GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

(b) As set out in Sections 5.3 and 5.4, service at the

secondary Receipt and Delivery Points under any DSS, FRSS, FTS, FFTS

or FTS-G Agreement shall be provided to the extent capacity is

available at such points after all nominations for primary point

service under all of Natural's firm Agreements have been satisfied;

provided, however, that unless a capacity constraint exists at the

point (and such exception applies only to the extent of such point

constraint), a secondary point nomination at a point within a path

created by Shipper's primary points shall be treated the same as a

nomination by Shipper at a primary point. Special rules applicable

to storage points are set out at Section 5.6 of these General Terms

and Conditions.

 

(c) In scheduling service at secondary points, the

following rules shall apply:

 

(1) For a secondary point outside a path created

by Shipper's primary points, service at the point and service to or

from the point shall be scheduled before interruptible service but

shall be scheduled after nominations for primary point service. All

types of out-of-path secondary points shall be treated on the same

basis, including opposite leg rights and rights under the FTS-SW and

FFTS-SW service options. For nominated transportation service under

Rate Schedule DSS, all Receipt Points shall be deemed out-of-path

except those specifically identified in the DSS Agreement pursuant

to Rate Schedule DSS as being in-the-path.

 

(2) Service to or from such a secondary point

outside the path shall also be scheduled after secondary point

service within the path to the extent both services utilize the same

capacity. If a capacity constraint exists at the point, subsection

(d) shall govern.

 

(3) If capacity is available to schedule some but

not all service nominated to and from secondary points outside a

primary point path, capacity shall be allocated among secondary

points under all firm Agreements which are outside the path, pro

rata based on MDQ unless there is a point constraint, in which case

subsection (d) shall govern.

 

(4) Secondary point service shall not be subject

to allocation [except as set out in Section 5.2(a)] if no capacity

constraint exists at the point or on any segment to or from the

point.
