RATE SCHEDULE EFBH
Enhanced Firm Backhaul Transportation Service
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.
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.
