18.1 Segmenting Capacity. Subject to this Tariff and to the

availability of capacity, and to the extent operationally

feasible, a firm Shipper may, pursuant to the provisions of this

Section 18, segment its Primary Path for its own use or for the

purpose of capacity release.


18.2 Requests for Segmentation. To segment capacity Shipper must

submit a Service Request specifying the desired Segment Receipt

Point(s) and Segment Delivery Point(s). Segmentation requests

shall be made in writing no less than five (5) Business Days prior

to the Gas Day on which Shipper desires such segmentation to be

effective; provided, however, Pipeline shall use reasonable

efforts to accommodate Shipper requests for segmentation made less

than five (5) Business Days before the desired effective date.

Upon approval, Shipper may implement the segmentation through

nomination or through the capacity release process, subject to

this Tariff and to the availability of capacity.


18.3 Prerequisites for Segmentation. To maintain the integrity and

reliability of Pipeline's operationally complex, reticulated

system, the following prerequisites for segmentation have been

established to ensure that segmentation is supported to the

greatest extent possible without detriment to, or degradation of,

any Shipper's firm service.


(a) The Segment Receipt Point(s) and Segment Delivery Point(s)

must be located at or between Shipper’s Primary Receipt

Point(s) and Primary Delivery Point(s).


(b) Segmentation is subject to the availability of capacity and

existing contractual obligations.


(c) Segmentation may not exceed the Line Path Quantity on any

Primary Path Segment.


(d) Segmentation is permitted in the direction of flow opposite

to the Primary Path; however, the quantities subject to a

request for flow opposite to the Primary Path shall be added

to any other segmentation activity on the same Primary Path

Segment when considering the Line Path Quantity limitation.
