GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
23. NEGOTIATED RATES (Continued)
23.5 Transportation Service Agreements Subject to the Right of First
Refusal. The right of first refusal provided with respect to certain
Shipper's firm service agreements, as described in Section 7 of the General
Terms and Conditions, shall not apply to firm service agreements with
negotiated rates, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by TransColorado.
23.6 Capacity Release. TransColorado and Shipper may, in connection
with their agreement to a Negotiated Rate under a firm transportation rate
schedule, agree upon payment obligations and crediting mechanisms in the event
of a capacity release that vary from or are in addition to those set forth in
Section 6 of this Tariff. This provision does not allow TransColorado and
Shipper to negotiate the terms and conditions of service.
23.7 Capacity Scheduling. For purposes of allocating capacity under
Section 8 of these General Terms and Conditions, a Shipper paying a negotiated
rate that exceeds the maximum rate for that service will be considered to have
paid the maximum rate for such service.
23.8 Accounting for Costs and Revenues. Allocation of costs to, and
recording of revenues from service at negotiated rates(s) or rate formula(s)
will follow TransColorado's normal practices associated with transportation
services provided under this tariff. If TransColorado institutes any revenue
tracker or other device to flow through to its shippers the impact of
interruptible or other transportation transactions, the treatment of such
tracker of revenues from nonconforming negotiated rate(s) or rate formula(s)
shall be specified in the applicable tariff provision.
23.9 Section 4(e) Rate Case Tracking. TransColorado will separately
record the volume transported, billing determinants, rate components,
surcharges and the revenue associated with its negotiated-rate transactions so
that this information can be separately identified, and separately totaled as
part of Statements G, I, and J in any applicable rate case filing under
Section 4(e) of the Natural Gas Act,15 U.S.C. & Section 717(c).
TransColorado's recovery of surcharges, such as ACA and GRI, will comport with
23.10 Rate Treatment. TransColorado shall have the right to seek in
future general rate proceedings discount-type adjustments in the design of
its rates related to negotiated-rate agreements that were converted from pre-
existing discount adjustments to negotiated-rate agreements, provided
