GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (continued)

 

32. NEGOTIATED RATES (continued)

 

32.5 Accounting Treatment

 

Transporter will establish a new sub-account to record the

revenues received from any negotiated rate transactions and shall

maintain supporting information at a level of detail that would be

sufficient for Natural Gas Act Section 4 rate change filing

purposes. Transporter will keep separate and identifiable each

quantity transported, billing determinant, rate component,

surcharge, and revenue associated with a negotiated rate to permit

filings in the form of Statements G, I, and J in future rate

proceedings.

 

If, in a Negotiated Rate arrangement, Transporter negotiates a

fuel retention percentage that is lower than the maximum rate

level, Transporter will assume any under-recovery of retainage

from Negotiated Rate Shippers in order to ensure that its recourse

Shippers are not better or worse off as a consequence of

Transporter's agreement to undertake Negotiated Rate arrangements

with individual Shippers. To accomplish this, Transporter shall

impute the recourse fuel retention percentage to Negotiated Rate

Shippers' transportation quantities, or otherwise treat Negotiated

Rate Shippers as if they were subject to the recourse fuel

retention percentage, in performing any calculation of recourse

fuel retention percentages or fuel retention quantities.

 

32.6 Documentation

 

Any Negotiated Rate agreed to by Transporter and Shipper pursuant

to this Section 32 shall be implemented by Transporter's

completion of a pro forma Statement of Negotiated Rates with the

applicable Negotiated Rate-related provisions as described in

Section 32.7 herein. Transporter shall tender such pro forma

Statement of Negotiated Rates to Shipper together with a

transmittal letter for counter-execution by Shipper, which

transmittal letter shall have the sole purpose of memorializing

Transporter's and Shipper's mutual agreement to the rate-related

provisions reflected on such attached pro forma Statement of

Negotiated Rates. After execution by both Transporter and

Shipper, Transporter shall file a Statement of Negotiated Rates

with the Commission which shall contain rate-related provisions

identical to the rate-related provisions reflected on the pro

forma Statement of Negotiated Rates agreed to by Transporter and

Shipper. Any Negotiated Rate agreed to pursuant to this Section

32 shall become effective only after acceptance by the Commission;

prior to such date the rate applicable to any such service shall

be the maximum recourse rate.
