service agreement, except a Shipper using capacity acquired

under a capacity-release arrangement, may mutually agree to

convert that service agreement to a service agreement

subject to negotiated rates. If only a portion of the

capacity under any service agreement will be priced at

Negotiated Rates, the original service agreement must first

be bifurcated, and recourse rates will continue to apply to

the service agreement not subject to the Negotiated Rates.


(b) Shipper had access to service pursuant to this

FERC Gas Tariff at the rates set forth on the Statement of

Rates at the time of the execution of the transportation

service agreement implementing negotiated rates.


(c) Questar has filed a tariff sheet advising the

Commission of such agreement. The numbered tariff sheet

will state the exact legal name of the Shipper, the

negotiated rate, other applicable charges, the receipt and

delivery points, the volume of gas to be transported and the

applicable rate schedule for service provided at a

negotiated rate. The tariff sheet will include a statement

affirming that the negotiated-rate agreement does not

deviate in any material aspect from the applicable form of

service agreement or Questar will file the agreement

pursuant to 154.112(b) of the Commission's Regulations.


30.4. Rate Case Treatment.


(a) Subject to the limitations set forth in

subsections (b) and (c) below, Questar shall be allowed to

seek a discount adjustment to the level of its recourse

rates in general rate cases initiated by Questar under

Section 4 of the Natural Gas Act or by others under Section

5 of the Natural Gas Act. Questar shall be allowed to seek

inclusion of negotiated rates in discount adjustments

whenever the negotiated rate is below the posted maximum

rate under the applicable rate schedule for all or part of

the 12-month base period and/or the nine-month rate case

adjustment period. However, if the negotiated rates were

not in effect during the base period, the negotiated rates

may still be included in a discount adjustment when they are

projected to be in effect at a level below the otherwise

applicable maximum recourse rate as of the end of the nine-

month rate adjustment period.
