RATE SCHEDULE PALS

------------------

 

5.4 (a) Unless otherwise provided by contract, MEP shall

have the unilateral right to file with any appropriate regulatory

authority and make changes effective in: (1) the rates and charges

applicable under this Rate Schedule PALS, including both the level

and design of such rates and charges; or (2) the terms and conditions

of this Rate Schedule PALS, including the applicable General Terms

and Conditions.

 

(b) If, at any time and from time to time, the FERC

or any other governmental authority having jurisdiction in the

premises allows or permits MEP to collect, or to negotiate to

collect, a higher rate for the service hereunder, the rate shall be

increased to the highest such rate unless the PALS Agreement or a

separate discount, Negotiated Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula

agreement provides that the rate established in such an agreement

shall not be subject to such a modification or increase. Should

additional documentation be required in order for MEP to collect such

highest rate, Shipper shall execute or provide such documentation

within fifteen (15) days after a written request by MEP. If, at any

time and from time to time, the FERC or any other governmental

authority having jurisdiction in the premises requires MEP to charge

a lower rate for transportation service hereunder, the rate shall be

decreased to such reduced rate except as otherwise agreed under

Section 5.1(b) of this Rate Schedule and Section 30 of the General

Terms and Conditions of this Tariff (as to Negotiated Rate or

Negotiated Rate Formula agreements).

 

5.5 MEP may, consistent with any provisions on discounting

in the PALS Agreement or in a separate discount, Negotiated Rate or

Negotiated Rate Formula agreement, charge any individual Shipper for

service under this Rate Schedule PALS a rate which is lower than the

applicable maximum rate set forth in this Tariff; provided, however,

that such rate may not be less than the applicable minimum rate for

service under Rate Schedule PALS set forth in this Tariff except as

otherwise provided in Section 30 of the General Terms and Conditions

of this Tariff (as to Negotiated Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula

agreements). MEP shall file with the Commission any and all reports

as required by the Commission's Regulations with respect to the

institution or discontinuance of any discount.
