13.2 Delivery Point Allocation:

 

(a) Use of PDAs: On a daily basis at each Delivery Point where a PDA applies,

COMPANY shall allocate the quantities of gas metered at the point among the

quantities of gas scheduled at the point for the account of its SHIPPERS

based on the Pro Rata PDA method unless another PDA method is provided by

the Point Operator for the party that owns or operates the downstream

facilities interconnecting with COMPANY'S facilities at each Delivery Point

(the "Delivery Point Operator"). The alternative PDA methodologies from

which the downstream Point Operator may choose include the Swing PDA, a

Ranked PDA, a Percentage PDA, or any other mutually agreeable allocation

methodology. A new allocation detail may be needed when a nomination

changes. The PDA shall be provided by the Delivery Point Operator on a

line item basis at the level of nomination detail provided by COMPANY for

confirmation. COMPANY shall then use the predetermined priority provided

by SHIPPER in its nomination for applying the PDA to the Package ID level

within the line item nomination level. SHIPPER agrees that COMPANY shall

have the right to rely conclusively on the PDA provided pursuant to this

Section 13.2 for the purposes of determining the daily quantities of gas

delivered by COMPANY for the account of SHIPPER at each Delivery Point.

However, anything else in this Section 13 to the contrary notwithstanding,

if the Delivery Point is covered by an Operational Balancing Agreement as

described in Section 13.3 of these GT&C, allocation of the delivery of gas

shall be governed by the Operational Balancing Agreement before any

allocation is made under the PDA.

 

(b) PDA Deadlines: Each PDA that is to apply to a Delivery Point must be

submitted to COMPANY, through SoNet Premier, during the confirmation of

that Day's nominations or prior to 5:00 p.m. CCT on the Day following the

Gas Day. COMPANY shall extend the PDA deadline to no later than four (4)

Business Days following the end of the month in which the gas was

transported in the event all of the affected parties, including the Point

Operator and all shippers, send notice to COMPANY in writing that they are

in agreement on the PDA to be used and have no objection to a change in the

PDA. If there are no additions in nominations by a SHIPPER at a Delivery

Point or other changes, the current PDA will stay in effect as submitted

until it is changed pursuant to the foregoing procedures. If SHIPPER adds

a nomination at a Delivery Point, then SHIPPER must provide, or cause to be

provided, as set forth above a PDA at the Delivery Point which recognizes

SHIPPER'S nomination.

 

(c) Pipeline Interconnects: As provided by Section 13.3 of these General Terms

and Conditions, all pipeline interconnections should be covered by an

Operational Balancing Agreement. If for any reason, no Operational

Balancing Agreement is in effect for a given pipeline interconnection, a

PDA statement for Delivery Points interconnecting with third-party

pipelines shall be provided by the Point Operator for the third-party

pipeline and shall be one of the PDA methods enumerated in Section 13.2(a)

above or Section 13.3 below. If there is a conflict between the foregoing

methodologies and the third-party pipeline's provisions in its FERC Gas

Tariff governing the allocations of gas, the pipeline company and COMPANY

shall mutually agree on the PDA methodology to be used.
