52 Pa. Code § 60.3. Eligibility for natural gas transportation service.

§ 60.3. Eligibility for natural gas transportation service.

 (a)  Transportation service shall be provided without discrimination as to type and location of customer. A natural gas utility shall state in its tariff the minimum volume of transported natural gas that entitles a customer to transportation service. These volumes shall be set at a level which maximizes the number of customers that can receive transportation service while permitting the natural gas utility to effectively and efficiently manage its natural gas distribution system. The minimum volume of transported natural gas that entitles a customer to transportation service may not be greater than 5,000 Mcf (thousand cubic feet) per customer or buyer group per year.

 (b)  The tariff shall permit individual customers or groups containing no more than ten customers to be eligible for transportation service. Larger groups shall be permitted if the utility and the customers agree.

 (c)  Gas injected into the natural gas utility’s system shall be of a quality and pressure that is reasonably acceptable to the utility.

 (d)  A customer classified as a Priority 1 customer under §  69.21(a)(1) (Reserved) or a group of customers containing such a customer, shall purchase standby sales service as described in §  60.5 (relating to standby sales service) before it may be eligible for natural gas transportation service. This requirement does not apply to a customer which can demonstrate that the facility for which it seeks to transport gas possesses adequate installed alternative fuel capability.
