5.4 Overrun Charge
If Shipper should on any Gas Day take, under this Rate Schedule, a quantity of gas
more than the effective quantity applicable to such Shipper established in an
Operational Flow Order pursuant to Section 8 of the General Terms and Conditions,
then such excess quantity shall constitute an unauthorized overrun quantity.
Shipper shall pay Company an unauthorized overrun charge equal to fifteen dollars
($15.00) for each Dth of excess deliveries to Shipper. The payment of the overrun
charge is in addition to any other remedies Company may have against Shipper for
Shipper's unauthorized overrun.
If Shipper, upon receiving the advanced approval by Company, should on any Gas Day
transport under this Rate Schedule a quantity of natural gas in excess of
Shipper's TQ under Shipper's Firm Transportation Agreement, then such excess
quantity shall constitute authorized overrun quantities.
Shipper shall nominate authorized overrun quantities through Company's system.
Authorized overrun quantities shall be requested on a separate transaction.
Shipper shall pay Company a rate equal to the volumetric derivative of the maximum
transportation charge applicable to the service under its Firm Transportation
Agreement pursuant to this Rate Schedule designed on a 100 percent load factor
basis multiplied by the amount of the authorized overrun quantity, unless the
parties mutually agree otherwise.
5.5 Negotiated Rates
Notwithstanding any provision of Company's effective FERC Gas Tariff to the
contrary, Company and Shipper may mutually agree in writing to a Negotiated Rate
with respect to rates, rate components, charges, or credits that are otherwise
prescribed, required, established or imposed by this Rate Schedule or by any other
applicable provision of Company's effective FERC Gas Tariff. The Negotiated Rate
may be less than, equal to or greater than the Maximum Rate; shall not be less
than the Minimum Rate; may be based on a rate design other than straight fixed
variable; and may include a minimum quantity. The Maximum Rate shall be available
to any Shipper that does not choose a Negotiated Rate. Nothing in the provisions
governing Negotiated Rate Agreements shall authorize Company or Shipper to violate
FERC's policy with respect to negotiation of terms and conditions of service.
Such Negotiated Rate shall be set forth on an Exhibit of the executed Firm
Transportation Agreement and on the Statement of Negotiated Rates in Company's
FERC Gas Tariff.
