8.1 FIRM SERVICE (Continued)
(e) Segmentation and Pathing (Continued)
(i) Transporter will use a "Walk the Pipe" process to determine
a Shipper's priority on all Segments of a Shipper's
nominated Flow Path. The nominated Flow Path originates at
the nominated Receipt Point and ends at the nominated
Delivery Point. The Shipper's priority on each Segment of
the nominated receipt to delivery Flow Path will be
determined by the Shipper's use of its primary point(s) and
Primary Receipt-to-Delivery Flow Path(s) and its use of
alternate point(s) and alternate paths.
(A) A Shipper using its primary points and Primary Receipt-
to-Delivery Flow Path will be assigned a primary
priority on each Segment of the Flow Path from the
primary receipt point to the primary delivery point.
1. When primary points are used, such primary points
have priority over points assigned a Flow Point
Secondary, First Alternate or Second Alternate
scheduling priority, in that order.
2. A Shipper's Primary Receipt-to-Delivery Flow Path
rights have priority over Flow Paths assigned a
Flow Path Secondary, First Alternate or Second
Alternate scheduling priority, in that order.
(B) Point rights have priority over path rights.
(C) A Shipper may use its firm transportation rights to
nominate to alternate points. If a Shipper uses its
alternate rights, each Segment from the nominated
Receipt Point to the nominated Delivery Point will be
assigned an individual priority as further described
However, Shipper may request to acquire primary rights
at the Receipt and/or Delivery Point from Transporter,
pursuant to Section 8.1(f)(iii).
