FORM OF SERVICE AGREEMENT
FOR RATE SCHEDULE MNOP
Date:__________________________, Contract No.__________________
This SERVICE AGREEMENT is entered into by and between Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline, L.L.C.,
("Pipeline") and _____________________________________ ("Customer").
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and of the mutual covenants herein contained,
the parties do agree as follows:
1. Pipeline shall deliver and Customer shall take and pay for service pursuant to the terms of
this Service Agreement and subject to Pipeline's Rate Schedule MNOP and the General Terms and
Conditions of Pipeline's Tariff, which are incorporated herein by reference and made a part
2. The Maximum Daily Transportation Quantity (MDTQ) and Maximum Annual Transportation Quantity
(MATQ) for service under this Service Agreement, any right to decrease the MDTQ or MATQ
during the term of this Service Agreement, and the days when Pipeline may interrupt service
under this Service Agreement are listed on Exhibit C attached hereto. The Point(s) of
Receipt and Point(s) of Delivery, respectively, are listed on Exhibits A and B attached
hereto. Exhibit(s) A, B, and C are incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof.
On any given Day, Pipeline shall not be obligated to, but may at its sole discretion, receive
at Point(s) of Receipt quantities of gas in excess of Pipeline's Maximum Daily Receipt
Obligation (MDRO), plus Fuel Retainage Quantity, but shall not receive in the aggregate at
all Points of Receipt on any Day a quantity of gas in excess of the applicable MDTQ, plus
Fuel Retainage Quantity. On any given Day, Pipeline shall not be obligated to, but may at
its sole discretion, deliver at any Point of Delivery quantities of gas in excess of
Pipeline's Maximum Daily Delivery Obligation (MDDO), but shall not deliver in the aggregate
at all Points of Delivery on any Day quantities of gas in excess of the applicable MDTQ.
3. This Service Agreement shall be effective on ___________ and shall continue for a term ending
on and including ___________ ("Primary Term") and shall continue to be effective from
______________ to ______________ thereafter (not less than year to year for the secondary
term for agreements with a Primary Term of more than 1 year) unless terminated by either
party upon prior written notice of at least _______[at least one (1) year for Long Term
Service Agreements; mutually agreeable for Short Term Service Agreements; with the exception
that, for Service Agreements with a primary term of exactly one (1) year, the notice must be
submitted within ten (10) Business Days of the beginning of the primary term of the Service
Agreement, and at least one (1) year for subsequent notices for such Service Agreement].
Upon termination, any portions of this Service Agreement necessary to correct or cash out
imbalances or to make payment under this Service Agreement as required by the GT&C will
survive the other parts of this Service Agreement until such time as such balancing or
payment has been accomplished. To the extent that Customer desires to terminate this Service
Agreement and Pipeline agrees to such termination, Pipeline will collect as part of the exit
fee all (or such lesser portion as Pipeline agrees to) of the capacity Reservation Charges
otherwise recoverable by Pipeline from Customer for the balance of the contractual term,
absent such early termination.
If this Service Agreement qualifies as a "ROFR Agreement" as defined in the GT&C of
Pipeline's FERC Gas Tariff, the provision of a termination notice by either Customer or
Pipeline, pursuant to this article 3, any reduction of the MDTQ and MATQ pursuant to Exhibit
C (but only for the quantity of the reduction) or the expiration of this Service Agreement by
its own terms triggers Customer's right of first refusal under Section 4.2 of the GT&C of
Pipeline's FERC Gas Tariff.
