2.2 Character of Service (Continued)
2.27 Company's Right to Flow Control
If the quantity of gas available at the Balanced Point is less
than the quantity of gas being delivered to the Variable Load
Point, Company reserves the right under this Rate Schedule to
place the Variable Load Point on flow control such that the gas
available at the Balanced Point is equal to the gas being provided
to the Variable Load Point Customer.
3. RATES AND PAYMENTS
The daily Maximum and Minimum Rates for services under this Rate Schedule
are listed on the Statement of Rates in Company's FERC Gas Tariff.
Company may elect to provide service at a rate that is less than the
Maximum Rate, but no less than the Minimum Rate applicable to this Rate
Schedule. However, Company is not obligated to offer to provide service
at any rate less than the Maximum Rate.
Balancing Provider shall pay Company each month the product of the
applicable rate for this service multiplied by the applicable number of
days in the calendar month multiplied by the Balancing Provider's Maximum
Balancing Quantity ("MBQ") specified in Exhibit A(s) of the Agreement.
Payment under this Rate Schedule shall be in accordance with Section 6 of
the General Terms and Conditions.
4. NOMINATIONS AND SCHEDULING
Shippers delivering gas to the Balanced Point shall nominate gas consistent with
the requirements of Section 3 of the General Terms and Conditions.
5. FAILURE OF BALANCING PROVIDER TO RESPOND
When Balancing Provider fails to provide sufficient quantities of gas at the
Balanced Point to effectuate balancing service pursuant to this Rate Schedule for
the Variable Load Point Customer, Balancing Provider shall be deemed responsible
for any resultant charges under the General Terms and Conditions including under
Section 8, should Company issue an Operational Flow Order.
To the extent Balancing Provider fails to maintain a daily operational imbalance
quantity which is equivalent to or less than three percent (3%) of the MBQ, Company
may terminate the Agreement without further notice, unless such failure is due to
Company's actions. Such termination will not relieve Balancing Provider of its
liabilities under this Rate Schedule or such other lawful remedies as Company may
