Field Name Description
Row
A row number which may begin at one and may or may not be sequential. Missing row numbers do not mean that there is missing information, just that duplicative information was not sent (sometimes the information from the pipelines is duplicative).
Zone
The zone of the pipeline that the point on this line is in.
State
The state the point is in.
County
The county the point is in.
Pt Name
The name of the point.
Mileage
The mileage marker associated with the point on this line.
Pt/seg Code
The code used by the pipeline for the point.
CC
The Common Code associated with the point on this line.
Pt Qty Limit
The maximum quantity associated with this point.
Pt Min Qty
The minimum quantity associated with the point.
Pt Capacity Type
The point may be a receipt, a delivery or other point.
Pipeline
Pipeline name.
Acquiring Shipper
The Shipper that acquired this capacity from the releaser.
Pre-arranged Deal
This is "Yes," if a company has a match right associated with this offer. "No" indicates a truly open deal.
Capacity Type
Examples of capacity types are point to point, or a segment of capacity.
Award Quantity
The contract quantity awarded to the acquiring Shipper.
Qty Units
Units may be Dth or MCF.
Min Qty Bidder Committed to Pay for during Award Term
For volumetric releases (i.e., not a reservation charge or demand charge release) this is the quantity for which the acquiring Shipper agreed to pay at the volumetric rate whether they use the capacity or not. This "minimum bill" is sometimes characterized as a load factor percentage and is listed in a different field.
Type of Award Examples are temporary, permanent, etc.
Award Reserve Charge
The reservation rate that the Acquiring Shipper is paying for the capacity (the Award Quantity).
Max Reserve Charge
The maximum pipeline rate for this capacity
Rate Units
Rate may be expressed in $/Dth per month, $/Dth per day, etc.
Award Usage Charge
The rate that the Acquiring Shipper is paying for the capacity they use or that they have committed to pay even if they did not use it.
Max Usage Charge
For a "usage charge only" bid, this is the maximum pipeline charge permitted on a usage basis.
Award Usage Charge as pct of Max Rt
If the type of award is usage charge only and was done on a percentage of max rate bases, then this is the percentage of the maximum usage rate that the Acquiring Shipper will pay. Not a usual form of award, but is used when a very long term volumetric release is done and the pipeline's rate might change. This form of deal would track the pipeline's rates as they change.
Min Vol Pct Bidder Committed to Pay For During Award Term
When the release is a volumetric release (i.e., not a reservation charge or demand charge release) this is the percentage load factor (of the award quantity) that the acquiring Shipper agreed to pay for at the volumetric rate whether they use the capacity or not. It acts like a minimum bill. Some times it is characterized as a minimum quantity instead. If so, that quantity is listed in a different field.
Time Zone
Almost always central time.
Award Post DTM
DAte and time that this deal was posted on the pipeline's system.
