Exhibit "B" to

Balancing Agreement for use at Points of Delivery

between Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company ("Transporter") and

____________________ (Pipeline Balancing Party)

dated ______________________

 

 

 

Downstream Storage Swing Option

 

Pipeline Balancing Party has elected to facilitate the use by its customers who also

have contracts under Transporter's Rate Schedule FS or who are TPP Shippers as defined

in Section 8(c)(i) of Rate Schedule LMS-MA ("Storage Contract Holders"), of

Transporter's Downstream Storage Swing Option ("DSS Option") as set forth at Section 9

of the LMS-MA Rate Schedule of Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff. In recognition of such

election, Transporter and Pipeline Balancing Party further agree as follows:

 

1. The definitions set forth at Section 9(a) of Transporter's LMS-MA Rate Schedule

shall apply to terms used in this Amendment.

 

2. Pipeline Balancing Party shall provide to Transporter on a daily basis on the

form provided by Transporter, the following information for all Storage Contract

Holders for whom Pipeline Balancing Party has elected the DSS Option: the

portion of the difference between the quantity of gas scheduled and the quantity

of gas delivered at the Downstream Delivery Point that should be treated as an

automatic storage injection or withdrawal or as scheduled transportation, and

whether that difference reflects an over-take, which should result in a

Transporter storage withdrawal or as a scheduled receipt at a TPP Service Point,

or whether that difference reflects an under-take, which should result in a

Transporter storage injection or as a scheduled delivery at a TPP Service Point.

Pipeline Balancing Party shall provide such information no later than two (2)

business days after the date of actual delivery of gas and shall provide the

information by fax unless Transporter and Pipeline Balancing Party agree to

another method of transmission of the information. Pipeline Balancing Party

shall provide such information separately for each Storage Contract Holder. In

addition, Pipeline Balancing Party shall provide monthly allocation statements

for each Downstream Delivery Point.

 

3. The Operational Imbalance as determined pursuant to Section 2 of the Balancing

Agreement shall be adjusted each day to reflect the appropriate portion of Daily

Variances at Downstream Delivery Points that are to be treated as scheduled

storage injections or withdrawals or as scheduled transportation in accordance

with the DSS Option. No adjustment to the imbalance at the Pipeline

Interconnect shall be made for that portion of Daily Variances that exceed the

limitations set forth at Section 9(g) of Transporter's LMS-MA Rate Schedule.
