RATE SCHEDULE IBS
INTERRUPTIBLE BALANCING SERVICE
(a) This Rate Schedule IBS is available to any entity
(hereinafter called Shipper) which: (i) submits to Midcontinent
Express Pipeline LLC (hereinafter called MEP) a valid request as
defined in Section 3 hereof; (ii) executes an Interruptible Balancing
Service Agreement (IBS Agreement) with MEP applicable to service
under this Rate Schedule IBS; and (iii) meets the qualifications set
out in subsection (b) of this Section.
(b) To be eligible for service under this Rate Schedule IBS,
the Shipper must identify the service under its IBS Agreement as
being for one specified end-use facility for each IBS Agreement;
except that more than one facility may be specified to the extent
limited aggregation of end-use facilities and points is permitted
under Section 7(c) of this Rate Schedule IBS. Such end-use facilities
need not be directly connected to MEP's system, but the conditions
specified in Section 3.2(c) of this Rate Schedule IBS must be met. To
be eligible for service hereunder, the Shipper must have and maintain
in effect an FTS or ITS Agreement to which the IBS Agreement is
linked, consistent with Section 3.2(a) of this Rate Schedule IBS. The
IBS Agreement must also specify a single Delivery Point for each end-
use facility; provided, however, that limited aggregation of end-use
facilities and points is permitted under Section 7(c) of this Rate
Schedule IBS. The Delivery Point may be any primary or secondary
Delivery Point available under the linked transportation Agreement
except for any Point on Leased Capacity; provided that the Delivery
Point must be consistent with the location of the end-use facility.
An IBS Agreement may only be linked to one transportation Agreement.
A transportation Agreement may have more than one IBS Agreement
linked to it, provided that the other requirements of this Rate
Schedule IBS are satisfied.
(c) The form of the IBS Agreement is contained in this
Tariff. There is no limitation on the number of IBS Agreements any
one Shipper may have.
