16. ALLOCATION PROCEDURES

 

16.1 In the event that gas is scheduled for any day to be received

or delivered by Pipeline at Point(s) of Receipt or Point(s) of

Delivery on Pipeline's system for Customer, Pipeline shall

allocate quantities received or delivered as set forth in

Paragraph 16.2 and make such daily operational allocations

available within one (1) business day after the end of the

gas day. Allocated quantities and imbalances should be expressed

in the same units as the nominated quantities. In the

event that the allocation information

as specified in the provisions of Paragraph 16.2 is not

provided, the Pipeline shall allocate actual quantities as set

forth in the provisions of Paragraph 16.3.

 

16.2(a) Pipeline shall allocate on each day actual gas

quantities received or delivered by Pipeline among all

scheduled quantities. Such allocations shall be based on

1) the existance of an OBA at the affected point or

location;

or

2) in the absences of an OBA, such allocation shall be

based on the PDA(s) submitted to Pipeline during the

business day prior to such gas day by Customer,

Customer's agent or the Point Operator.

Such PDA(s) may be submitted to Pipeline in

writing or electronically. A PDA, whether

submitted by Customer, Customer's agent or the Point

shall set forth sufficient information to describe the

allocation priority for each Point of Receipt and Point

exceed scheduled quantities, and shall set forth sufficient

information to describe the allocation priority for each

Point of Receipt and Point of Delivery when actual

quantities received or delivered are less than scheduled

quantities. PDA's submitted to Pipeline shall be

acknowledged to transmitter within fifteen (15) minutes of

receipt.

 

(b) It shall be the obligation of Customer to ensure that

Customer's agent and/or the Point Operator comply with

the provisions of this Section 16. In the event that a

Point Operator is responsible for scheduling receipts or

deliveries at Point(s) of Receipt or Point(s) of

Delivery, Pipeline shall first rely on a PDA submitted

by Customer. In the event that Customer has designated

an agent for scheduling of receipts or deliveries, then
