3. RATES (Cont'd.)

 

Sheet No. 7. Transporter and Shipper may agree in such amendment

to one or more of the following provisions:

 

(a) that a specified discounted rate will apply only to specified

quantities under the agreement;

 

(b) that a specified discounted rate will apply only if specified

quantities are achieved or only with respect to quantities

below a specified level;

 

(c) that a specified discounted rate will apply only during

specified periods of the year or for a specifically defined

period;

 

(d) that a specified discounted rate will apply only to specified

points, combinations of points, zones or other defined

geographical area(s);

 

(e) and/or that a specified discounted rate will apply in a

specified relationship to the quantities actually transported

[i.e., that the commodity charge will be adjusted in a

specified relationship to quantities actually transported];

 

(f) that a specified discounted rate is based on published index

prices for specific receipt and/or delivery points or other

agreed upon published pricing reference points (such discounted

rate may be based upon the differential between published

prices or arrived at by formula). Any agreement containing

such discounted rate shall specify the rate component(s) to be

discounted. Furthermore, such discount shall not change the

underlying rate design to include any minimum bill or minimum

take provision that has the effect of guaranteeing revenue.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no discount agreement may provide

that an agreed discount as to a defined quantity level will be

invalidated if the Shipper transports an incremental quantity above

the agreed level. Transporter and Shipper may agree to a discounted

rate provided that the discounted rate is between the applicable

maximum and minimum rates.

 

A provision entered into pursuant to this provision shall not

constitute a material deviation from the applicable form of service

agreement.
