Subject: Revised Draft Tariff Filing - Customer Specific Entitlement Provision
After feedback received from our customers, Northwest Pipeline (Northwest) is providing a revised draft
of the Customer-Specific Entitlement Tariff Filing for your review. The changes in the tariff language are
associated with the terms “Zone” and “Operational Impact Area” used in the proposed Customer-Specific
Entitlement Tariff Filing posted on the EBB on November 17, 2020. Northwest is amending the proposed
tariff language to be in alignment with the intention of the tariff enhancement.
As background, Northwest, from a fairness standpoint, is proposing to update language to its customer-
specific entitlement provision to allow Northwest to declare a customer-specific unauthorized overrun or
underrun entitlement for a specific Receiving Party who has contributed to the adverse operating conditions.
The intent of the proposed change is to be able to use the targeted customer-specific entitlement to manage
offending parties who are contributing to the operational limitations of the system rather than using the
general system entitlement and impacting parties who are not contributing to the operational problem.
Northwest will not use the customer-specific entitlement to remedy a zone or specific area and believes that
this updated language is aligned with the intention of the tool.
Northwest greatly appreciates the feedback it has received on this proposed change. The goal is to file this
with FERC by December 3, 2020 with implementation on/around the first week in January.
Please direct comments and concerns to Bela Patel (713-215-2659, email@example.com) or Jennifer
Rowan (713-215-4217, firstname.lastname@example.org).
A draft copy of the proposed filing is available on Northwest's website under Regulatory/Proposed Tariff
Filings at the following link: http://www.northwest.williams.com/NWP_Portal/ (click 'Regulatory,' then
