10.4 Capacity Allocation and Confirmation Process (Continued)


10.46 Timing of Confirmation


When a Confirmation Requester receives a

Confirmation Response document from a Confirming

Party by the conclusion of a given quarter hour

period, the Confirmation Requester will send to the

Confirming Party's designated site a corresponding

Confirmation Response Quick Response document by the

conclusion of the subsequent quarter hour period.



The quarter hour periods will be defined to begin on

the hour and at 15, 30 and 45 minutes past the hour.

A given quarter hour will contain all transactions

whose receipt time is less than the beginning of the

subsequent quarter hour. [1.3.45]


10.47 Departure from Confirmation Deadlines


Confirming Parties' nightly processing and routine

maintenance occurring outside normal business hours

are apt to interrupt the normal schedule of

confirmations/quick response turnaround stated in

NAESB WGQ Standard 1.3.45 (see 10.46). Such delays

shall be kept to a minimum. The normal schedule

shall be resumed at the earliest opportunity and no

later than the start of normal working hours the

following day, seven days per week. [1.3.46]


10.48 Stranded Nomination


A nomination at an in-line Transfer Point may become

isolated from its supply or market component as part

of the confirmation process.


Company will attempt to contact the Nominating Party

who has a stranded nomination to see if the Transfer

Point requested can be changed to its corresponding

physical point (no increase in transportation

mileage). If such a nomination change cannot be

made and confirmed in a timely manner, the stranded

nomination will not be scheduled.
