GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
43. Hurricane Surcharge (continued)
43.4 Calculation of Hurricane Surcharge
The surcharge shall be calculated at the end of each annual period by dividing (1) the amount
in the Hurricane Surcharge Account as of the prior August 31 by (2) COMPANY's actual
transportation billing determinants, unadjusted for discounts, but not to include
transportation to and from off-system Receipt and Delivery Points or transportation to a
SHIPPER's CSS, ISS, or on-system processing plant, or a PAL Point of Transaction, or from a
directly connected third party storage account, or from the ANR Pipeline Company Shadyside
Interconnection with COMPANY for transportation packages at capacity previously converted from
COMPANY's Rate Schedule STS, for the most recent 12 months period ending August 31. The
Annual Period shall encompass expenditures from September 1 of a calendar year through August
31 of the following calendar year. The first Annual Period shall commence on September 1,
2009 and end on August 31, 2010.
43.5 Annual FERC Filing:
COMPANY shall file with FERC annually on September 30 a limited NGA Section 4 filing to be
effective November 1 of that calendar year through October 31 of the following calendar year.
The initial Annual FERC Filing shall be made on September 30, 2010. Each Annual FERC Filing
shall include work papers which: (1) list the actual Eligible Cost incurred during the prior
Annual Period including a written description of any Eligible Cost greater than $50,000; (2)
list any insurance or third party proceeds received during the prior Annual Period; and (3)
show the derivation of the Hurricane Surcharge. If the balance in the Hurricane Surcharge
Account at the end of the prior Annual Period is less than $500,000 then the Hurricane
Surcharge shall be set at $0/Dth until the effective date of the next Annual FERC Filing.
Upon the effective date of a subsequent change in COMPANY's rates under a General NGA Section
4 or 5 proceeding, the cumulative Eligible Cost component of the Capital Subaccount component
of the Hurricane Surcharge Account shall be reset to $0 and such cost shall be eligible for
recovery in COMPANY's base tariff rates.
