4.3 (a) The upstream or downstream party providing the

point confirmation shall submit the predetermined

daily allocation methodology to Richfield after or

during confirmation and before start of gas day.

Richfield shall accept GISB-approved predetermined

daily allocation methodology types from the

upstream or downstream custody transfer party who

is providing the point confirmation. Richfield

shall send back "confirmation" of receipt of the

predetermined daily allocation methodology within

15 minutes. Only one predetermined daily

allocation methodology will be applied per

allocation period. List of predetermined daily

allocation methodology types agreed upon: Ranked,

Pro Rata, Percentage, and Swing. The same standard

predetermined daily allocation methodologies should

be available for use at all Points of Delivery or

Redelivery. The types of predetermined daily

allocation methodologies is a list from which two

parties may agree. If the two parties cannot agree

upon a predetermined daily allocation methodology,

pro rata based upon confirmed nominations shall be

used as the default method. In this case, the

party responsible for custody transfer (the party

performing the measurement function) shall provide

the allocation. However, there is no need to

submit a daily allocation methodology if Richfield

has an OBA in effect for a Point of Delivery or

Redelivery. The responsibility for calculation and

reporting of allocated quantities shall rest with

Richfield. Richfield shall provide allocation

statements. The timing for reporting daily

operational allocations after the gas has flowed is

within one business day after end of gas day. If

the best available data for reporting daily

operational allocations is the scheduled quantity,

that quantity shall be used for the daily

operational allocation.

 

(b) Changes to the daily allocation methodology may be

made during the month. Such changes must be

submitted before the start of the day and shall be

effective prospectively. When the predetermined

daily allocation methodology is rank, swing or

percentage, a new allocation detail may be needed

when a nomination changes. No retroactive

reallocations of any transactions shall be

permitted.

 

(c) If requested by a shipper or supplier of

Richfield's system, Richfield will offer at least

one pool. Deliveries from Points of Delivery will

be delivered directly into at least one pool and

Points of Receipt will receive quantities from at

least one pool, excluding non-contiguous

facilities. Transactions at pooling points will

not be consolidated for billing purposes.
