11A. SEGMENTED CAPACITY
A Shipper may segment its capacity into separate parts for its own use
or for the purpose of releasing that capacity to Replacement Shippers.
Transporter shall not have the obligation to schedule Shipper's firm capacity
in segments if, in Transporter's discretion, scheduling such segments (whether
such segments be on the mainline or on a lateral) will: (a) impair the safe
operation of Transporter's system,(b) impair Transporter's ability to provide
reliable service to any Shipper, or (c) result in the combined nominations of
Releasing Shipper and any Replacement Shipper who has obtained all or a
portion of Releasing Shipper's capacity through capacity release to exceed
Releasing Shipper's MDQ for the contract with Transporter on any segment of
capacity (but Transporter will schedule overlapping segmented capacity
nominations when the releasing shippers' MDQ for that overlapping segment is
not exceeded). A Shipper's segmented transactions may consist of a forwardhaul
up to the Shipper's MDQ and a backhaul up to Shipper's MDQ to the same point
at the same time.
Unless Releasing Shipper and its Replacement Shipper agree otherwise, if
Releasing Shipper and its Replacement Shipper do submit combined nominations
that exceed Releasing Shipper's MDQ for the contract with Transporter on any
segment of capacity, then Releasing Shipper's nomination shall be scheduled
first by Transporter up to the level of Releasing Shipper's MDQ, and the
remaining segmented capacity, if any, shall be available for scheduling
Replacement Shipper's nomination.
If Transporter does deny a Shipper's request for scheduling use of
segmented capacity, Transporter must provide Shipper with an explanation of
the reasons for the denial within 24 hours.
