GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula) shall be afforded highest priority

even if a Shipper which has agreed to a Negotiated Rate or Negotiated

Rate Formula is paying a higher unit rate. In the event there is

insufficient capacity to schedule all Rate Schedules ITS, PALS and

IBS services, and authorized overrun services, for which the same

rate is to be paid, MEP shall allocate the available capacity pro

rata based on the confirmed nominated volume.

 

(2) In interrupting or curtailing service under

Rate Schedules ITS, PALS and IBS or firm transportation authorized

overrun due to lack of capacity, MEP shall [except as otherwise

provided in subsection (c) below] interrupt such service based on the

rate being paid, from lowest to highest unit rate, with service for

which the lowest unit rate being paid is interrupted first. Any

Shipper paying the maximum rate applicable to its service (or revenue

equal to or greater than the applicable maximum rate pursuant to a

Negotiated Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula) shall be afforded highest

priority even if a Shipper which has agreed to a Negotiated Rate or

Negotiated Rate Formula is paying a higher unit rate. In the event

there is insufficient capacity to continue all Rate Schedule ITS,

PALS and IBS service for which the same rate is being paid, MEP shall

allocate the available capacity pro rata based on the confirmed

nomination volume.

 

(c) This subsection discusses Rate Schedules IBS and

PALS curtailment rules for Rate Schedules IBS and PALS:

 

(1) Service under Rate Schedule IBS shall be

scheduled and curtailed based on MEP's System operational capability,

on resources provided by Third Party Imbalance Management Agreements

and on offsetting Access Requests on the relevant portions of MEP's

System. Service shall not be provided under Rate Schedule IBS, and

service pursuant to a confirmed Access Request under Rate Schedule

IBS shall be interrupted, if such service would be detrimental to

MEP's ability to provide primary firm service or secondary point

service.

 

(2) If providing service under any IBS Agreement

would have an adverse effect on providing any other interruptible

service, the IBS Agreement shall, for scheduling and balancing

purposes, be assigned the priority of the transportation Agreement to

which the IBS Agreement is linked, with overrun volumes being

assigned priority on the same basis as overrun volumes under the

linked transportation Agreement.
