RATE SCHEDULE NSS
Charge is specified in the NSS Agreement or a separate discount
agreement or is assessed pursuant to Section 6.5 hereof, which lower
charge must be consistent with the minimum rate(s) specified in this
Tariff. By mutual agreement between Natural and Shipper which is
consistent with the pro forma Agreement set out in this Tariff,
discounts may be limited to specific volumes. The Reservation Charge
shall constitute the minimum bill under this Rate Schedule NSS.
Shipper shall be obligated to pay the Reservation Charge hereunder as
of the date NSS service commences. NSS service shall be deemed to
commence on the later of the date specified in the NSS Agreement or
the date Natural is able to render firm service hereunder to Shipper.
(b) Shipper shall provide gas in kind for the fuel
required to inject gas into storage and withdraw gas from storage
under this Rate Schedule NSS. Such charge shall equal the applicable
Storage Fuel Rate set out in this Tariff (stated as a percentage fuel
rate) multiplied by each Dth of gas injected under the NSS Agreement.
Upon the mutual agreement of Natural and Shipper, in lieu of Natural
retaining gas in kind, Shipper shall reimburse Natural for fuel at a
price established under Section 7.1 of the General Terms and
Conditions of this Tariff multiplied by the Storage Fuel Charge.
(c) Except as otherwise provided herein, Shipper shall
pay the Authorized Overrun Rate or the Unauthorized Overrun Rate, as
applicable, specified in Section 12 of the General Terms and
Conditions of this Tariff on the volume of any overrun of its firm
rights under Section 5 of this Rate Schedule NSS.
6.3 Shipper shall reimburse Natural within five (5) business
days after costs have been incurred by Natural for all fees required
by the Commission or any regulatory body including, but not limited
to, filing, reporting, and application fees to the extent such fees
are specifically related to service for that Shipper hereunder and are
not generally applicable fees (such as general rate case filing fees).
Any costs collected hereunder shall be excluded from Natural's cost of
service in determining generally applicable fees.
6.4 (a) Natural shall have the unilateral right to file
with any appropriate regulatory authority and make changes effective
in (1) the rates and charges applicable under this Rate Schedule NSS,
including both the level and design of such rates and charges; or (2)
the terms and conditions of this Rate Schedule NSS. Natural agrees
that Shipper may protest or contest the aforementioned filings, or may
seek authorization from duly constituted regulatory authorities for
such adjustment of Natural's existing FERC Gas Tariff as may be found
necessary to assure that its provisions are just and reasonable.
