5.7 Delivery Codes (Continued)


(c) Where an OPASA has been executed by a DP Operator, any other

Shipper may request service to the Delivery Points included in

that OPASA and use the D-Code arrangement described here,

provided that all the other conditions of this Section 5.7

have been met. Delivery meters identified in an OPASA may be

grouped into multi-meter D-Codes; however, the use of multi-

meter D-Codes may not adversely affect the firm rights of

other Shippers or firm service reliability.

Operators based on the following criteria:

A. Multi-meter D-Codes must have a similar operational

impact on Transporter's system;

B. Multi-meter D-Codes may not traverse a persistent

system constraint point; and

C. No Shipper or other Interconnecting Party shall be

disadvantaged as a result of a multi-meter D-Code.

D. Multi-meter D-Code locations must be operated by

the same party.


(ii) Transporter shall grant requests for multi-meter D-Codes

in a not unduly discriminatory manner.


(d) The OPASA identified in Section 5.7(a) shall identify an MDO

and an MHO at each delivery meter aggregated in the OPASA

providing service to that DP Operator and such other

conditions as necessary to ensure the reliability of firm

service to all shippers.


(i) The MDO and the MHO for a Delivery Point shall not

exceed the meter capacity at that point or the upstream

capacity available on a firm basis to serve that DP



(ii) Operators may utilize different delivery meters within

their designated D-Code; however, Transporter shall have

no obligation to provide service above the MDO or MHO at

any individual meter or the applicable MDQ for that D-
