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.

 

6. SCHEDULING

 

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.
