In accounting for the volumes delivered by MEP, in

circumstances where multiple services are provided at any Delivery

Point, the sequence of volumes delivered shall be determined by a

predetermined allocation agreement (PDA) between MEP and the

operator of the facilities immediately downstream of the point at

which MEP delivers Gas. An OBA may be one form of a PDA. The

upstream or downstream party providing the point confirmation

should submit the PDA to the allocating party after or during

confirmation and before the start of the Day. In the absence of

such an agreement, Section 8.2 shall control. Any new or proposed

change to the methodology should be sent to MEP before the start of

the Day on which the methodology is to be effective. Unless

otherwise agreed, MEP shall confirm receipt of the methodology

within fifteen (15) minutes via MEP's Interactive Website if

received via MEP's Interactive Website or via EDI if received via

EDI. MEP's acceptance is contingent on MEP 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 that can be used are combinations of methodology

types. Different methods may be submitted for overages and

underages. No retroactive change to the PDA or to any allocation

under a PDA shall be made unless MEP and all affected parties





Unless otherwise agreed and subject to Section 6 of Rate

Schedule IBS, Gas at any Delivery Point shall be deemed to have

been delivered in the following sequence:


(a) Volumes scheduled under firm transportation

Agreements consistent with confirmed nominations and within MDQ;


(b) Authorized Overrun Gas under FTS Agreements

consistent with confirmed nominations and volumes scheduled under

Rate Schedules ITS, PALS or IBS consistent with confirmed

nominations and within MDQ; and


(c) Additional volumes shall be allocated pro rata

based on confirmed nominations among Rate Schedules ITS, PALS and

IBS Agreements under which Shippers nominated for that Day.
