RATE SCHEDULE NSS

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

 

(b) The General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff

shall govern the applicability of, and the terms and conditions

relating to, rollovers and the right of first refusal vis a vis a NSS

Agreement. Upon termination of any NSS Agreement, and subject to

such rollover or right of first refusal, service by Natural to

Shipper thereunder shall be terminated and automatically abandoned.

 

(c) Natural may terminate any NSS Agreement if Natural

is required by the Commission or some other agency or court to

provide firm service for others utilizing the system capacity or

capability required for service under such NSS Agreement or if

Natural ceases (after receipt of any requisite regulatory

authorization) to offer service of the type covered by the NSS

Agreement; provided, however, that nothing herein shall be read to

protect Natural from the consequences of its own negligence.

 

5. INJECTION/WITHDRAWAL PARAMETERS

 

5.1 A Shipper's WQ defines the maximum quantity of gas which

it has a firm right to withdraw on any day under this Rate Schedule

NSS. If Shipper exceeds its firm withdrawal rights, it shall be

subject to Overrun Charges as provided in Section 12 of the General

Terms and Conditions of this Tariff. Except as provided in Section

5.7 and subject to Section 5.3(b), a Shipper's WQ shall vary with

Shipper's inventory level in its NSS account as follows:

 

(a) When Shipper's inventory level in its storage

account under the NSS Agreement exceeds fifty percent (50%) of its

MSV under the NSS Agreement, its WQ shall equal one hundred percent

(100%) of its MDQ; and

 

(b) When Shipper's inventory level in its storage account

under the NSS Agreement is equal to or less than fifty percent (50%)

of its MSV under the NSS Agreement, its WQ shall equal the lesser of

seventy percent (70%) of its MDQ or the volume of gas remaining in

storage for its account under the NSS Agreement.

 

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

entitled to have in storage under an NSS Agreement on a firm basis.

A Shipper's MSV equals its MDQ under the NSS Agreement multiplied by

seventy-five (75). If Shipper exceeds its MSV, Overrun Charges shall

apply as set out in Section 12 of the General Terms and Conditions.

In no event will a Shipper be allowed to withdraw more gas than it

has in storage in the aggregate; i.e., Shipper may not create a

negative storage inventory.
