Steps for Service

Once it is determined that natural gas service is desired, what is the process for obtaining the service?

Step 1:

Service Request Form/Interconnect Data Sheet

Requesting party should complete a service request form and an interconnect data sheet. Eastern Shore will use the information provided therein to design initial facilities and evaluate the initial project economics. A confidentiality agreement may also be entered into if desired.

Step 2:

Execute Precedent Agreement

Execute Precedent Agreement, binding ESNG and the requesting party for the service requested.

Step 3:

Appropriate regulatory filing with FERC

ESNG will determine what regulatory filings and approvals are necessary based on the nature of the service requested.

Step 4:

FERC and other party review

After the appropriate filing is made, it will be subject to FERC review as well as to review by ESNG’s existing shippers.

Step 5:

Construction of facilities / service agreement

Once the appropriate regulatory approvals are received, construction of any new facilities required will begin. During this time, a service agreement binding ESNG and the requesting party to the transaction will be executed (this supersedes the Precedent Agreement).

Step 6:

Service Commences

Once construction is complete and the service agreement is executed, natural gas service commences.
