GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

 

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

procedure:

 

(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.
