Discounts shall apply to points or transportation paths being segmented

only to the extent Transporter explicitly specifies in writing that such

discount shall apply.


(g) To the extent segmentation results in an increase of a Shipper's or

Replacement Shipper's firm contract rights and Transporter schedules and

confirms that increase in firm contract rights, the Shipper or Replacement

Shipper that caused such increase in firm contract rights overlap will be

subject to an overrun charge pursuant to Section XXI and XXII, except as

provided in subsection (d) of this Section XXXVI.


(h) Transporter reserves the right to evaluate and disallow segmentation on

its system on a case-by-case basis for those situations that are not

operationally feasible and not already described in this Section.

Disallowance of segmentation requests will be made on a non-discriminatory

basis. Transporter will post in its Internet web site within 10 business days,

the explanation for any disallowance of segmentation not specifically

described in this Tariff.

(2) (iii), subject to the following provisions regarding coordination between

Transporter and any Third Party Provider:

(1) The imbalance management services offered and provided by a Third Party

Provider will be limited to balancing services for Shippers on Transporter's system.

(2) Transporter will not allow a Third Party Provider to provide an

imbalance management service that would cause either a Shipper(s) or

Transporter to participate in an activity that is in violation of any other

Section of Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff.

(3) Transporter will not allow a Third Party Provider to provide a service

which involves the resale and/or repackaging of an existing balancing

service offered by Transporter if the resale and/or repackaging would

create a greater obligation on Transporter or other Shippers than existed

prior to the resale and/or repackaging.

(4) Prior to offering Imbalance Management Services on Transporter's

facilities, a Third Party Provider must provide Transporter with the

following information:

(a) a clear definition of the operational changes the Third Party Provider will

effectuate at points on Transporter's pipeline system in order to offset the

operational effects on Transporter of imbalances and quantification of the

extent to which such imbalances will be resolved through the provisions of Third

Party Imbalance Management Service;
