16. CAPACITY ALLOCATION AND CURTAILMENT

 

16.1 If, (a) on any day, Transporter determines that the capacity

of its system, or any portion thereof, including the points

at which gas is tendered for transportation, is insufficient

to serve all transportation requirements that are otherwise

scheduled to receive service on any such day, or (b) subject

to the provisions of Section 6 of Rate Schedule FTS or

Section 5 of Rate Schedule ITS, Transporter receives in a

given day nominations at any Point(s) of Receipt or Delivery

in excess of the capacity available at such Point(s) of

Receipt or Delivery during that month, capacity that

requires allocation shall be allocated in the following

sequence:

 

a. to all Firm Shippers on a pro rata basis;

 

b. to all Interruptible Shippers paying the Maximum ITS

rate, on a first-come, first-served basis upon date

Transporter receives a valid transportation service

request;

 

c. to the extent that two or more Interruptible Shippers

having the same first-come, first-served priority are

paying the maximum rate under Rate Schedule ITS, on a

pro rata basis; and

 

d. to the extent that Interruptible Shippers are not

paying the maximum rate under Rate Schedule ITS, on the

basis of price; provided, however, that if two or more

Interruptible Shippers are paying the same price that

is not the maximum rate under Rate Schedule ITS, on a

pro rata basis.

 

However, with respect to the above capacity allocation

methodology, for shippers paying the same rate, a higher

priority interruptible agreement shall not be allowed to

bump volumes which were flowing in the prior month under a

lower priority interruptible agreement.

 

16.2 For valid nominations for interruptible transportation

service activity which is to commence on any day of any

calendar month other than the first day, a higher priority

interruptible agreement shall not be allowed to bump volumes

which are flowing under a lower priority agreement

regardless of the rate which is applicable to such service.
