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.
