GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

16. DETERMINATION OF RECEIPTS AND DELIVERIES

 

16.1 In the event that Gas is scheduled for any Gas Day to be received

or delivered by Steckman Ridge in a commingled stream at Point(s)

of Receipt or Point(s) of Delivery other than those covered by an

Operational Balancing Agreement on Steckman Ridge's system for the

account of one or more Customers, Steckman Ridge shall: (a)

allocate quantities received or delivered based on predetermined

allocation methodologies ("PDA") as specified in Section 16.2

below, or (b) in the event that the allocation information as

specified in Section 16.2 is not provided or is not in full

compliance with the provisions of Section 16.2, Steckman Ridge

shall allocate actual quantities as specified in Section 16.3

below for Point(s) of Receipt and Point(s) of Delivery.

 

16.2 Pre-Determined Allocation ("PDA"). Steckman Ridge shall allocate

for each Gas Day actual Gas quantities received or delivered by

Steckman Ridge among all scheduled quantities based on the PDA

submitted to Steckman Ridge before the end of such Gas Day by

Customer or Customer's agent or the upstream or downstream party

responsible for custody transfer (hereinafter called "Submitting

Entity"); however, a PDA is not required for any location that is

covered by an Operational Balancing Agreement between Steckman

Ridge and the operator of the location. Customer shall submit

such PDA to Steckman Ridge via the LINK® System, unless otherwise

agreed to by Steckman Ridge and Customer. Parties may agree upon

one of the following allocation methodologies: ranked, pro rata,

percentage, swing and Operator provided value. Steckman Ridge

will accept the PDA if operationally or administratively feasible.

Steckman Ridge shall accept Submitting Entity's PDA when such PDA

provides for allocation of Gas quantities among Customer'(s)

scheduled quantities at such Point(s) of Receipt or Point(s) of

Delivery (hereinafter called "Allocated Entity"). Any PDA

submitted shall be effective for the term specified in such PDA,

provided that such term may not cover a period of less than one

Gas Day or longer than the nomination period.

 

16.3 In the event that an allocation is not provided in accordance with

Section 16.2 herein for any given Point of Receipt or Point of

Delivery, or if an allocation is provided but is not in full

compliance with the provisions specified in Section 16.2 herein,

Steckman Ridge shall allocate the actual quantities received at

such Point of Receipt or delivered at such Point of Delivery among

the Allocated Entities not subject to an allocation based upon the

ratio that each scheduled quantity not subject to an allocation

bears to the total scheduled quantities not subject to an

allocation, and such ratio shall be applied to unallocated actual

quantities after allocating actual quantities in accordance with

an allocation submitted in full compliance with the provisions

specified in Section 16.2 herein.

 

16.4 Any allocation submitted in accordance with the provisions

specified in this Section 16 shall be binding as to Steckman Ridge

and as to each and every Allocated Entity at such Point(s) of

Receipt or Point(s) of Delivery on such Gas Day. Steckman Ridge

shall not be liable to any Customer or third party as a result of

Steckman Ridge's reliance on any allocation from Submitting Entity

in accordance with the provisions specified in this Section 16.
