Northern shall electronically initiate the confirmation process. At the end of each

Gas Day, Northern should provide the final scheduled quantities for the just

completed Gas Day. With respect to the implementation of this process via the 1.4.x

scheduled quantity related standards, Northern should send an end of Gas Day

Scheduled Quantity document. Receivers of the end of Gas Day Scheduled Quantity

document can waive the sender's sending of the end of Gas Day Scheduled Quantity



The sending party shall adhere to nomination, confirmation, and scheduling

deadlines. The receiving party has the right to waive the deadlines.


Shipper shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to Northern at the Point(s) of

receipt on a uniform daily and hourly basis that quantity of natural gas

that has been scheduled for transportation.





An intraday nomination is a nomination electronically submitted after the nomination

deadline whose effective time is no earlier than the beginning of

the Gas Day and runs through the end of that Gas Day. The Evening, Intraday 1 and

Intraday 2 Nomination Cycles constitute Northern's standard Intraday nomination

opportunities. For services that provide for intraday nominations and scheduling,

there is no limitation as to the number of intraday nominations which a service

requester may submit at any one standard nomination cycle or in total across all

standard nomination cycles. Intraday nominations can be used to request increases

or decreases in total flow, changes to receipt points, or changes in delivery points

of scheduled gas. Intraday nominations may be used to nominate new market or

supply. Intraday nominations do not roll over and are applicable to one (1)

day only and must include an effective time. All nominations, including

intraday nominations, will be based on a daily quantity; thus, an intraday

nominator need not submit an hourly nomination. Intraday nominations will

include an effective date and time. The interconnected parties will agree on

the hourly flows of the intraday nomination. Intraday nominations do not

replace the remainder of standing nominations. There is no need to re-nominate if

intraday nomination modifies existing nomination.


Firm intraday nominations are entitled to bump scheduled interruptible service only

during the Evening and Intraday 1 Nomination cycles. Northern will provide notice

of the applicability and types of penalties to be effective the following Gas Day

for any bumped volumes on its website by 3:00 p.m. prior to the Gas Day. During

non-critical periods, daily penalties will be waived for bumped volumes on the date

of the bump. Northern will provide a separate notice of bumping in the same manner

in which Northern provides notice of operational flow orders. Northern will provide

notification of bumped volumes through the scheduled quantities statement. Northern

will also electronically communicate notice directly to bumped Shipper's in

accordance with the grid-wide timeline for scheduled quantities. Northern shall

provide affected parties with notification of bumping through the Shipper's choice

of Electronic Notice Delivery Mechanism. Unless the affected party and Northern

have agreed to exclusive notification via EDI/EDM, the affected party should provide

Northern with at least one Internet E-mail address to be used for Electronic Notice

Delivery of notification of bumping. The obligation of Northern to provide

notification is waived until the above requirement has been met. Northern will

support the concurrent sending of electronic notification of bumping to two Internet

E-mail addresses for each affected party. Affected parties will manage internal

distribution of notices received by Electronic Notice Delivery. Penalties related

to the bumped volume will be waived if notice has not been provided.
