17.3 Segmentation Rights (Continued)


17.32 Segmentation via Capacity Release (Continued)


Subject to the availability of firm point capacity

on Company's system in the direction of flow

specified in a Releasing or Replacement Shipper's

Transportation Path resulting from a capacity

release, such Shipper shall have the ability to

elevate the scheduling rights from secondary to

primary at one or more Points of Receipt or Delivery

within its Transportation Path up to a total

quantity of gas equal to the Releasing Shipper's or

Replacement Shipper's Total/Agreed Maximum Receipt



Such Shipper may submit a request to Company to

elevate its scheduling rights no later than

1:00 p.m. CCT on the day before nominations are due.


Company shall elevate the secondary capacity rights

to primary capacity scheduling rights to the extent

that firm point capacity exists at the Point(s) of

Receipt or Delivery requested by Replacement or

Releasing Shipper pursuant to Subsection 17.22.

Company shall notify Replacement/Releasing Shipper of

its ability or inability to elevate the scheduling

rights. Such notification shall be made at least one

hour before the timely cycle nominations are due.


The use of segmentation shall not result in an

increase in Shipper's contracted rights.


Company will not permit a Shipper to segment capacity

via the capacity release process when the

Transportation Path segments requested by the Shipper

exceed the Total/Agreed Maximum Receipt Quantity of the

underlying Service Agreement at a pipeline location,

within or outside of its Transportation Path. However,

a segmented transaction consisting of a forwardhaul and

backhaul to the same Point of Receipt or Delivery may

exceed the Total/Agreed Maximum Receipt Quantity of the

underlying Service Agreement.
