5.6 Pressure Commitment. If mutually agreed upon in the TSA or

Operator agreement, Transporter may commit to maximum and minimum

receipt and delivery pressure levels to Shippers on a not unduly

discriminatory basis, and where necessary, upon specified

conditions, to ensure that such commitments do not have any adverse

effects on Transporter's system. If such commitment involves

service under Rate Schedules FT-H or NNTH the agreed upon pressure

commitment shall be consistent with the provisions of the rate

schedule. Such conditions may include quantity limitations or

other operational requirements to ensure the quality of service.

Transporter will post on its EBB agreed-upon maximum and minimum

receipt and delivery pressure commitments and any applicable

operating conditions. Transporter will not agree to a maximum or

minimum receipt or delivery pressure that will render it unable to

meet its existing firm obligations and, upon request, will provide

a written explanation to the Shipper explaining the operational

basis for rejecting any request for a maximum or minimum pressure.


5.7 Delivery Codes

(a) Scheduling and contracting will be conducted at the meter

level for all TSAs except where there exists an effective

Operator Point Aggregation Service Agreement ("OPASA") with

the DP Operator under Rate Schedule OPAS.


(b) Should a Shipper elect to contract and schedule using the D-

Code arrangement described in this Section 5.7, the Shipper's

TSA shall list the MDQs for the individual meters aggregated

into the D-Code arrangement. The contracted maximum delivery

meter quantity, as defined in the Shipper's TSA, will be

termed the meter "CMQ".


(i) The CMQ identifies the fully contracted MDQ level below

which the related MDOs may not be reduced.


(ii) The sum of the individual meter CMQs will be equal to

the D-Code MDQ.


(iii) Physical path rights pursuant to Section 8.1 of this

Tariff are not provided for by CMQs.


(iv) Upon termination of an OPASA, the D-Code MDQ will no

longer be applicable. In that event, the meter CMQ will

be deemed to be the MDQ for each meter and Transporter

will revise the TSA accordingly.
