GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

21. GAS RESEARCH INSTITUTE (GRI) SURCHARGE PROVISION

 

21.2 Basis of the GRI Surcharge

 

Transporter's Rate Schedules shall include an increment for GRI

Surcharges for RD&D. Such GRI Surcharges shall be those increments,

adjusted to Transporter's measurement basis (dekatherm), which

has been approved by Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Orders

approving GRI's RD&D expenditures. The GRI Surcharges shall be

reflected on the currently effective Rate Sheets of this FERC Gas

Tariff.

 

21.3 Filing Procedure

 

The initial GRI Surcharges or any subsequent changes in such surcharges

shall be filed by Transporter at least thirty (30) days prior to the

proposed effective date.

 

The proposed effective date of filings pursuant to this subsection shall

be the effective date prescribed by the Federal Energy Regulatory

Commission. Any such filing shall not become effective unless it becomes effective

without suspension or refund obligation.

 

21.4 Voluntary Contribution Mechanism.

 

Shippers may voluntarily choose to contribute to GRI programs through a

"check-the-box" mechanism on Shipper invoices. The "check-the-box" mechanism will

permit shippers to specify the level of contribution and the project(s) or project

area(s) to be funded at the time of the Shipper's contribution payment.

Transporter shall serve as voluntary collection agent for such collections and

amounts collected pursuant to the "check-the-box" mechanism will not be considered

part of pipeline rates.
