Delivery Point Operator Service


5.1 The quantities of natural gas that may be taken by the

DPO on a no-notice basis at the Citygate Delivery Point

shall be limited to those quantities otherwise

available under the Subject Service Agreements, less

any quantities of service that have been released to

others or nominated for delivery to Secondary Delivery

Points. This quantity shall be defined as the "Maximum

No-Notice Quantity."

5.2 The maximum quantity of gas that the DPO may take at

the Citygate Delivery Point in any period within a Day

(Hourly Entitlement) shall equal the sum of (1) the

hourly entitlements of services that have been

scheduled for delivery at the Citygate Delivery Point

other than services provided under the Subject Service

Agreements, plus (2) the combined hourly entitlements

of the DPO and all participating CSCs which shall be

calculated by adding the MDTQs of the Subject Service

Agreements with primary point entitlements at the

Citygate Delivery Point on that Day and multiplying

that sum by the following factors:

1. 120% of 1/24th in any one hour

2. 115.7% of 3/24th in any three consecutive


3. 112.6% of 5/24th in any five consecutive


4. 104.2% of 12/24ths in any twelve consecutive


5.3 To the extent that a DPO exceeds its Hourly Entitlement

on any Day when Pipeline has issued an operational flow

order pursuant to Section 9.5.A. of Rate Schedule FTNN,

then Pipeline shall assess and the DPO shall pay a

penalty of $25 per Dt applicable to the largest

quantity overrun in any one of the four periods defined

in Section 5.2, above, provided however, that if DPO is

assessed a excess hourly flow penalty under any other

of Pipeline's Rate Schedules that is greater than that

assessed under this Rate Schedule, payment of such

higher penalty shall discharge the DPO's obligation to

pay the penalty under this Section 5.3.

5.4 The Hourly Entitlements established by this Rate

Schedule are designed to provide the DPO and CSC with hourly

flexibility within the established MDTQ of each of

Pipeline's shippers. These Hourly Entitlements shall not be

interpreted to provide any shipper with a right to take

deliveries of gas in excess of its MDTQ on any Day.


The DPO Agreement shall identify the Citygate Delivery

Point, which shall be the physical location(s) at

which the DPO may arrange for no-notice delivery of natural

gas, subject to adequate corresponding service entitlements

under the Subject Service Agreement(s).


7.1 The DPO shall maintain and provide to Pipeline a list

of the Citygate Swing Customers (CSCs) that have

qualified to participate in the DPO's retail access

program. Shippers other than CSCs may also deliver gas

to the Citygate Delivery Point; however, the DPO may

not attribute unnominated service swings by such

customers to Pipeline or CSCs hereunder. Pipeline

shall confirm with each identified CSC that it desires

to participate in the DPO program, and shall enter into

a CSC Agreement with each identified CSC, subject to

the requirements of Pipeline's Rate Schedule CSC.

7.2 Nominations of services to be delivered to the Citygate

Delivery Point shall be made in accordance with the

procedures established under Section 11A of the General

Terms and Conditions of this Tariff.
