PAWS Program Description

PAWS Program Overview

The Rate Schedule PAWS (Pooling and Wheeling Service) became effective January 1, 2008. The PAWS service makes it possible for the aggregation of supply and the development of hubs on the Rockies Express system. PAWS have two components – pooling and wheeling. Customers can request a PAWS contract by contacting their Account Director. One PAWS contract is all that a specific shipper needs, as it can be used at each of the hubs for both pooling and wheeling. There is no charge for having a PAWS contract; charges only apply as indicated above when it is nominated and scheduled.

Pooling

Transportation of gas from a physical point within a specific hub to the pooling point included in that hub is Pooling. Using the PAWS service, shippers will not be charged any fee or FL&U (unless a Facility Rate/FL&U is applicable). Pool activity must be balanced. Discounts, if any, for the Facility rates will be posted at each hub on the Interactive Website (see the Hubs/Rates selection in the menu on the left) and will be automatically granted. Pooling is scheduled as an interruptible service.

Wheeling

Transportation of gas from a physical or the pooling point within a specified hub to a physical point within that hub is Wheeling. Using PAWS service, shippers will be charged a wheeling fee (see the Hubs/Rates selection in the menu on the left), L&U and a Facility Rate/FL&U as applicable. Discounts, if any, for the Facility rates will be posted at each hub on the Interactive Website and will automatically be granted. Wheeling is scheduled as an interruptible service.

Hubs

Each hub will consist of several points of interconnection between the Rockies Express pipeline system and the systems of other entities, all located within close proximity to each other. Each hub will also include an associated logical pooling point. For scheduling purposes, logical pooling points are located at the most downstream point, respectively, among member points at the hub. Each hub, including its member physical points and pooling point, will be identified on Rockies Express' Interactive Website (see the Hubs/Rates selection in the menu on the left).
