Nov 1, 2010 Rate Design

Rate Design and Services Implementation for NGTL System - November 1

On August 12, 2010, NGTL received approval from the National Energy Board (NEB) to implement a new rate design and services structure.

Specifically, the NEB approved:

  • the proposed NTGL System rate design methodology and terms and conditions of services;
  • the supporting Tariff amendments; and,
  • the contract transition mechanism as described in NGTL’s System Rate Design, Services and Integration Application filed with the NEB on November 27, 2009.

The new rate design combines all firm deliveries into FT-D service and incorporates demand based contracts for firm intra-Alberta Shippers. As well, the ex-basin delivery tolls (FT-D1) will be location specific while the intra Alberta deliveries will include a postage stamp demand charge for all firm (FT-D2 + FT-D3) intra-provincial deliveries. Term differentiated rates will now be available for all delivery customers.

As part of the transition mechanism NGTL filed an application with the NEB on August 30, 2010 for approval of revised 2010 interim rates, tolls and charges to be effective November 1, 2010.

NGTL will initiate a contract transition election process for delivery customers starting September 20th. The timeline is as follows:

  • Customers will receive notice of their existing contracts and an election form on September 20, 2010.
  • Customers are asked to return their elections to NGTL by October 1, 2010. Customers will have the opportunity to elect term differentiated rates based on contract term. Customers may also consolidate contracts.
  • NGTL will process these contract requests into the Dovetail contracting system and complete a credit review for each request.
  • NGTL will forward contracts to customers by October 8, 2010 fulfilling their requests to the extent possible.*
  • Customers are asked to return signed Customer contracts to NGTL by October 22, 2010.

* NGTL will work with customers to deal with credit issues or capacity constraint issues during this time frame should these issues arise.

Customer information sessions on the contract transition process will be held in room 214 of the TransCanada Tower on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, September 14th 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM
  • Friday, September 17th, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
    • Webex will be available on Friday. Please contact Tracy Batiuk at (403) 920-5004 for further instructions if you wish to participate via Webex.

Please feel free to attend either or both of the sessions above, no RSVP is required.
