Pipeline is allowing carbon dioxide up to 4.0 percent on this system. Pipeline is allowing carbon dioxide between 4.0 percent and 5.0 percent when it has been calculated by Pipeline that the commingled gas stream within that segment or any other affected pipeline segment does not exceed 4.0 percent carbon dioxide and that such high carbon dioxide gas will not otherwise harm system operations or integrity.

With respect to cumulative or monthly imbalances, Pipeline is in contact with its Customers throughout the month and continues to work with them with the following goals: maintaining the minimum possible monthly imbalances, reducing possible arbitrage on the system, minimizing adverse impacts of cashouts on the ASA, and minimizing credit exposure." "Under Section 2.4(A) of Rate Schedule CDS, Pipeline waives the requirement that customers initiate the correction of imbalances caused by no-notice service within two days of their creation, so long as such waiver does not threaten the operation of the system or Pipeline's ability to provide service to the remainder of its customers.
