Schedule LMS - MA
Load Management Service - Market Area (continued)
Refunds shall be based on the sum of commodity volumes for Non-Offending
parties for the applicable cashout period. Non-Offending parties shall
be determined on a monthly basis and are those shippers and OBA point
operators subject to the cashout provisions of Rate Schedules LMS-MA and
LMS-PA that had an imbalance within a zero to five percent tolerance (as
calculated according to Section 7(c) of this Rate Schedule) or 1000 Dth.
The total monthly commodity volumes for Non-Offending parties will be
accumulated for the applicable annual cashout period and a pro rata
allocation will be applied to the total amount to be refunded in order
to determine the refund amount for each party. When refunds are to be
made, Transporter shall include in the Annual Cashout Report a schedule
supporting the allocation of refunds to each party.
To the extent that the Net Cashout Balance in any Annual Cashout Period
results in a negative balance, such balance shall be carried forward and
applied to the next annual determination of the Net Cashout Balance.
(h) Mutual Assistance - In order to prevent or alleviate an operational
constraint on its system, Transporter may request that a Balancing Party
increase or decrease its flows at stated point(s) independent of the
nominations at that point(s). In any month in which a Balancing Party
conforms with the request made by Transporter, Transporter shall waive
all Daily Variance charges, for those days that Balancing Party provided
mutual assistance, accrued by the Balancing Party during such month.
The agreement to provide mutual assistance shall be at the discretion of
Balancing Party and Transporter.
8. Storage Swing Option
(a) A Balancing Party meeting the requirements set forth in this section may
elect to resolve Daily Imbalances through the Storage Swing Option. The
Storage Swing Option is designed to allow a Balancing Party with access
to storage contracts provided by Transporter under Rate Schedule FS or
IS or with access to swing service provided by a third party ("Third
Party Provider or TPP") to use such access for balancing of Daily
Imbalances. A Balancing Party may use any number of designated FS or IS
contracts or TPP Service Points (as defined in Section 8(c)(i) of this
Rate Schedule) at a time for swing purposes. Balancing Party's rights
hereunder shall be limited to those of the contracting party under the
applicable FS or IS contracts or TPP Service Points.
(b) Storage Swing Using a Storage Contract(s)
(i) General Requirements: A Balancing Party electing to use a
storage contract(s) under Transporter's Rate Schedule FS or IS
for swing purposes must provide Transporter with the following
information no later than 2 business days prior to when the
Storage Swing Option is to be effective and for each subsequent
re-election consistent with Section 5 of Rate Schedule LMS-MA:

applicable agency contract number(s), any applicable agent(s)
