6.1 Shipper shall nominate gas for transportation under this FTS Rate

Schedule, on a monthly basis, by notifying Transporter of the

daily quantity of gas in Dth's it has available for transportation

at each Point of Receipt and of the quantity of gas it desires to

have delivered at each Point of Delivery. The total receipt

nominations must equal the total Equivalent Quantities to be

delivered to Shipper by Transporter at the Point(s) of Delivery

(i.e., the total quantity at all Points of Delivery must equal the

total quantity at all Points of Receipt less Fuel Usage and

Applicable shrinkage), with the exception of quantities nominated

to correct an imbalance and the quantities retained by Transporter

pursuant to Section 6 of this FTS Rate Schedule.


At a receipt or delivery point, the lesser of rule (confirmed or

nominated flow) applies when confirming. If no communication is

received, the lesser of the new nomination or previously scheduled

quantity applies.


6.2 Nominations for transportation shall be submitted in accordance

with the provisions of Section 6 of this FTS Rate Schedule;

nominations for authorized overrun service shall be submitted

separately. All nominations should include shipper-defined begin

dates and end dates. All nominations excluding Intra-day

nominations shall have roll-over options. Specifically, shippers

will have the ability to nominate for several days, months or

years, provided the nomination begin and end dates are within the

terms of the shipper's service agreement.


Transporter shall also accept Intra-day nominations. All

nominations, including Intra-day nominations, shall be based on

daily quantify; thus, an Intra-day nominator need not submit an

hourly nomination. Intra-day nominations shall include an

effective date and time. The interconnected parties should agree

on the hourly flows of the Intra-day nomination, if not otherwise

addressed in the applicable service agreement. At least one (1)

Intra-day nomination can be submitted 4 hours prior to gas flow.

Intra-day nominations can be used to request increases or

decreases in total flow, changes to receipt points, or changes to

delivery points of scheduled gas. Except where specified in other

sections herein, all nomination procedures that apply to regular

nominations also apply to Intra-day nominations. This means that

the process (excluding timelines) of quick response, confirming

with upstream and downstream parties, and scheduling, also applies

to Intra-day nominations. Intra-day nominations do not rollover

(ie. Intra-day nominations span one day only). Intra-day

nominations do not replace the remainder of a standing nomination.

There is no need to re-nominate if an Intra-day nomination

modifies an existing nomination.
