GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
12. RATES, TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
12.1 Application. For transportation to storage, no commodity
charge shall apply for deliveries to Storage Points of
Injection except that specific withdrawals of Gas at the
Bistineau Storage Field shall be considered a delivery into
Koch Gatway Pipeline Company under the applicable Rate Schedule
FT or IT Service Agreement.
12.2 Changes in Rates and Other Terms and Conditions.
Transporter shall have the right at any time, and from time to
time, to file and place into effect unilateral changes or
modifications in the rates and charges, and other terms and
conditions of service, in accordance with the Natural Gas
Act or other applicable law. Nothing contained in the
foregoing provision shall preclude or prevent Shipper from
protesting any such changes or modifications; however,
Shipper agrees to pay all rates and charges, and to comply
with all terms and conditions, in effect under this Tariff.
12.3 Negotiated Rates. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary
contained in this Tariff, Transporter and Shipper may negotiate
a rate for service under any rate schedule contained in this
Tariff. Transporter's maximum rate as shown on Transporter's
Statement of Effective Rates and Charges for a service
("Recourse Rate") is available for any Shipper that does not
desire to negotiate a rate with Transporter.
A Negotiated Rate shall mean a rate for service, the individual
components of which may exceed the maximum reservation charge,
if applicable, or usage charge, as stated on Transporter's
Statement of Effective Rates and Charges for that service.
With respect to a Negotiated Rate which, when calculated on a
100% load factor basis, exceeds Transporter's maximum rate for
that service, for purposes of allocation of capacity pursuant
to Sections 10.3 and 10.4 of the General Terms and Conditions
of Transporter's Tariff, Shippers willing to pay said
Negotiated Rate would be considered to have paid the maximum
Recourse Rate. For purposes of exercising rights to continue
service pursuant to Section 21 of the General Terms and
Conditions of Transporter's Tariff, the highest rate that a
Shipper must match if it desires to retain all or a portion of
its capacity and continue to receive firm service under the
same Rate Schedule beyond the expiration date of such Long-Term
Firm Agreement is the maximum rate applicable to such service.
