GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (continued)

 

26. PREDETERMINED ALLOCATIONS.

 

26.1 A Predetermined Allocation ("PDA") is an instruction from the

participants in the scheduling process that is submitted in

advance of Natural Gas flow that tells Transporter how much and in

what order to allocate quantities of Natural Gas among the various

participants in the scheduling process after Natural Gas has

flowed. Transporter will permit upstream and downstream

operators, and all owners of Natural Gas that submit a Nomination

or confirmation, to submit a PDA for each Day. PDAs must be

submitted prior to Natural Gas flow. Transporter will send a

confirmation that it has received a PDA within 15 minutes of

receipt. If a PDA is not submitted prior to Natural Gas flow,

Transporter will allocate Natural Gas to each Shipper on a pro

rata basis based on Nominations.

 

26.2 Transporter will strive to provide the most accurate and timely

data available. To the extent possible, Transporter will base

prior period adjustments on actual measurement data and finalized

allocations.

 

26.3 Transporter will support the following allocation methodology

types at all points: ranked, pro rata, percentage, swing, and

operator provided value. Transporter will accept the PDA if

operationally or administratively feasible. Transporter will not

limit the number of PDA allocation methodologies that may be used

during an allocation period. If the PDA allocation methodology is

rank, swing, operator provided value or percentage, a new PDA may

be required if the Nominations change affects an existing PDA. If

an OBA is in effect at a point, a PDA is not required to be

submitted. Transporter will post on its Internet Website those

Point(s) of Receipt and Point(s) of Delivery where an OBA is in

effect.

 

26.4 Transporter will report daily operational allocations within one

Business Day after the end of the Gas Day in which Natural Gas has

flowed. If the best available data for reporting daily

operational allocations is the scheduled quantity, Transporter

will use the scheduled quantity for the daily operational

allocation. Shipper may rely on Transporter's daily operational

allocation for adjusting Nominations to avoid imbalances.

 

26.5 Transporter will calculate and report allocated quantities, and

provide allocation statements. Allocations will be provided by

party, contract and location. Allocations at Point(s) of Delivery

will be performed at the lowest level of detail provided by

Nominations and PDAs.

 

26.6 Any PDA submitted in accordance with the provisions set forth in

this Section 26 shall be binding as to Transporter and as to each

and every entity to whom gas is allocated at the Point(s) of

Receipt and Point(s) of Delivery. Transporter shall not be liable

to any Shipper or third party as a result of Transporter's

reliance on any PDA received in accordance with the provisions set

forth in this Section 26.
