Kate Fiedler / Jim Buccigross
16 January 2003 EDM Implementation Manual Group 8760 requests clarification as to whether individual implementations are free to use the http HEAD command, prior to using the POST command to deliver the NAESB payload. When implementing a NAESB EDM solution, the standard clearly relies on the http protocol spec for details of how to implement the protocol. It is also clear that the http POST command should be used, and not the GET command.

C99001 CNG Transmission

Twyla Strogen
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
C98009 TransCapacity

Michael Pierce
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?

Recommendation
C98008 TransCapacity
Michael Pierce
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
C98007 TransCapacity
Jim Buccigross
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?

Recommendation
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?

Recommendation
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?

Revised Recommendation
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.

Recommendation
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 transaction?

Recommendation 1

Recommendation 2

Recommendation 3
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.

Recommendation
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 applicable standard?

Recommendation
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?

Recommendation
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?

Recommendation
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

Recommendation
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).

Recommendation
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 later)?

Recommendation
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.
