nominating, scheduling and balancing for the receipt or delivery of gas

at points of interconnection. As part of the provisions of these

agreements, Transporter will allow the trading of imbalances between

Receipt Points or between Delivery Points located in the same

geographical area.


13.17 Pre-Determined Allocations ("PDAs"). In the event an OBA

is not in effect at a particular interconnecting point on

Transporter's system, the following will apply:


Transporter and Shipper shall list in Shipper’s service agreement

allocation methodology types agreed upon: Ranked, Pro Rata, Percentage,

Swing, and Operator Provided Value. (NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.16)


The same standard allocation methodologies

shall be available for use at all points. (NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.17)


The types of allocation methodologies is a list

from which two parties may agree. If the two parties cannot

agree upon an allocation methodology, pro rata based upon

confirmed nominations should be used as the default method.

The party responsible for custody transfer (the party

performing the measurement function) should provide the

allocation. (NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.18)


The timing for reporting daily operational

allocations after the gas has flowed is within one business day

after end of gas day. If the best available data for reporting

daily operational allocations is the scheduled quantity, that

quantity should be used for the daily operational allocation.

(NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.21)


This standard applies to the daily provision of operational

allocated quantities whether they are provided pursuant to NAESB

WGQ Standard 2.4.3 or NAESB WGQ Standard 2.4.4.


Upon request to its Transportation Service Provider (TSP), a

Service Requester (SR) should be provided operational allocated

quantities pursuant to WGQ Standard 2.4.3 or 2.4.4 for the transaction(s)

which have been scheduled by such TSP for the SR.


A TSP can agree to send the operational allocated quantities on a

daily basis to a SR rather than accept the Request for Information

(NAESB WGQ Standard 2.4.7) for operational allocated quantities.


A TSP is not required to support requests for operational allocated

quantities other than on an "all locations for a SR basis." Where a

TSP has determined to support this standard in a manner other than:

a) providing specific operational allocated quantities in response

to a request for same, or

b) providing operational allocated quantities on an "all locations

for an SR basis," then the SR can rely on the absence of a line

item(s) provided by a TSP as indicative that the particular line

item(s)’ scheduled quantities are operational allocated quantities.

(NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.21)


The time limitation for disputes of allocations shall be 6 months

from the date of the initial month-end allocation with a 3-month

rebuttal period. This standard shall not apply in the case of

deliberate omission or misrepresentation or mutual mistake of fact.

Parties' other statutory or contractual rights shall not otherwise be

diminished by this standard. (NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.26)
