17. Certification for Qualifying as Section 311 Transportation



All Shippers requesting transportation service under Section 311

of the NGPA of 1978 must provide to Vitco certification from an

intrastate pipeline company or local distribution company sufficient

for Vitco to verify that Vitco's transportation service is qualified

under Section 284.102 of the Commission's Regulations. Certification

that is solely applicable to paragraph (3) below must be received by

Vitco prior to the commencement of transportation service.


The certification provided by Shipper must include sufficient

information to verify that:


(1) An intrastate pipeline or local distribution company has physical

custody of and transports the natural gas at some point; or


(2) An intrastate pipeline or local distribution company holds title

to the natural gas at some point, which may occur prior to,

during, or after the time that the gas is being transported by

Vitco, for a purpose related to its status and functions as an

intrastate pipeline or its status and functions as a local

distribution company; or


(3) The gas is delivered at some point to a customer that either is

located in a local distribution company's service area or is

physically able to receive direct deliveries of gas from an

intrastate pipeline, and that local distribution company or

intrastate pipeline certifies that it is on its behalf that

Vitco is providing transportation service.
