RATE SCHEDULE EFBH

Enhanced Firm Backhaul Transportation Service

 

1. AVAILABILITY

 

This Rate Schedule is available for Enhanced Firm Backhaul transportation service by

Transwestern Pipeline Company (Transporter) for any Shipper:

 

A. When Shipper has entered into an EFBH Service Agreement in the form contained in

Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff, and

 

B. Where capacity is available on Transporter's system for such firm transportation

service. Service under this Rate Schedule shall be subject to operating conditions on

Transporter's pipeline and will not be made available if Transporter, in its sole

discretion, determines that such transportation is operationally infeasible or

otherwise not available.

 

2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE

 

Gas transported by Transporter for Shipper under this Rate Schedule shall be on a firm

basis. Transporter shall be obligated on any day to receive from Shipper for

transportation hereunder the quantity of gas made available by Shipper for transportation

from Primary Receipt Points, provided, however, that such quantity shall not exceed the

Maximum Daily Transportation Quantity (MAXDTQ) specified in the Service Agreement,

exclusive of transport fuel. Transporter may also receive from Shipper for transportation

hereunder the quantity of gas made available by Shipper for transportation from Alternate

Receipt Points, provided, however, that the sum of the quantity of gas made available by

Transporter for transportation from Primary and Alternate Receipt Points shall not exceed

the MAXDTQ specified in the Service Agreement, and subject to the provisions of Section 22

of the General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff. Transporter shall make available for

delivery to Shipper at the Primary Delivery Point(s) specified in the EFBH Service

Agreement, as may be amended upon mutual agreement from time to time, and subject to

operational considerations and the availability of capacity and any pending request for

capacity, or at Alternate Delivery Points on an interruptible basis, the same quantities

received as measured, less transport fuel, in accordance with Sections 4 and 22 of the

General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff.

 

2.1 Term

 

The period of time to be covered by the Service Agreement shall be determined by

agreement between the parties.

 

2.2 Minimum Flow Obligation

 

a. If Shipper has not nominated all or part of the MAXDTQ any day and if such lack

of nomination threatens Transporter's ability to provide nominated FTS-3 firm

services, Transporter shall issue an Operational Flow Order (OFO) requiring

Shipper to nominate, confirm, schedule, tender to Transporter and take delivery

of the amount of gas specified in the OFO, for the length of time specified in

the OFO and by the deadline stated in the OFO, and Shipper shall be obligated to

comply with such OFO.

 

b. If a Shipper fails to comply with the OFO, the Shipper shall be subject to a

penalty of $10.00 per Dth times the volume of gas by which the Shipper deviated

from the requirements of the OFO.

 

c. The OFO shall set forth a) the time and date of issuance, b) the actions the

Shipper is required to take, c) the time by which the Shipper must comply with

the OFO and d) quantity to be delivered.

 

2.3 Sale of Forward Haul Capacity

 

If Transporter sells firm transportation service on firm forward haul capacity

created by EFBH Service, such forward haul service shall be provided pursuant to Rate

Schedule FTS-3.
