To become a Shipper simply download our Welcome Package. Iroquois' flexible and reliable service portfolio includes:

Firm Service
Highest priority transportation service offered with a guaranteed availability unless prevented by act of force majeure. Service requires a demand charge (reservation) along with commodity charge. From time to time, Iroquois is able to make available firm receipt and delivery capacity based on current design conditions on the pipeline.

Such capacity is made available through an Open Season or Pre-Arranged Deal. Open Seasons generally last from 1 to 15 business days depending on the length of time for which the firm transportation service is being offered. Open Season Announcements are posted on Iroquois’ EBB as detailed in Section 3 of the RTS Rate Schedule in Iroquois’ FERC Gas Tariff.

Iroquois and the Shipper may execute a pre-arranged service agreement that would allow a Shipper to enter into a pre-arranged deal with Iroquois.  Iroquois would then post the terms of the pre-arranged service agreement on Iroquois’ EBB and hold an Open Season.  At the end of the Open Season posting period, the bids will be evaluated.  Should any one bid be at a higher present value than the pre-arranged deal, then the pre-arranged Shipper will be given a one-time right within two (2) business day of notification to match the higher bid’s PV in order to obtain the capacity.

Loan Service
A service, which allows a customer to borrow (loan) quantities from the pipeline to be used for transport by the customers under their firm or interruptible transportation agreement. Customer will return quantities at a later date. This service can be interrupted on a short notice. Charges are rendered for this service.

The Park and Loan Service has been used in a variety of ways, which include:  balancing to manage nominated vs. confirmed mismatches; balancing to manage intra-day swings in temperature and related demand requirements; balancing to manage instances where secondary receipt/delivery points are constrained; and balancing to manage take-away restrictions at meters as a source of peaking supply.

Operating Balancing Agreement
An agreement between a pipeline and the operator of a receipt or delivery point physically connected to the pipeline's system. The agreement has specified procedures for balancing transportation service nominations and actual flow quantities at the specified point.

Extended Receipt and Extended Delivery Service
A service available to firm transportation service holders. This service enables a Zone 1 only or Zone 2 only firm shipper to utilize a zone outside the shipper’s primary contract path on a secondary basis. A shipper only pays when it uses the extended service. Such service is subject to the recourse or negotiated rate. Although a shipper utilizing this service receives a lower priority to firm and secondary firm service, the shipper would receive a higher priority than it would under an interruptible service contract.
