RATE SCHEDULE AOT (Continued)

 

5. RATES AND CHARGES

 

5.1 Applicable Rates: The rates for service under this Rate Schedule are the applicable

maximum rates shown on effective Sheet No. 6 of Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff; provided,

however, that Transporter has the right at any time and from time to time to adjust the

rates applicable to service under this Rate Schedule, including the component for fuel

and losses, upon notice to Shipper to any level not less than the minimum or more than

the maximum rates. In the event that Transporter makes such an adjustment, such

adjusted rate shall apply solely to service at the receipt and/or delivery points agreed

upon by Shipper and Transporter and shall be applicable solely for the period agreed

upon by Shipper and Transporter.

 

In the event Transporter and Shipper agree to establish a rate which is not subject to

change and which is to be charged for the duration of the transportation service, such

rate will be set forth in the applicable Transportation Agreement. Transporter shall

file with FERC the required reports of any adjustment below the maximum rates for

service under this Rate Schedule.

 

5.2 New Facilities Charge: In addition to the rates pursuant to Section 5.1 of this Rate

Schedule, Transporter shall charge Shipper an amount to recoup 100% of the cost of

facilities (including applicable income taxes) constructed at the Shipper's request in

order to provide transportation service under this Rate Schedule. Transporter shall not

use the amounts so collected (both costs and revenues) in establishing its general

system rates. Shipper shall pay the New Facilities Charge by lump sum payment based on

Transporter's estimated cost prior to any construction activity, unless another form of

payment is otherwise mutually agreed upon.

 

Transporter will construct only those facilities to render transportation services

hereunder which interconnect with facilities that either cross or are immediately

adjacent to Transporter's existing facilities; provided, however, Transporter shall not

construct facilities hereunder which will result in the expansion or diminishment of

Transporter's mainline capacity or which compromise the operational integrity of

Transporter's pipeline system. Transporter will own and operate all facilities

constructed.

 

5.3 Incidental Charges: In addition to the rates and charges pursuant to Section 5.1 and

5.2 of this Rate Schedule, Transporter shall charge Shipper an amount to reimburse

Transporter 100% for any filing or similar fees, which have not been previously paid by

Shipper, which Transporter incurs in establishing or rendering service. Transporter

shall not use the amounts so collected (both costs and revenues) in establishing its

general system rates.
