Section 17



17. Segmentation


17.1 General Rule: A Customer that has contracted for firm pipeline capacity under Rate

Schedules FT, STF, NNS, NNL, SNS, or WNS may segment that capacity into separate

parts for its own use or for the purpose of releasing its contracted firm capacity

to replacement shippers.


17.2 Texas Gas will permit nominations of forwardhauls up to the contract demand and

backhauls up to the contract demand to the same point at the same time, to the

extent operationally feasible.


17.3 Segmentation on Market Laterals by a Customer for its own use.


(a) A segmenting Customer may nominate up to its contract demand in any number

of combinations of receipt and delivery points so long as (i) at least one

point in the nominated transaction is within its primary path, (ii) the

quantity nominated in any segment does not exceed the contract demand and

(iii) the points are in the rate zones traversed in whole or part by the

Customer's primary path.


If a Customer desires to nominate a quantity in any segment in excess of

its contract demand, such excess quantity must be nominated, scheduled and

billed as authorized overrun service.


(b) In addition, a Customer may also nominate a segmented transaction entirely

outside its primary path (but within the same rate zones as the primary

path); provided, however, to determine whether such use of secondary

capacity exceeds the Customer's contract demand in any zone within its

primary path, such use in any zone (including released capacity) is added

to the highest use of capacity in any segment within the Customer's primary

path in such zone. Quantities in excess of the Customer's contract demand

must be nominated, scheduled and billed as authorized overrun service.


(c) The provisions set forth in 39.3(a) and 39.3(b) apply to the following

market laterals:


(i) Hardinsburg-Indianapolis Lateral: The Hardinsburg-Indianapolis

market lateral begins at the Hardinsburg Compressor Station in

Breckinridge County, Kentucky and extends due north 77 miles to the

Leesville Compressor Station in Lawrence County, Indiana. The

lateral continues to the northeast for 32 miles and crosses State

Route 46, at which point a segment continues 5 miles to the

northeast and terminates at a point near Columbus, Indiana in

Bartholomew County. The main lateral continues north 37 miles from

S.R. 46 to the terminus at Smith Valley in Johnson County, Indiana.
