RATE SCHEDULE BESS
(c) The service provided under this Rate Schedule BESS shall
be performed under Part 284 of the Commission's Regulations. Shipper
shall only tender gas under this Rate Schedule BESS to the extent
service hereunder 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 for storage under a BESS Agreement) cause the
intrastate pipeline or local distribution company on whose behalf
the service will be provided to submit the necessary certification.
3. PRIORITY OF SERVICE
(a) Service hereunder is provided on an interruptible basis.
Curtailment and priorities of service for the purposes of scheduling
and curtailment shall be governed by the General Terms and
Conditions of this Tariff.
(b) Natural may at any time notify Shipper of a curtailment
in accordance with the General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff,
in which event Shipper must immediately cease deliveries to or
receipt of gas from Natural, in whole or in part as directed by
Natural hereunder, and may be required by Natural to withdraw all or
any part of the gas being held by Natural for Shipper's account.
Natural shall specify the quantities to be curtailed in its order.
If Shipper is required by Natural to withdraw gas being held by
Natural for its account, Shipper shall be required to accept such
gas over a period of time determined by dividing (i) the volume of
gas Shipper is required to withdraw by (ii) 50% of Shipper's MDQ. If
Natural is unable to withdraw any volumes requested by Shipper
within Shipper's MDQ, this period shall be extended accordingly.
(c) If Shipper fails to comply with any curtailment order of
Natural under this Section 3, Shipper shall pay Natural a penalty of
$5.00 per Dth for all tenders or takes which varies by more than 10%
each day from the quantities specified in such curtailment order. In
addition, if Shipper fails to withdraw gas during the period
designated in subsection (b) hereof, any remaining balance as of the
end of that period shall be forfeited to Natural.
