RATE SCHEDULE DSS

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

 

deemed continuing for the remainder of the withdrawal season unless

Shipper specified otherwise, but Shipper must submit a new waiver

request for any subsequent withdrawal season. If Shipper's remaining

balance on April 30 under a DSS Agreement is greater than that allowed

above, Shipper shall not be subject to Overrun Charges on such excess

balance (unless some other limitation is exceeded) but shall pay (as

applicable):

 

(1) A charge equal to the Authorized Inventory Cycling

Rate multiplied by the volume representing that portion of the

remaining inventory in excess of fifty percent (50%) of its MSV as to

which Shipper has obtained cycling relief; and/or

 

(2) A charge equal to the Unauthorized Inventory

Cycling Rate multiplied by the volume representing that portion of the

remaining inventory in excess of fifty percent (50%) of its MSV as to

which Shipper has not obtained cycling relief from Natural.

 

(c) Under circumstances where a waiver of the cycling

requirement would be granted under subsection (b), Natural may provide

cycling on behalf of Shippers on a non-discriminatory basis to the

extent operationally feasible. Under this Cycling Option, the Rate

Schedule DSS account of a Shipper will be reduced prior to April 30,

with equivalent volumes to be returned to Shipper's Rate Schedule DSS

account on the ensuing May 1. Natural shall assess a Cycling Option

Charge equal to the Cycling Option Rate multiplied by the volumes

cycled. The Cycling Option Charge shall be equal to or greater than

the charge at the minimum Cycling Option Rate, but no greater than the

charge based on the maximum Cycling Option Rate. The minimum and

maximum Cycling Option Rate shall equal the minimum and maximum

Authorized Inventory Cycling Rate, respectively. Prior to granting any

requests for the Cycling Option, Natural shall post on the

Informational Postings portion of its Interactive Website the

availability of the Cycling Option and the rate Natural will charge

(within the applicable maximum and minimum).

 

5.5 (a) A Shipper under this Rate Schedule DSS may request, as

part of its nomination, injections in excess of IQ or in excess of its

firm rights under Section 5.3(c) hereto or injections which would

cause it to exceed its MSV and may, as part of its nomination, request

withdrawals in excess of WQ or of its firm rights under Section

5.1(c). Such withdrawals and injections are subject to Section 9 of

this Rate Schedule DSS. Rights available under Section 5.5(c) are

firm and available on a no-notice basis and do not require a

nomination.
