2. ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS

 

 

2.1 Pipeline has established the LINK® Customer Interface System (hereinafter called the

LINK® System), for use by any LINK® System Subscriber. The LINK® System is an

interactive system pursuant to which Customers' Notices pursuant to Section 3.14 of the

General Terms and Conditions will be submitted electronically and, in addition, posted

electronically by the Customer. Certain other transactions, such as postings and bids,

pursuant to Section 2.3 herein will be electronically confirmed on the LINK® System as

they occur. Electronic communications may also be transmitted, where applicable, via

electronic data interchange, which will be available on a nondiscriminatory basis to

any party, provided such party has entered into an appropriate written agreement with

Pipeline. The LINK® System shall be available on a nondiscriminatory basis to any LINK®

System Subscriber provided that such entity has executed a LINK® System agreement, been

assigned a user identification and password and agreed to comply with the procedures

for access to the LINK® System and with the procedures for use of the LINK® System.

Such LINK® System agreement, which can be accessed via Pipeline's Web site, shall be in

the form contained in Pipeline's FERC Gas Tariff of which this Section 2 is a part.

There is no requirement that a LINK® System Subscriber be a Customer under any of

Pipeline's other Service Agreements. Pipeline reserves the right to provide

enhancements to the LINK® System at its sole discretion; provided however, all such

enhancements when fully operational shall be provided to all LINK® System Subscribers.

Pipeline will exercise due diligence to ensure the LINK® System operates correctly and

will provide timely and equal access to LINK® System manuals and to any information

available on the LINK® System.

 

2.2 The LINK® System provides on-line help, a search function that permits LINK® System

Subscriber to locate all information concerning a specific transaction, and menus that

permit a LINK® System Subscriber to separately access notices of available capacity,

each record in the transportation and storage request log, and standards of conduct

information. The LINK® System will permit a LINK® System Subscriber to electronically

download transactional file(s) from the LINK® System and to split extremely large

documents into smaller files prior to such download. Pipeline shall maintain and retain

daily back-up records of the information displayed on the LINK® System for three (3)

years and permit a LINK® System Subscriber to review those records. Completed

transactions will remain on the LINK® System for at least ninety (90) days after

completion and will then be archived. Archived information is available from Pipeline

within two (2) weeks of a Customer's request for such information. Information on the

most recent entries will appear ahead of older information.

 

2.3 A LINK® System Subscriber has the option to utilize the LINK® System for the purposes

of (a) requesting service, executing, tracking and amending service agreements under

Open-access transportation rate schedules and providing nominations, allocations and

viewing of operational imbalances under all rate schedules as a Customer of Pipeline

pursuant to the applicable rate schedule and the General Terms and Conditions; (b)

exercising its rights as a Customer of Pipeline pursuant to Section 3.13 of
