3.5 Scheduling Penalty


For service under Rate Schedule FT, Rate Schedule LFT, and Rate Schedule IT, a penalty shall be

levied by Transporter and paid in dollars (U.S.) by any Shipper who deviates from the limits

specified below. Such penalties shall apply on an individual contract basis. Nothing herein

shall limit the Transporter's right to take actions of whatever nature as may be required to

correct deviations which threaten the integrity of its system, including maintenance of service

to other customers.


A daily scheduling penalty, as stated below, shall be levied by Transporter and paid in dollars

(U.S.) by any Shipper who, upon notification by Transporter of the existence of deviations in

scheduled deliveries to be received by the Transporter at each point of receipt on a daily

basis, fails to correct the problem on a prospective basis after a 48 hour grace period. Such

penalty shall be applied daily to the quantities which deviate from the limits specified below,

on a prospective basis, commencing after the 48 hour grace period and initial notification by

Transporter. This penalty shall continue through the Month in which notification was given or

until the deviation is corrected.


The penalty shall be the maximum applicable Rate Schedule IT rate for the zones of the service

to be provided. The penalty shall be billed each month based on daily quantities which deviate

from Daily Scheduled Deliveries by the greater of 10% or 2,000 Dth. The penalty is in addition

to applicable transportation charges.


3.6 Hourly Variation


Receipts and deliveries, except deliveries for Rate Schedule EFT, shall be made at uniform

hourly rates throughout the Gas Day to the extent practicable; Transporter, however, may agree

on a not unduly discriminatory basis to receive or deliver Gas at a non-uniform rate during any

hour. Subject to Section 2(e) of Rate Schedule EFT, Shippers under such Rate Schedule shall be

entitled to maximum hourly deliveries equal to the respective delivery point MHQ.


3.7 Limitation of Obligation


In the event that any gas in excess of the Scheduled Daily Delivery would adversely affect

Transporter's operations and/or its ability to meet its contract commitments to others,

Transporter shall have the right to refuse to accept, without any liability to Shipper or any

other person, all or such part of the excess delivery as Transporter deems necessary, and

Transporter shall notify Shipper accordingly as soon as feasible. To the extent Transporter is

required to accept any such gas due to operational conditions on its system, Transporter shall

be entitled to retain the gas for its own account and to utilize such gas for any lawful

purpose, without payment therefor, subject to the balancing provisions of this FERC Gas Tariff,
