Emergency Eminence Storage Withdrawal Service

(Continued)

 

 

 

5. WITHDRAWALS FROM STORAGE

 

5.1 Emergency Eminence Storage Withdrawal Service is limited to an aggregate daily

withdrawal quantity equal to the combined Storage Demand Quantities of all Buyers

under this rate schedule. Should operating conditions permit, the daily withdrawal

capability shall be increased by Seller. Seller shall endeavor to withdraw and

deliver, on any one day, as much of Buyer's nomination for such day as operating

conditions permit, and in no event shall Buyer be allocated less than its Storage

Demand. If, however, the total of all nominations for a day exceeds the total

quantity which Seller can withdraw from storage on such day, the total nominations for

such day shall be allocated pro rata among the nominating Buyers based on Storage

Demand.

 

5.2 The total aggregate quantity available for withdrawal during any force majeure event

may be adjusted downward to the extent that withdrawals from prior force majeure

events have not been returned. Withdrawal quantities may be adjusted to the extent

that the capacity or deliverability of the Eminence storage field varies with factors

unrelated to the level of inventory, such as force majeure or operating conditions.

 

5.3 When Buyer withdraws gas under this rate schedule, Buyer shall nominate quantities for

withdrawal according to Seller's nomination and ranking deadlines as set forth in

Section 28.1 of the General Terms and Conditions. Seller, in its sole judgment, may

waive any nomination and ranking deadlines, on a non-discriminatory basis, if Seller

determines operating conditions permit. Seller shall thereupon withdraw for Buyer the

quantity of gas scheduled. Gas for withdrawal hereunder shall be made available to

Buyer at the delivery point set forth in the executed EESWS service agreement.

 

 

6. INJECTIONS INTO STORAGE

 

6.1 Upon the termination of the force majeure event applicable to Buyer or the depletion of

quantities available under this rate schedule, whichever occurs first, Buyer will be

required to schedule injection returns plus fuel at a daily rate such that the

quantities withdrawn will be replaced within 30 days, or such longer period that may be

required as a result of injection limitations. Seller shall have the right to limit

Buyer's daily injection rate to the Storage Injection Quantity specified in Buyer's

service agreement unless operating conditions permit a greater injection quantity. If

Buyer fails to meet the injection return deadline, Buyer shall be charged a penalty on

the unreturned quantities of two times the Zone 4 "Sell" Price, which shall be the

highest weekly Reference Spot Price for Zone 4, as set forth in Section 37.1(a) of the

General Terms and Conditions for the month(s) in which all quantities should have been

replaced. The unreturned quantity multiplied by one times the Zone 4 Sell Price will

be considered the penalty revenue that will be distributed pursuant to Section 54 of

the General Terms and Conditions. The remaining penalty dollars (the unreturned

quantity multiplied by one times the Zone 4 Sell Price), which is representative of

Seller's cost to replenish the gas in the Eminence storage field, will be included in

the Cash Out Refund calculation pursuant to Section 15 of the General Terms and

Conditions.
