18.4 Operational Feasibility Analysis. Segmentation requests that

satisfy Section 18.3 shall be evaluated for operational

feasibility using the following criteria:


(a) Pipeline’s obligations and ability to provide services under

its firm service rate schedules;


(b) Pipeline’s ability to sell firm capacity;


(c) The impact on the thermal content and interchangeability

characteristics of the gas on Pipeline’s system;

18.5 Segmentation Transactions.


(a) Unless a Segment Receipt or Delivery Point is a primary

point, the Segment Receipt or Delivery Point is a Secondary

Receipt or Delivery Point. A new segmentation request must

be submitted if a Primary Receipt or Delivery Point

associated with a segmentation transaction is changed under

GT&Cs Section 2.4.


(b) Subject to the provisions of this Tariff, including but not

limited to, the provisions of this Section 18, a Shipper may

segment in a manner such that capacity in the direction of

the Primary Path and capacity in the opposite direction of

the Primary Path, each within the applicable Line Path

Quantity, are used to make deliveries to the same Delivery

Point at the same time. Pipeline shall not be obligated to

accept nominations or releases of capacity for any purported

Primary Path Segment or combination of Primary Path Segments

that would result in an impermissible overlap of capacity or

otherwise result in the use of line capacity greater than

Shipper’s Line Path Quantity.


18.6 Suspension of Segmentation Transactions. After approval by

Pipeline, a segmentation transaction will be suspended based upon

a change in the operational feasibility of such transaction under

the criteria in Section 18.4. Except for a suspension required

by an OFO, Pipeline will provide Shipper at least 10 days notice

of any suspension of segmentation.


18.7 Segmentation Scheduling Priorities. Pipeline will schedule

segmentation nominations according to the procedures and

priorities set forth in GT&Cs Section 12.
