GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

(2) In the case of a segmented release, if nominations

result in an overlapping path, through nomination at out-of-path

secondary points, overrun charges for volumes in excess of the MDQ under

the original Agreement in the area of overlap shall be applied as

follows: (i) if a Shipper is nominating or flowing within the primary

path under its segment, overrun shall not apply to that segment so long

as such Shipper is within its MDQ on that segment and any overrun shall

be assigned to the segment on which Shipper is nominating and flowing

outside its path; (ii) if a Shipper is nominating or flowing in excess of

its MDQ on a segment under the segmented release, the Shipper shall be

assessed overrun based on the volume in excess of its MDQ; and (iii)

where the Shipper on each segment is within its MDQ, but is nominating on

a secondary out-of-path basis so as to create an overlap in nominated

paths, and aggregate nomination by the Releasing and Replacement Shipper

in the area of overlap are in excess of the original contract MDQ, then

except as provided in (i) and (ii), overrun charges will be assessed to

the Releasing Shipper unless the release specifies that such overrun

Amarillo Mainline Receipt Zone or the Gulf Coast Mainline Receipt Zone,

no opposite leg rights will exist.

 

(ii) Where the primary path is segmented in the

Midcontinent Zone, the downstream segment would have out-of-path

secondary Receipt Point rights in the Gulf Coast Mainline and where the

primary path is segmented in the Texok Receipt Zone, the downstream
