|13 May 99||1.4.2.||Recommendation|
|4 Feb 99||5.4.1.||CNG Transmission requests clarification of the recall/reput
option of "Recallable, Not Reputtable." CNG Transmission's interpretation of "Recallable, Not
Reputtable" is that upon recall the releasing shipper cannot reput the release, nor can the
releasing shipper release the capacity to another shipper. The capacity is returned to the
releasing shipper for the full duration of the recall.
Revised Recommendation - as adopted by the EC 7/15/99
|28 Aug 98||1.3.1, 5.3.2, 5.4.X||Request clarification related to the use of only central
clock time values in the date/time data elements for all Capcity Release related datasets
(e.g. Offers, Bids, Awards, Upload to Pipeline or Prearranged Deal, UPPD Validation, Bidder
Confirmation, Final Disposition, Operational Available, Unsubscribed FT, and Critical Notices).
Should all time values be provided as central clock time?
|26 Aug 98||5.4.1, 5.4.2, 5.4.3||When a Transportation Service Provider has posted a
particular Offer, Bid, or Award (as identified by its "number") and then any one or more of the
values, contained within: a) the quantity(ies) data elements, b) rate data elements, c) any of
the date/time elements (i.e., effective begin/end dates, award dates, bidding period dates,
etc.), d) location data elements, or e) data elements containing codes for the parties to that
Offer, Bid or Award, is different in a subsequent posting of information on that Offer, Bid
or Award, shouldn't the Transaction Set Purpose Code be the code associated with "change"
(Offer) or "resubmission" (Award)?
Revised Recommendation - as adopted by the EC on 11/19/98
|4 May 98||1.3.3||It would seem that the standards adopted in GISB Standards
Version 1.3 concerning intraday nominations and scheduling (i.e., results of intraday nominations
are reported by means of the scheduled quantities provided in each intraday period and the
results of the timely nominations are reported by means of the scheduled quantities provided
in the timely period) might change the purpose of GISB Standard 1.3.3? In light of this, has
the purpose of GISB Standard 1.3.3 changed?
|C98006||Enron Capital & Trade Resources - Donna Scott||30 April 98||1.3.9, 1.3.43||Current Standard No. 1.3.9 states in part, "Intra-day
nominations should include an effective date and time." Intraday Standard No. 1.3.e states in
part, "Where Transportation Service Providers support the processing of beginning effective
time...". Are these two standards in conflict in so much as in 1.3.9 Beginning Time is sender's
option, but 1.3.e [GISB Standard No. 1.3.43, Version 1.3] says that the TSPs may or may not
support Beginning Time? How can a data element be Sender's Option and Business Conditional at
the same time?
|Revised C98005||ANR Pipeline - Joe Bianchi||6 April 98||1.3.22i,ii||With regard to GISB Standard 1.3.22ii, Version 1.3, for start
of Day should the previously scheduled quantity be the previous Start of Day scheduled quantity
or the last previous scheduled Intra-Day quantity?
|C98004||TransCapacity - Jim Buccigross||31 March 98||1.3.20, 7.3.16, 7.3.18||Both interpretations 7.3.16 and 7.3.18 use language
addressing GISB Standard No. 1.3.20 Version 1.2, and Version 1.3 was adopted on March 12, 1998.
|C98003||Enron Capital & Trade - Donna Scott||26 March 98||3.4.1||Can an Invoice Statement "Beginning Transaction Date" and
"Ending Transaction Date" be defaulted in each transaction to the first day of the month
without accurately reflecting the correct dates associated with the beginning and ending of a
|C98002||The SABRE Group - Deborah Hughes||18 March 98||1.4.2||Clarify the intention of the "AE" Transaction Status Code
in the Header Level of the Nomination Quick Response.
|C98001||TransCapacity - Jim Buccigross||2 March 98||5.3.26||In the case that a shipper chooses to accept bids in either
Absolute Dollars and Cents or Percentage of Maximum Tariff Rate, and the TSP elects to support
this practice by calculating the best bid regardless of how received, how does this meet the
|C97017||Lone Star Pipeline - Dean Murray||15 October 97||2.3.9||Is this GISB standard of 14.73 Dry consistent with Texas
law, for use by Texas intrastate pipelines which are not under FERC jurisdiction?
|C97016||NGC Corporation - Mark Scheel||02 October 97||4.3.6||According to Standard 4.3.6 notices are now supposed to
be posted on the Transportation Service Provider's (TSP) Web pages. Does this mean that a
TSP is not required to provide any alternative form of communication for notices, such as
telephone or fax, particularly for those issued outside of business hours and on weekends?
