GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
19. SHIPPER'S FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH TERMS
Transporter shall not be required to perform service under any
transportation rate schedule included in this Volume No. 1 if
Shipper fails to comply with the terms of its transportation
service agreement and the General Terms and Conditions.
20. SYSTEM OPERATION
Transporter may take such action as reasonably necessary to
prevent damage to or material deterioration of its transmission
system and to maintain the operational integrity of the system.
21. ANNUAL CHARGE ADJUSTMENT PROVISION
21.1 PURPOSE. Transporter is assessed an annual
charge by the FERC to reimburse the United States
Treasury for costs incurred by the Commission, other
than costs incurred in administering Part I of the Federal
Power Act, and costs not covered by filing fees. To
enable Transporter to recover his annual charge, pursuant
to 18 C.F.R. 154.38(d)(6), this section establishes an
Annual Charge Adjustment to be applicable to all of
Transporter's rate schedules as set forth in the Statement
of Rates of this FERC Gas Tariff, Volume No. 1.
21.2 BASIS OF ANNUAL CHARGE ADJUSTMENT. The rate
schedules specified in the Statement of Rates of this
tariff shall include an increment for an Annual Charge
Adjustment. Such adjustment shall be a base increment,
specified by the Commission at the time the Commission
calculates the annual charge bills, and adjusted to
Transporter's pressure base and heat content, if required.
21.3 ACCOUNTING PROCEDURE. Transporter will account for
annual charges paid by charging the amount to Account No.
928, Regulatory Commission Expenses, of the Commission's
Uniform System of Accounts. It is Transporter's intent
not to recover any annual charges recorded in FERC Account
No. 928 in an NGA section 4 rate case.
21.4 FILING PROCEDURE. Filing by the Transporter to
change the Annual Charge Adjustment shall be made at
least 30 days prior to the proposed effective date, with
such period inclusive of 30 days' notice, unless, for
good cause shown, lesser periods are allowed by valid
Commission order. Any filing by Transporter pursuant to
this 21 shall not become effective until Transporter
has made payment of the annual charge and such filing
has been approved by the Commission.
