RATE SCHEDULE DSS

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

 

(c) A Shipper's firm right to withdraw gas under

delivered firm storage service over any consecutive fifteen (15) day

period may not exceed that Shipper's average WQ over that period

multiplied by ten (10). A Shipper may request waiver of this

limitation, but any withdrawals made pursuant to such waiver shall be

provided on an interruptible basis with the same priority as for

authorized overruns under Section 5.5(b) of this Rate Schedule DSS;

i.e., with higher priority than other authorized overrun and

interruptible provided neither Shipper's MDQ nor its MSV is exceeded.

If the request is made at least forty-eight (48) hours but not more

than seventy-two (72) hours before the Shipper would become subject to

this limitation, Natural will advise such Shipper as to whether it

can waive this restriction in whole or in part within five (5)

business hours after receipt of the request. The waiver request and

Natural's response shall specify precisely the waiver sought and

granted and also how the waiver is to affect future fifteen (15) day

periods and the monthly requirements under subsection (b) of this

Section 5.1.

 

(d) If Shipper exceeds its firm withdrawal rights

hereunder, or fails to satisfy its minimum withdrawal obligation under

subsection (b), the volume by which Shipper exceeds its rights and/or

the volume by which Shipper fails to satisfy its minimum monthly

withdrawal obligation shall be subject to Overrun Charges under

Section 12 of the General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff.

 

5.2 A Shipper's MSV is the maximum volume of gas which it is

entitled to have in storage under this Rate Schedule DSS on a firm

basis at any time. A Shipper's MSV equals its MDQ under the DSS

Agreement multiplied by fifty (50). If a Shipper exceeds its MSV, it

shall be subject to Overrun Charges as provided in Section 12 of the

General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff. In no event will a

Shipper be allowed to withdraw more gas than it has in storage; i.e.,

a Shipper may not create a negative inventory.

 

5.3 A Shipper's IQ is the maximum amount of gas it can inject

into delivered firm storage service on a firm basis on any day,

subject to subsection (c) below. If a Shipper exceeds its firm

injection rights hereunder, such excess injections shall be subject to

Overrun Charges under Section 12 of the General Terms and Conditions

of this Tariff.

 

(a) For the period from November 1 through April 30, a

Shipper's IQ varies by time period and is a percentage of its MDQ, as

follows:
