15. SERVICE NOMINATIONS AND ALLOCATION OF AVAILABLE CAPACITY (continued)
15.11 Intra-day Nominations
(a) Shippers may each day submit intra-day nominations in accordance with
applicable NAESB standards.
(b) All nominations, including intra-day nominations, should be based on a
daily quantity; thus, an intra-day nominator need not submit an hourly
nomination. Intra-day nominations should include an effective date and
time. The interconnected parties should agree on the hourly flows of the
intra-day nomination, if not otherwise addressed in transporter's
contract or tariff.
(c) Intra-day nominations can be used to request increases or decreases in
total flow, changes to receipt points, or changes to delivery points of
(d) Intra-day nominations do not rollover (i.e. intra-day nominations span one
day only). Intra-day nominations do not replace the remainder of a standing
nomination. There is no need to re-nominate if intra-day nomination
modifies existing nomination.
(e) Bump Protection: Transporter shall not schedule an Intra-day nomination
change if the result of scheduling such nomination would be to bump
flowing and/or scheduled transportation under any firm service.
Transporter shall give an intra-day nomination submitted by a firm
shipper priority over nominated and scheduled volumes for shippers
flowing volumes with a priority below firm service. Transporter shall
provide bump notice to bumped shipper(s) by 2:00 p.m. as to CCT as to
intra-day nominations submitted at 10:00 a.m. CCT and by 10:00 a.m. CCT
as to intra-day nominations submitted at 6:00 p.m. CCT. Transporter will
not permit bumping for intra-day nominations submitted by the 5:00 p.m.
CCT deadline to be effective at 9:00 p.m. CCT. Transporter shall provide
bump notice by the notice procedures set forth in Article 12, Section
12.2(d) of the General Terms and Conditions to the bumped shipper(s).
Such notice will further state whether daily penalty provisions will
apply on the day on which a Shipper's volumes are reduced.
15.2 Monthly Allocation of Capacity
In reaching its monthly determination of capacity which Transporter anticipates
that it will have available to satisfy Shippers' requests for services,
Transporter will utilize the following order of priority and procedure:
(a) In the event that Transporter is required to allocate capacity on its
system, it shall give first priority to quantities under its firm
transportation rate schedules. For capacity not allocated under the open-
season, or for capacity which later becomes available, priority among firm
Shippers will be established on a first-come, first-served basis. To the
extent capacity remains, it shall be allocated to interruptible services
as set forth in Section 15.2(c).
(b) Should it become necessary to curtail service among firm shippers,
Transporter will curtail service ratably.
(c) In allocating capacity under Section 15.2(a) among interruptible
Shippers, or curtailing service under Section 15.4 among interruptible
Shippers, transporter may give priority based on Shipper's willingness to
pay the highest unit rate for such service (not to exceed the maximum
rate for such service set forth in Transporter's applicable rate
schedule) with Shippers willing to pay the highest unit rate receiving
first priority and so on.
