382.202 of the FERC Rules and Regulations and Order No. 472. This Section
authorizes Pipeline to recover from Shippers the annual charge assessed to
Pipeline by the Commission for Commission budgetary expenses. Pipeline shall
recover this charge by including in Pipeline’s transportation rates a per unit
rate equivalent to the per Dt charge assessed against Pipeline by the

charge only once on the same quantities of gas.

effective each October 1.
(b) Unit Rate. Pipeline’s unit rate shall be the unit rate used by the
Commission to determine the annual assessment to Pipeline adjusted, as
appropriate, to a thermal basis.

Schedules contained in Pipeline’s FERC Gas Tariff and all services performed
under the Commission’s Regulations.
24.3 Procedures to Determine ACA Charge Unit Rate. Pipeline shall determine
the ACA Charge Unit Rate by using the unit rate used by the Commission to
determine Pipeline’s annual charge adjustment and adjust such rate, as
appropriate, to a thermal basis. Pipeline shall round such Unit Rate to the
nearest one-hundredth of one cent ($0.0001).
