GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Section 8

 

 

8. Request for Service Process

 

8.1 Request for Service

 

Texas Gas will post its available firm capacity on the Texas Gas Internet Website.

 

A Request for Service is required to initiate a new service agreement or a change

to an existing service agreement; provided that, a Request for Service is not

required for agreement extensions subject to the bilateral evergreen or unilateral

rollover provisions of Section 10.2, unless such extensions involve changes

subject to auction and bidding procedures of Section 11.1. Within a reasonable

time after submission of a Request for Service, Texas Gas and Customer shall agree

upon the quantities of gas to be transported by Texas Gas. Except as otherwise

provided above, any increase or decrease in transportation Contract Demand is

subject to the Request for Service process; provided, however, that a decrease in

transportation Contract Demand is not subject to the auction and bidding

procedures of Section 11.1. Contract Demand may be increased or decreased upon

mutual agreement by the parties through an amendment to the existing service

agreement or through execution of a new service agreement; provided, however, that

Contract Demand may be decreased only at the end of the term of an agreement for

an extension of such agreement, except as specified in Section 8.8 of the General

Terms and Conditions. A Request for Service shall be submitted on the applicable

Transportation Request Form available under the "Forms" link on the Texas Gas

Internet website. A Request for Service shall be submitted to Texas Gas by

facsimile to the applicable number or by e-mail as specified on the Transportation

Request Form. The information required for a valid Request for Service is

specified below.

 

 

8.2 The Queue

 

Each Request for Service will be logged based upon the date and time received.

This log is referred to herein as the "Queue." The Queue is used to track Requests

for Service and to ensure that Requests for Service are evaluated on a first-come,

first-served basis. Transportation Request Forms received pursuant to an ongoing

auction will not be added to the Queue but will be maintained as part of auction

documentation, and the Transportation Request Form submitted by the Customer(s)

who are deemed to have best bid(s) will be validated and used to prepare the

service agreement(s) for awarded capacity.

 

A Request for Service which does not contain all information specified in 8.3.1

(a)-(h), 8.3.2 (a)-(e), and, if applicable, 8.3.4 ("Minimum Information") will be

immediately removed from the Queue. If a Customer whose Request for Service was

removed from the queue in accordance with the previous sentence provides all

missing information, the Request for Service will be logged into the Queue based

on the date and time such information is received.

 

A Request for Service which contains the Minimum Information but is otherwise

incomplete or unsubstantiated will maintain its queue position; however such

Request for Service will be removed from the Queue if such information is not

provided within one (1) Business Day of notification by Texas Gas.

 

Texas Gas shall, within three (3) Business Days from the receipt of a Request for

Service, notify a Customer whose Request for Service is determined to be invalid

in accordance with Section 8.3 of these General Terms and Conditions and shall

state the reason(s) that the Request for Service is invalid. A Request for

Service that is determined to be invalid will be removed from the Queue.
