Notice Text:

1. Under Section 5.3 of its General Terms and Conditions, unless notice to the contrary is posted in the Critical Notices section of this website, Pipeline is currently allowing customers to revise nominations on a prospective basis under any Interruptible Rate Schedule any time prior to the end of the gas day being scheduled, provided that, in Pipeline's reasonable judgment, Pipeline may implement such revision under existing system operating conditions and such revision shall cause no detriment to any other firm or interruptible service.

2. Under Section 5.3 of its General Terms and Conditions, and unless otherwise posted in the Critical Notices section of this website, Pipeline is allowing Customers to deliver gas at city gates and at end-user delivery points in excess of uniform hourly rates so long as such non-ratable deliveries do not pose a threat to the operations of the system or Pipeline's ability to meet its firm obligations.

3. Under Section 28 of its General Terms and Conditions, Pipeline waives its rights and/or customers' obligations under the following provisions of its tariff: "Under section 11.1 of its General Terms and Conditions, Pipeline monitors, on a real-time basis, the inputs and outputs on the system, and while it does not rigidly enforce the daily balancing requirement on the system, it does require balancing if an imbalance would be material to the operation of the pipeline or present the potential either for operational problems or interference with service to other Customers. 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 FRQ Deferred Account, and minimizing credit exposure.

4. Pipeline will waive the provisions of Section 5.1(a) of its General Terms and Conditions and NAESB WGQ Standards No. 1.3.7 and 2.3.5 in order to make retroactive adjustments for Pipeline's errors, reconciliations of operational balancing agreements, and scheduled volume discrepancies identified at interconnecting facilities outside of the NAESB WGQ standard confirmation cycles. In addition, Pipeline will accept, for a period of to three business days after the end of a gas day, retroactive adjustments for customer errors provided that the requested changes (i) are authorized by all affected parties, (ii) improve an imbalance position for the parties impacted, (iii) do not cause scheduled volume discrepancies at interconnecting arbitrage, and (iv) do not impact Pipeline or other customers in a detrimental manner. All required confirmations must be submitted to Pipeline by the close of business on the tenth business day after the end of the applicable gas day.

5. Pursuant to Section 28 of the General Terms and Conditions of Maritimes' FERC Gas Tariff, Maritimes is waiving the requirements in NAESB WGQ Standard No. 0.3.4 that Customer acknowledge receipt of Maritimes' request for information needed by Maritimes in order to perform a creditworthiness evaluation for such Customer.

6. Pursuant to Section 28 of the General Terms and Conditions ("GT&C") of Maritimes FERC Gas Tariff, Maritimes may mutually agree with Customer to allow Customer additional time to provide the security required by GT&C Section 3.8 if Customer needs additional time to provide such security and has demonstrated a good faith effort to provide such security.
