(b) The following measures shall serve to limit inappropriate cost

shifting from negotiated-rate services to recourse-rate services:


(i) A discount adjustment to recourse rates shall only be

allowed to the extent that Questar can meet the standards required of an

burden of proving that any discount granted is required to meet competition.


(ii) Questar shall be required to demonstrate that any

discount adjustment does not have an adverse impact on recourse-rate shippers.

achieved without the negotiated rate.


(c) Questar shall also have the right to seek discount

adjustments in future rate cases at the greater of (a) the negotiated-rate

revenues received, or (b) the discounted recourse-rate revenues that otherwise

would have been received under a pre-existing Part 284 service agreement.
