6. STORAGE FIELD LOSSES

 

In the event of a loss of gas from one or more storage fields

utilized by Transporter resulting from force majeure, such loss

shall be allocated among Transporter and each Shipper receiving

service in proportion to the quantities of gas (excluding base gas)

of each in storage immediately prior thereto as reasonably

determined by Transporter, and if such extraordinary loss exceeds

the top gas balances of Transporter and all such Shippers, such

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 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 rules and peoples, civil disturbances, explosions, breakage or

accident to machinery or line 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 by unamortized as of the date upon which

this provision becomes effective, and to those incurred after that

date.
