GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
26. CHANGES IN RATES FOR STORAGE SERVICE RATE SCHEDULES TO REFLECT CHANGES BY PIPELINE PROVIDING
STORAGE SERVICE TO SELLER
26.1 Application - This Section sets forth the procedures to change Seller's rates in the
S-2 rate schedule when the pipeline providing storage service utilized in such rate
schedule changes the rates and charges payable by Seller for such storage service and
to flow-through refunds received from such pipeline.
26.2 Rate Schedule S-2
(a) Rate Change - The charges under Rate Schedule S-2 are shown on effective Sheet
No. 24 of Volume No. 1 of this Tariff. A change by Texas Eastern in the charges
payable by Seller under Rate Schedule X-28 shall, if such change is a reduction,
and may if such change is an increase, be reflected in Seller's S-2 rate
schedule by converting Texas Eastern's changed rates to Seller's tariff basis.
(b) Refunds - Within thirty (30) days of the receipt thereof, Seller shall refund to
its customers all amounts refunded to Seller by Texas Eastern under Texas
Eastern's Rate Schedule X-28, including any interest paid by Texas Eastern.
Each customer's proportionate part of such refund shall be determined in the
same manner as the refund from Texas Eastern.
(c) Rate Reduction - Within forty-five (45) days of any reduction by Texas Eastern
in its X-28 rates, Seller shall reduce its S-2 rates to reflect such reduction.
26.3 Procedure - A rate change filing under this Section 26 shall be by the following
(a) Effective Date - The effective date of a change, including a rate reduction
under Section 26.2 (c) hereof, shall, if possible, be at least forty-five (45)
days from the date of filing of such change: provided, however, such effective
date shall be coincident with the effective date of the filing by the pipeline
reflected in such change.
(b) Material to be Filed - Seller shall file with the Commission and serve on all
customers and interested state commissions the computation of the change
pursuant to this Section 26 and the revised Sheet No. 24. Such filing of the
computations and tariff sheet shall be sufficient as a rate change filing,
irrespective of any additional requirements of the Rules and Regulations of the
Commission under the Natural Gas Act.
27. ANNUAL CHARGE ADJUSTMENT (ACA) PROVISION
27.1 Application. This Section of the General Terms and Conditions is filed pursuant to
Section 154.402 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Regulations and Order
No. 472 issued May 29, 1987. This Section authorizes Seller to recover from Buyers
the annual charge assessed to Seller by the Commission for Commission budgetary
expenses. Seller shall recover this charge by including in Seller's storage and
transportation rates a per unit rate equivalent to the per dt charge assessed against
Seller by the Commission. When Seller provides service to Buyer under multiple
transaction arrangements on Seller's system, Seller will assess the ACA charge only
once on the same volume of gas. During the effectiveness of this ACA provision, it is
Seller's intent not to recover in an NGA Section 4 rate case any annual charges
recorded in FERC Account No. 928 assessed to Seller by the Commission pursuant to
Order No. 472.
