7. Standard Quantity - As stated in NAESB Standard 1.3.14, the standard quantity for
nominations, confirmation and scheduling is dekatherms per Gas Day in the United
States, and gigajoules per Gas Day in Canada and gigacalories in Mexico. (For
reference 1 dekatherm = 1,000,000 Btu's; 1 gigajoule = 1,000,000,000 joules; and 1
gigacalorie = 1,000,000,000 calories.) For commercial purposes, the standard
conversion factor between dekatherms and gigajoules is 1.055056 gigajoules per
dekatherm and between dekatherms and gigacalories is 0.251996 gigacalories per
dekatherm. The standard Btu is the International Btu, which is also called the
Btu(IT); the standard joule is the joule specified in the SI system of units.
8. To the extent Transporter is unable to complete a nomination confirmation pursuant
to this section 5 due to inaccurate, untimely or incomplete data, Transporter shall
undertake reasonable efforts to confirm the transaction on a non-discriminatory
basis until such time that the transaction is adequately verified by the parties,
rectified by other means such as utilization of a PALS-1 service, or Transporter
determines that the nomination is invalid and it is then rejected.
1. Transporter shall schedule all transportation quantities as nominated by Shippers
in accordance with the operationally available capacity, as determined by
Transporter on any Gas Day, and consistent with the following priorities.
(a) Firm Transportation quantities within Shipper's Contracted Capacity flowing
in the contractual direction and within the path from the Primary Receipt
Points to the Primary Delivery Points under Rate Schedules FT-1, FT-L, or
FT-H, pro rata based on each Shipper's Contracted Capacity; provided a
Shipper's Scheduled Quantity shall not exceed such Shipper's nomination;
(b) Firm Transportation quantities within Shipper's Contracted Capacity under
Rate Schedules FT-1, FT-L, or FT-H where such quantities flow outside the
path between Primary Receipt and Primary Delivery Point(s) or not in the
contracted direction of Shipper's Contracted Capacity, pro rata based on
each Shipper's Contracted Capacity; provided a Shipper's Scheduled Quantity
shall not exceed such Shipper's nomination;
(c) Authorized Overrun service, and Interruptible service provided pursuant to
the IT-1 and the PALS-1 Rate Schedules, by price from highest to lowest,
except scheduling shall be pro rata based on confirmed quantities among
Shippers paying the same rate.
2. Scheduling at a specific Receipt/Delivery Point shall be (i) limited to Shippers
nominating at such Receipt/Delivery Point; and (ii) applied to those Shippers in
accordance with the priorities set forth in section 6.1, except that Shippers for
which such Point is a Primary Point shall have priority over Shippers for which
such Point is an Alternate Point.
3. Pursuant to NAESB Standard 1.3.23, rankings shall be included in the list of data
elements. Transporter shall use service requester provided rankings when making
reductions during the scheduling and curtailment process when this does not
conflict with Tariff-based rules. Pursuant to NAESB Standard 2.3.26, the time
limitation for disputes of allocations shall be 6 months from the date of the
initial month-end allocation with a 3-month rebuttal period. This standard shall
not apply in the case of deliberate omission or misrepresentation or mutual mistake
of fact. Parties' other statutory or contractual rights shall not otherwise be
diminished by this standard.
