GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

38. PRESSURE

 

(a) Transporter shall deliver gas at each delivery point to or for

the account of Shipper at the pressure which shall be available

from time to time in Transporter's pipeline, less any pressure

reduction that may occur through any measurement, flow control,

regulation or other appurtenant facilities that are owned by

Transporter; provided, however, that Transporter and a firm

Shipper may mutually agree to a specific minimum delivery

pressure for a stated period at any delivery point or points

which Transporter shall agree to meet or exceed, and where

necessary, upon specified conditions to ensure that such

agreement does not have any adverse effects on Transporter's

system. Transporter's obligation to meet or exceed this minimum

delivery pressure shall be contingent upon total deliveries at

the particular delivery point or points not exceeding the sum of

the maximum quantities, applicable to such point, of all Shippers

with firm service agreements specifying such point as a primary

delivery point. Transporter may meet or exceed the specified

minimum delivery pressure if deliveries at the delivery point or

points are in excess of such sum, but shall have no obligation to

do so. If Transporter and Shipper agree to a specific minimum

delivery pressure obligation for a stated period, the pressure

obligation and any conditions will be specified in the service

agreement in the blank spaces provided in the Form of Service

Agreement. Transporter may at any time, and from time to time,

exceed a minimum delivery pressure obligation it has made to a

Shipper. Transporter also may operate its facilities at less than

the minimum delivery pressure obligation made to a Shipper when

maintenance of the minimum pressure is not necessary to effect

delivery of scheduled quantities up to the maximum quantity

specified in Shipper's service agreement. If Transporter and a

Shipper are unable to mutually agree upon a minimum pressure

commitment, Transporter will, upon request from that Shipper,

provide a written explanation concerning the operational reasons

for the denial.

 

(b) Shipper shall deliver gas or cause gas to be delivered to

Transporter at the receipt point(s) at a pressure sufficient to

allow the gas to enter Transporter's pipeline, as such pressure

shall vary from time to time, provided, however, that such

pressure shall not exceed any maximum pressure determined by

Transporter from time to time. Transporter shall not be required

to compress into its pipeline gas transported under any rate
