GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

23. FUEL, COMPANY-USE, AND LOST AND UNACCOUNTED FOR GAS

 

 

23.1 Transporter's rates set forth on Sheet Nos. 6 and 7 are

exclusive of Compressor Fuel and Other Gas for Transporter's

Use, which shippers will cause to be furnished to Transporter as

set forth in Section 23.

 

23.2 Shippers subject to the Compressor Fuel Factor, as described in

Subsection 23.3, will cause Compressor Fuel to be furnished in-

kind each day by applying a fuel reimbursement factor to

nominations at Point(s) of Receipt, as provided in NAESB

Standard 1.3.16. The initial Compressor Fuel Factor shall be

0.21 percent. Thereafter, the Compressor Fuel Factor will be

determined monthly as follows: the historical fuel usage at the

Transporter's Oakfield Compressor Station will be adjusted for

known and expected operational changes to determine projected

fuel usage for the month in which the factor is to be effective.

The sum of the projected fuel usage and any required true-up

adjustment will be divided by projected receipt quantities

subject to the Compressor Fuel Factor, as described in Section

23.3. The true-up adjustment will reflect (a) the difference

between total fuel used at the Oakfield Compressor Station and

net fuel reimbursed two months earlier, and (b) any prior period

adjustments to total fuel used and net fuel reimbursed. If, as

a result of a true-up adjustment, this calculation results in a

negative Compressor Fuel Factor, the applicable Compressor Fuel

Factor for such Month shall be zero percent, and the negative

balance shall be carried over to the next Month. Transporter

shall report the Compressor Fuel Factor applicable during a

given Month on its website at least seven calendar days prior to

the beginning of that Month.

 

23.3 The Compressor Fuel Factor shall be applicable only to

(a)forward-haul shippers under Rate Schedule FT with Primary

Point(s) of Delivery located on the Empire Connector,

(b) forward-haul shippers under Rate Schedule FT with service

agreements for Incremental Capacity on the Original Empire

Pipeline, as defined at Section 1.23 of these General Terms and

conditions, and (c) forward-haul shippers under Rate Schedule IT

with respect to quantities scheduled for delivery at Point(s) of

Delivery located on the Empire Connector.
