6.6 Pooling - Transporter shall provide one or more pooling areas in

each of the production basins accessed by its system for purposes

of facilitating the aggregation and disaggregation of gas received

into its system within each such area. The process of aggregating

and disaggregating gas receipts shall be deemed pooling. Pooling

shall be subject to the following conditions:


(a) Transporter shall follow the priority rankings of poolers

while providing such poolers at least two opportunities to

make upstream transfers prior to gas being delivered to a

downstream TSA;


(b) Quantities transferred into each pooling account must equal

quantities transferred out of such account during each

scheduling cycle;


(c) Transporter shall not be obligated to schedule pooling

transactions involving more than ten layers of Pools; and


(d) In order to honor previously scheduled quantities for TSAs,

all pooling transactions must be reprocessed during each of

the scheduling cycles. This may change the quantities

reported on prior cycles.


(e) At a minimum, Transporter should be responsible for

accommodating Title Transfer Tracking ("TTT") services at

all points identified by Transporter as pooling points,

where TTT services are requested. In absence of existing

pooling points or in addition to existing pooling points

where access to TTT activity is not reasonably accessible

for supply receipt locations covered by an OBA, Transporter

should be responsible for accommodating TTT at no less than

one location. (NAESB Standard 1.3.64)


The Title Transfer Tracking services should be supported by

means of the nominations, quick responses and scheduled

quantities processes. At Transporter's election, the

confirmation process may also be utilized with Title

Transfer Tracking Service Providers within Transporter's

system. (NAESB Standard 1.3.65)
