GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
10. DETERMINATION OF DAILY RECEIPTS
10.1 To the extent feasible, all volumes received by Natural at a
Receipt Point shall be allocated in accordance with the confirmed
nominations for that point. In the event the actual volumes received by
Natural do not equal the confirmed nominations for that point, any
underage or overage will be allocated as follows:
(a) First, in accordance with the effective predetermined
allocations (PDAs) submitted by those entities (Allocators) owning or
controlling the gas being delivered to Natural. An operational balancing
agreement ("OBA") is one type of a PDA. Shipper agrees that such an
allocation is binding on Shipper.
(b) Then, if there is no effective PDA, pro rata to the
extent applicable based on confirmed nominations or transfer
nominations, as applicable. Shipper agrees that such an allocation is
binding on Shipper.
10.2 Each Shipper shall be responsible for ensuring that its
suppliers submit PDAs as provided herein, except that no other PDAs need
be submitted if an OBA is in effect at a point. All PDAs must be
submitted to Natural through Natural's Interactive Website, EDI, or
other agreed upon electronic means, on or before the gas Day the PDA is
to be effective. Such PDA shall specify how any underage or overage from
the confirmed nominated volumes should be allocated among the entities
listed on the PDA. Natural shall acknowledge receipt and acceptance of
the PDA through Natural's Interactive Website if received through
Natural's Interactive Website or via EDI if received via EDI (or
returning via some other mutually agreeable means the PDA to Allocator).
Such notification of acknowledgment and acceptance will be within
fifteen (15) minutes of receipt. Natural's acceptance is contingent on
Natural being able to administer the allocation submitted by the
Allocator. Allocation methodology types upon which two parties may agree
are: ranked, pro rata, percentages, swing and operator provided value.
Other examples of allocation methods which can be used are matching of
supply sources with specified customers and combinations of methodology
types. Different methods may be submitted for overages and underages.
If the parties cannot agree, Section 10.1(b) shall apply.
