Guidelines on Nomination Bumping and Elapsed-Prorated-Schedule-Quantity

The term "bumping" refers to the rights of firm customers to supersede the rights of interruptible scheduled customers to flow. The term "Elapsed-Prorated-Schedule-Quantity" means that portion of the scheduled quantity that would have theoretically flowed up to the effective time of the intraday nominations being confirmed (see below).
