3. PRIORITY OF SERVICE AND ALLOCATION OF CAPACITY (Continued)

 

Transporter shall then allocate any capacity remaining in

sequence starting with the rate that Shipper offers and

agrees to pay which is most proximate to the maximum rate

and then by the earliest date of request for such service;

provided, however, that at the beginning of each month

priority will be given to Shippers within each rate level

that continue to transport up to the average daily

quantities of gas within MDTQ to the same Delivery

Point(s) as were scheduled and confirmed in the

immediately preceding month. Average daily quantities of

gas shall be determined by taking the total quantity of

gas scheduled and confirmed at the Delivery Point(s) in

the preceding month divided by the total number of days in

such month. If curtailment is necessary within this

category, Transporter shall first curtail the Shipper who

at the time notice was given was being charged a rate that

is less than the maximum rate of Transporter then in

effect under this tariff in sequence starting with the

rate least proximate to the maximum rate and then with the

Shipper who has the most recent valid request.

 

Among those Shippers deemed to have the same request date,

Transporter shall allocate capacity on a prorata basis

within each rate level based upon confirmed nominations

within MDTQ; and, if curtailment is necessary among those

Shippers deemed to have the same request date, Transporter

shall curtail such Shippers within each rate level prorata

based on scheduled quantities.

 

3.3 Transporter shall redetermine the priority of each Shipper

under Section 3.2 above and reallocate capacity hereunder on a

periodic basis as is necessary for Transporter to recognize the

priority of new Shippers or any changes in the priorities of existing

Shippers, to assure service to its firm sales and firm transportation

customers, and to conform to the operational requirements of its

system.

 

3.4 Transporter and Shipper may add or delete Delivery or

Receipt Points to the Transportation Service Agreement from time to

time by mutual agreement subject to the conditions contained in

Section 12 of the Transportation General Terms and Conditions.
