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.
