3.16 Procedures for Termination of a Volumetric Portion of Firm Service Agreements

 

(A) Subject to all provisions of this Section 3.16, this Section 3.16 provides an

option for customers to terminate a volumetric portion of the MDQ under a

Customer's open-access Service Agreement in lieu of terminating the entire

agreement. Unless otherwise specified in the executed Service Agreement, this

Section 3.16 volumetric termination option applies only to executed firm open-

access service agreements requiring the payment of the maximum applicable tariff

rate and which has a primary term of: (i) at least twelve (12) months of

consecutive service; or (ii) more than one (1) year for service which is not

available for twelve (12) consecutive months.

 

(B) In the event that Customer elects to terminate, either at the end of the stated

primary term or any extension thereof, pursuant to the applicable terms and

notice requirements included in the service agreement, only a volumetric portion

of its MDQ included in such service agreement, then Customer’s prior written

notification to Pipeline of its intention to partially terminate such service

agreement must expressly state (i) the volumetric quantity of the MDQ Customer is

terminating; and (ii) the volumetric quantity of the MDQ Customer is retaining.

Any such volumetric termination shall reduce the MDDO and MDRO rights specified

in Customer's service agreement based on the ratio of the volumetric quantities

to be terminated and the MDQ in effect immediately prior to the termination,

effective on the date such reduction is effective.

 

(C) If Customer’s prior written notification to Pipeline to terminate a portion of

the volumetric quantity of the MDQ of Customer’s service agreement fails to meet

the requirements of Section 3.16 (B), Pipeline shall notify Customer within five

(5) business days of the insufficiency of such notice. If Customer does not

remedy the insufficiency identified by Pipeline within five (5) business days

from the date of Pipeline's insufficiency notice to Customer, then such prior

written notification to Pipeline to terminate a portion of the volumetric

quantity of the MDQ of Customer’s service agreement shall be void ab initio and

such service agreement shall continue in full force and effect as if Customer had

not provided any notice to Pipeline.

 

(D) To the extent that Customer delivers to Pipeline a valid notice pursuant to

Section 3.16 (B) above, Customer thereafter shall have no right of first refusal

pursuant to Section 3.13 of the General Terms and Conditions with respect to the

volumetric portion of the MDQ terminated pursuant to this Section 3.16. The

Customer will continue to have a right of first refusal for that volumetric

portion of the MDQ which was not terminated pursuant to this Section 3.16.
