NO-NOTICE FIRM TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Continued)
Under no circumstances shall the five-day payback requirement apply
to Customers supplying their own gas for all deliveries under this
5.3 If an imbalance resulting from the provision of no-notice
service is not resolved by the Customer within 5 days as
described above, the Customer will be prohibited from
calling upon no-notice service for the remainder of the
calendar month in which the imbalance was incurred or until said
imbalance is corrected. If the five-day payback period extends into
the next calendar month after the month in which the imbalance was
incurred, the imbalance will be carried forward to the next month.
Equitrans will resume no-notice service to the Customer in the
subsequent month as soon as the imbalance carried forward from the
prior month is resolved. If the Customer fails to resolve the
imbalance within the five-day period, the Customer will be prohibited
from calling upon no-notice service for the remainder of the month in
which the payback period expired.
5.4 Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 5.3, Equitrans will
continue no-notice service to Customer after the expiration of the
payback period even where the Customer has not resolved its imbalance
to the extent that gas dedicated to no-notice service remains in
storage and the Customer's failure to resolve a prior imbalance does
not impair Equitrans' ability to meet its other service obligations.
5.5 At the end of the month in which the payback period expired,
imbalances resulting from the provision of no-notice service will be
resolved in accordance with Section 12 of the General Terms and
Conditions of Equitrans' FERC Gas Tariff.
5.6 A Customer will not be permitted to exceed its MDQ either in
no-notice deliveries or pipeline receipts unless expressly
authorized by Equitrans.
6. AUTHORIZED NO-NOTICE OVERRUNS
Upon request of Customer, Equitrans in its reasonable discretion may
receive transport and deliver natural gas in excess of Customer's
no-notice MDQ specified in its Transportation Service Agreement. Said
overrun must be requested by Customer in advance, and shall be authorized
by Equitrans if operating conditions permit and overruns can be
accomplished without adverse impact to any other Customer.