|C97015||TransCapacity - Jim Buccigross||14 July 97||1.2.1, 1.3.5, 1.3.7, 1.3.27||Clarifications on Standards 1.2.1, 1.3.5, 1.3.7, and 1.3.27
|C97014||TransCapacity - Jim Buccigross||14 July 97||1.1.18||Can a transportation service provider (TSP1) require that a service requester provide to that TSP1 a DRN belonging to a different TSP (TSP2) in a nomination to TSP1? In other words, in a nomination from a shipper to TSP1, can TSP1 require that shipper to provide DRN's for locations that belong to TSP2?|
|C97013||Order 587C||4 March 97||2.3.30||Clarification of terms for Imbalance Standard 2.3.30 -- Order 587-C, Section II.B.2, pp. 14-16. The term to which the FERC has requested clarification is "similar financial and operational implications" as used in GISB Standard 2.3.30.|
|C97012||Order 587C||4 March 97||2.3.29||Clarification of terms for OBA Standard 2.3.29 -- Order 587-C, Section II.B.2, pp. 14-16. The term to which the FERC has requested clarification is "economically and operationally feasible" as used in GISB Standard 2.3.29.|
|C97011||National Fuel Gas Dist - Cynthia Battista||12 June 97||3.3.15, 2.3.14, 2.3.26||Prior period adjustments are limited to six (6) months from the date of the initial transportation invoice. Can a pipeline which became GISB compliant on April 1, 1997 include in its September 1997 transportation invoice a prior period adjustment for May production.|
|C97010||Amoco - Tom Ehinger||13 May 97||2.3.14, 2.3.26, 3.3.15, 4.3.4||The above-mentioned standards reference a common topic surrounding a 6 month time limit for addressing accounting corrections or revisions to measurement data, allocations and any prior period adjustments as well as the retention period for such data. It must be made clear that audit rights were preserved (either in existing contracts or mutally agreed to in subsequent contracts) by these standards.|
|C97009||Exxon - Bob Wallenhorst||28 April 97||2.3.16||Standard 2.3.16 states "List of allocation
methodologies agreed upon: Ranked, Pro Rata, Percentage, and Swing". So that these
methodologies can be implemented on a consistent basis, GISB should clarify the
application of each of these methodologies (similar to what was done in Interpretation
C96020 for the Capacity Release Bid Evaluation Methodologies listed in Standard 5.3.3).
|C97008||Natural Gas Clearinghouse - M.Scheel||24 April 97||4.3.2, 4.3.3, 4.3.9, 1.3.2||Is the 855 Nomination Quick Response always due at
noon even when the 850 nomination request is received earlier that 11:45 am by the
transportation service provider or is it always due 15 minutes later no matter when the
850 nomination request is received? In other words, if a timely nomination is sent in
at 9:30 am and received by the TSP by 9:45 am, will the 855 quick response still be
sent back at noon or does it need to be sent back earlier by 10:00 am (15 minutes
|C97007||Natural Gas Clearinghouse - M.Scheel||07 April 97.||1.3.2, 1.4.2||It should be clarified that the "Nomination Quick Response" document due at noon as required by GISB standard 1.3.2 is used to validate the nomination request in implementing the X.12 nomination related data sets and is not required for the other forms of electronic delivery of Faxes and EBB on-line systems.|
|C97006||TransCapacity - J.Buccigross||04 April 97||1.4.3||In the "Request for Confirmation" document, should the sender indicate the quantity that a shipper requested, or should the quantity indicate only the positive or negative change requested?.|

|C97004||TransCapacity - J.Buccigross||05 March 97||1.4.1||Can an originator place any character string up to 11 characters long into this field? Is so should the field be named Nominator's Tracking Number?|
|C97003||TransCapacity - J.Buccigross||05 March 97||2.3.27, 2.3.15, 2.3.24, 1.3.14||Do these standards taken together mean that all allocated quantities and imbalance statements will at least provide daily quantity detail, even when the quantities are estimates? Do these standards taken together mean that all allocated quantities and imbalance statements will also provide monthly quantity detail even if the quantities are estimates?|
|C97002||TransCapacity - J.Buccigross||05 March 97||1.3.3||Does this standard mean that a new scheduled quantity will be sent at the end of every gas day? Will the information contained in "End of Gas Day Scheduled Quantity" include only those transactions scheduled the previous day including intra-day nominations and scheduling changes regardless of when they were nominated and confirmed? Will an "End of Gas Day Scheduled Quantity" be sent when the only change is the date.|
