RATE SCHEDULE FSS

FIRM STORAGE SERVICE (Continued)

 

Within five (5) Business Days following Transporter's receipt of a

valid Request for Service from a Shipper requesting service under

this Rate Schedule FSS, Transporter shall solicit proposals from

third-party providers for off-system firm storage services to be

provided at Points of Receipt and Delivery on Transporter's

system. Transporter shall allow third-party providers fifteen

(15) Business Days to respond to Transporter's solicitation. Such

off-system storage services may include related transportation

services to and from Transporter's system. Transporter shall

select the best third-party proposal on the basis of (1) the

degree to which the proposal matches the service requested by

Shipper, and (2) the proposal with the lowest cost. Upon

determining the best proposal, Transporter shall calculate cost-

based rates as the Firm Storage Service component of service under

Rate Schedule NNS consisting of the pass-through of all costs

under Transporter's service agreements with third-party providers

for off-system firm storage and related transportation services.

Transporter shall provide to Shipper a detailed explanation of its

calculation of the cost-based rates. If Shipper agrees to pay the

cost-based rates determined by Transporter, Transporter shall

execute the service agreement(s) with the third-party provider for

off-system firm storage and related transportation services and

Transporter and Shipper shall execute the Service Agreement for

service under this Rate Schedule FSS. Transporter shall not be

obligated to honor Shipper's Request for Service if Transporter

does not receive an acceptable response to its solicitation of off-

system capacity or if Shipper does not agree to pay the cost-based

rates for firm storage services.

 

Shipper's rights to extend service under its Service Agreement,

including any rights of first refusal, shall be limited by

Transporter's rights to extend the term of its service agreements

for off-system firm storage and related transportation services,

provided that such limitations on Transporter's right to extend

its off-system capacity arrangements must be specified in a third-

party provider's tariff and/or as provided by FERC's regulations.
