of Customer's Agent shall not have precedence over a PDA

submitted by a Point Operator.


(c) A PDA submitted to Pipeline may specify one or more of the

following allocation methodology types, which specification

shall be subject to approval by Pipeline, provided, however,

that Pipeline shall not unreasonably withhold such approval.

The methodology types acceptable to Pipeline are: 1) Ranked,

2) Pro Rata, 3) Percentage, 4) Swing, and 5) Operator

Provided Value. Such standard allocation methodologies

shall be available for use at all points. A new allocation

detail may be needed when a nomination changes.


(d) At a location which is not covered by an OBA, Midla will

allocate to Customers at the Customers' contract level or

higher. Midla is not required to allocate to a lower level

or accept accounting allocation instructions from the

Customer (i.e., neither Pre-determined Allocations (PDAs)

nor Customer ranks supplied in the nominations.

Where Midla allocated to a lower level (more detailed) than

the Customer contract level and where:

i. The Confirming Parties confirm at a higher level (less

detailed) than the nomination level; and,

ii. A Customer has submitted more than one nomination line

item to Midla;


Midla should employ the its tariff allocation methodology

(including, where applicable, employing the other Confirming

Party(ies)' (PDAs) to allocate Gas to the confirmation

detail level.


Midla should then either:

a) accept and employ a PDA from such Customers or

b) employ the Customer's ranks supplied in the nomination.


Where Midla accepts PDAs from a Customer (as specified in a)

above and the Customer does not provide a PDA, Midla should

employ the tariff allocation methodology.


(e) At a location which is not covered by an OBA, a Confirming

Party should submit a Pre-determined Allocation (PDA) to the

allocating party at a level that is based on the allocating

party's business practice, but in no event, will such PDA be

at a lower level (more detailed) than that level of

information exchanged between such parties during their

confirmation process.
