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.
