Receipt Points



a) Amount of Receipt Point Capacity


Disregarding differences in capacity due to fuel and unaccounted for, each

existing Shipper's contract may reserve receipt point capacity up to one

hundred fifteen percent (115%) of the MDQ, except as provided herein. The

rate for receipt capacity reserved in excess of delivery capacity is one-half

of the TF12 Base monthly reservation charge per MMBtu set forth on Sheet

No. 50. Pooling point(s) as referenced in Section 28 of the GENERAL TERMS

AND CONDITIONS of this Tariff and the deferred delivery point if elected as a

primary receipt point, are not eligible for the additional fifteen percent

(15%) of the receipt point capacity since the initial entry receipt point

into Northern's system has utilized the additional fifteen percent (15%).

However, capacity reserved at any one receipt point cannot be greater than

one hundred percent (100%) of the MDQ. Regardless of the receipt point

capacity reserved above 100% of MDQ, MDQ is the maximum daily volume of

natural gas that Northern is obligated to transport and deliver to Shipper

and Shipper is entitled to receive pursuant to this Rate Schedule, subject to

provisions of Section 29 of the GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS of this Tariff.

No new contracts will be allowed receipt point capacity in excess of delivery

point capacity.


Flexibility. Shippers may request to amend their agreements to add,

change, or delete primary firm receipt points as limited by the firm

throughput service agreement as discussed above. Approval of such

request will be subject to capacity availability and operational

considerations. All receipt points on the system will be available for

use as alternate firm receipt points within the area provided by the

contract and subject to operational considerations.


No geographical limitations will be placed on the availability of

amended receipt points within the service area provided by the



Other than the discount provision below, there will be no reservation

fee impact if receipt points are moved solely within the Market Area or

moved solely within the Field Area.


Discounts. Any discount granted (reservation or commodity) at a primary

receipt point will not be automatically granted at an amended or

alternate receipt point.


b) Receipt Point Allocation


Allocation of capacity is pursuant to Section 26 of the GENERAL TERMS

AND CONDITIONS of this tariff.
