RATE SCHEDULE ITS
Interruptible Transportation Service
3. TRANSPORTATION SERVICE PROVIDED
(a) In accordance with the further provisions of this Rate Schedule, Operator shall
receive scheduled quantities of Natural Gas from or on behalf of Buyer at Buyer's
Receipt Points and shall deliver thermally equivalent scheduled quantities, less
quantities for Operator's fuel use, losses and unaccounted purposes (herein referred
to as "Retainage"), to or for Buyer at Buyer's Delivery Points. Service provided
under this Rate Schedule shall be subject to interruption at any time or as required
to provide service to customers under any firm rate schedule.
(b) Operator's maximum obligation to receive Natural Gas for transportation service on
any date for Buyer shall be limited to the lesser of (i) Buyer's ITQ plus Retainage,
or (ii) Buyer's Scheduled Daily Receipt Quantity. Operator's maximum obligation to
deliver Natural Gas on any day for Buyer under this Rate Schedule shall be the lesser
of (i) Buyer's ITQ, or (ii) Buyer's Scheduled Daily Delivery Quantity, or (iii) the
quantity of Natural Gas Operator receives for Buyer less Retainage.
(c) Buyer shall not be permitted to increase its existing flowing quantities under this
Rate Schedule, regardless of the Transportation Quantity set forth in Buyer's ITS
Service Agreement, if such increase would cause a reduction of existing quantities
flowing on Operator's system under any other Service Agreement of equal or higher
priority. For purposes of making this determination with regard to requests for
increased flowing quantities as of the first Day of a Month, the existing quantities
flowing on Operator's system shall be deemed to be those quantities flowing on the
fifth business day preceding the first Day of that Month. A scheduled temporary
reduction in the quantities being transported, if requested by Buyer and approved by
Operator, shall not reduce the level of Buyer's existing quantities flowing on
Operator's system for purposes of this paragraph.
(d) Service rights under an ITS Service Agreement may not be released and assigned.
