Rider H - Balancing Service Rider

Applicability:

This rider is applicable to any Applicant who enters into Gas Transportation Agreement with the Company under any rate.

In Franchise Title Transfer Service:

In any Gas Delivery Agreement between the Company and the Applicant, an Applicant may elect to initiate a transfer of natural gas from one of its pools to the pool of another Applicant for the purposes of reducing an imbalance between the Applicant's deliveries and consumption as recorded in its Banked Gas Account or Cumulative Imbalance Account. Elections must be made in accordance with the Company's policies and procedures related to transaction requests under the Gas Delivery Agreement.

The Company will not apply a charge for transfers between pools that have similar Points of Acceptance (i.e. both Ontario or both Western Points of Acceptance). For transfers between pools that have dissimilar Points of Acceptance (i.e. one an Ontario and one a Western Point of Acceptance), the Company will apply the following Administration Charge per transaction to the Applicant transferring the natural gas (i.e. the seller or transferor).

Administration Charge: $169.00 per transaction


Enhanced Title Transfer Service:

In any Gas Transportation Agreement between the Company and the Applicant, the Applicant may elect to initiate a transfer of natural gas between the Company and another utility, regulated by the Ontario Energy Board, at Dawn for the purposes of reducing an imbalance between the customer's deliveries and consumption within the Enbridge Gas Distribution franchise areas. The ability of the Company to accept such an election may be constrained at various points in time for customers obtaining services under any rate other than Rate 125 or 300 due to operational considerations of the Company.

The cost for this service is separated between an Administration Charge that is applicable to all Applicants and a Bundled Service Charge that is only applicable to Applicants obtaining services under any rate other than Rate 125 or 300.

Administration Charge:
Base Charge $50.00 per transaction
Commodity Charge $0.4910 per 10³m³
Bundled Service Charge:
The Bundled Service Charge shall be equal to the absolute difference between the Eastern Zone and Southwest Zone Firm Transportation tolls approved by the National Energy Board for TCPL at a 100% Load Factor.


Gas in Storage Title Transfer:

An Applicant that holds a contract for storage services under Rate 315 or 316 may elect to initiate a transfer of title to the natural gas currently held in storage between the storage service and another storage service held by the Applicant, or any other Applicant that has contracted with the Company for storage services under Rate 315 or 316. The service will be provided on a firm basis up to the volume of gas that is equivalent to the more restrictive firm withdrawal and injection parameters of the two parties involved in the transfer. Transfer of title at rates above this level may be done on at the Company's discretion.

For Applicants requesting service between two storage service contracts that have like services, each party to the request shall pay an Administration Charge applicable to the request. Services shall be considered to be alike if the injection and deliverability rate at the ratchet levels in effect at the time of the request are the same and both services are firm or both services are interruptible. In addition to like services, the Company, at its sole discretion based on operational conditions, will also allow for the transfer of gas from a storage service contract that has a level of deliverability that is higher than the level of deliverability of the storage service contract the gas is being transfered to with only the Administration Charge being applicable to each party.

In addition to the Administration Charge, Applicants requesting service between two storage service contracts not addressed in the preceding paragraph would be subject to the injection and withdrawal charges specified in their contracts.

Administration Charge: $25.00 per transaction
