RATE SCHEDULE FFTS

------------------

 

(d) Natural posts unsubscribed firm transportation capacity by

pipeline segment on the Informational Postings portion of its Interactive

Website pursuant to Section 5.1(e) of the General Terms and Conditions of

this Tariff. Such capacity will be available to provide service under

either Rate Schedule FTS or FFTS; provided, however, that Natural may

elect to make such firm capacity, available only for service under Rate

Schedule FTS. Natural will only utilize for service under Rate Schedule

FFTS firm capacity which is posted as available (such postings to be on

the same basis and following the same procedures as for Rate Schedule

FTS) and which is in excess of Natural's existing firm commitments. If

Natural awards firm capacity under this Rate Schedule FFTS, it will

adjust the firm capacity posting on the Interactive Website to reflect

its obligations under the FFTS Agreement. The adjustment may consist of

a reduction in the unsubscribed firm capacity, based on an engineering

study. Given the nature of service under Rate Schedule FFTS

(specifically the parameters relating to Available Days under the FFTS

Agreement), Natural may not have to reduce posted firm capacity on a one-

to-one basis in relation to the MDQ under the FFTS Agreement.

Alternatively, Natural may continue to reflect the capacity dedicated to

the FFTS Agreement as unsubscribed firm capacity, but subject to limits

on the number of days available based on the Available Day and related

parameters under the FFTS Agreement. For the purposes of this provision,

the term "related parameters" shall include the minimum and maximum

number of Available Days, the associated time period(s), whether Shipper

will accept partial Available Days (and any limitations thereon) and any

restrictions in the FFTS Agreement that certain days are not Available

Days. The revised firm capacity posted as unsubscribed will be available

for service under Rate Schedule FTS or Rate Schedule FFTS; provided,

however, that Natural may elect to make such firm capacity available only

for service under Rate Schedule FTS.

 

(e) The service provided under this Rate Schedule FFTS shall

be performed under Part 284 of the Commission's Regulations. Shipper

shall only tender gas for transportation under this Rate Schedule FFTS to

the extent such service would qualify under the applicable statutes,

regulations, Commission orders and the blanket certificate authorizing

service by Natural under this Rate Schedule. For service under Subpart B

of Part 284 of the Commission's Regulations, Shipper shall provide to

Natural appropriate certification, including sufficient information in

order for Natural to verify that the service qualifies under Subpart B of

Part 284 of the Regulations. Where required by the Commission's

Regulations, Shipper shall (prior to tendering gas under an FFTS

Agreement) cause the intrastate pipeline or local distribution company on

whose behalf the service will be provided to submit the necessary

certification.
