6. CONDITIONS AND LIMITATIONS APPLICABLE TO DAILY DEMAND SERVICE (Continued)
(c) If, on any Gas Day, Company determines that the capacity of its system, or any
portion thereof, including the points at which gas is tendered for transportation,
is insufficient to satisfy all requirements for Daily Demand Service, or if any of
the conditions set forth in Subsection 6(a) of this Rate Schedule are not
satisfied in full, Company shall reduce the Daily Demand Service available to each
Shipper pro rata on the basis of the Daily Demand Quantity of such Shipper;
provided, however, that if the amount of Daily Demand Service is reduced due to
the failure of a Shipper to comply with an Operational Flow Order, Company shall,
to the extent practicable, first reduce the Daily Demand Service available to such
Shipper prior to reducing the Daily Demand Service available to other Shippers.
(d) Nothing in Subsection 6(a) of this Rate Schedule shall limit the ability of a
Shipper to contract with any gas supplier it desires, provided that Shipper
agrees to the appointment of a Shipper's designee in accordance with
Subsection 6(a)(iii) of this Rate Schedule.
7. DISPOSITION OF EXCESS GAS
Under the cash-out procedures of Section 5 of this Rate Schedule and in order to
alleviate conditions that threaten the integrity of its system, Company may
periodically acquire quantities of gas that are in excess of system needs. Company
shall have the right to make interruptible sales of such excess gas from time to time
at mainline receipt points on Company's system pursuant to the terms of the blanket
certificate of public convenience and necessity granted to Company pursuant to
18 C.F.R. Section 284.284(6) and Order No. 636. Such sales shall be made under rates,
terms and conditions mutually agreed upon between Company and the purchasers; provided,
however, that all such sales shall be fully interruptible and shall be curtailed
pro rata without regard to transportation arrangements made by purchasers.
8. APPLICABLE RATES
The rates for service under this Rate Schedule, when applicable, are the applicable
Maximum Rates listed on the Statement of Rates in Company's FERC Gas Tariff.
Company may waive any rights hereunder or any obligations of Balancing Provider
hereunder on a basis which is not unduly discriminatory; provided that no waiver shall
operate or be construed as a waiver of other or further rights or obligations, whether
of a like or different character.
10. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Balancing Provider shall provide Company with such information as is needed to meet the
requirements placed on Company by regulation, rule, and/or order. Furthermore, any
terms or conditions not specified in this Rate Schedule shall be determined consistent
with Company's General Terms and Conditions specified in Volume I of Company's Tariff,
which are incorporated into this Rate Schedule.
