6. STORAGE FIELD LOSSES (Cont'd.)

 

excess will be deemed to be from Transporter's base gas. Losses of gas

from storage fields utilized by Transporter that are not losses resulting

from force majeure, as defined below, will be deemed to be gas from

Transporter's top gas balance, and, to the extent such losses exceed

Transporter's top gas balance, such excess will be deemed to be from

Transporter's base gas. For purposes of this Section 6, a loss of gas

resulting from force majeure is a loss caused by any acts of God,

strikes, lockouts, acts of the public enemy, wars, blockades,

insurrections, riots, epidemics, landslides, lightning, earthquakes,

fires, storms, floods, washouts, arrests and restraints of rulers and

peoples, civil disturbances, explosions, breakage or accident to

machinery or lines of pipe, line freeze-ups, or similar causes.

 

Shipper is placed on notice that Transporter may recognize storage

gas losses for rate and accounting purposes. Such losses shall be valued

at the current replacement cost of gas. After accounting recognition of

any such loss, Transporter shall record and maintain a regulatory asset

account which shall be maintained until Transporter's next general rate

change filing under Section 4 of this Natural Gas Act. In any of

Transporter's general rate change filings, Transporter may propose to

amortize storage gas losses through its base rates. This provision shall

apply to storage gas losses incurred but unamortized as of the date upon

which this provision becomes effective, and to those incurred after that

date.

 

7. WITHDRAWALS UPON TERMINATION OF SERVICE

 

Not less than thirty (30) days prior to the termination of storage

service provided to any Shipper under this rate schedule, Transporter

will notify Shipper of Shipper's Storage Balance. If the Storage Balance

is positive, then the Shipper will withdraw such quantities within thirty

(30) days of the termination of the storage service. Transporter will

take title to all such gas not withdrawn without recourse on the thirty-

first day after the termination of the storage service. If the Storage

Balance is negative, then the Shipper will within thirty (30) days of the

end of the storage service deliver sufficient quantities of gas to make

up the negative Balance. If the Shipper does not deliver sufficient

quantities of gas within that thirty-day period, the Shipper shall pay

Transporter the Negative Imbalance Cash-Out Price, as set forth in

Section 14.10(a) of the General Terms and Conditions, for any remaining

negative imbalance.
