2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE (continued)

 

provide or continue such service if to do so would be inconsistent with

the principles set forth in Section 20.1 of the General Terms and

Conditions. Under any circumstances, the aggregate quantities available

on any Day to all Rate Schedule FSS Shippers for such activities shall

not exceed 50,000 Dth for injections and 100,000 Dth for withdrawals.

For purposes of scheduling, allocations and curtailment pursuant to

Sections 5 and 10 of the General Terms and Conditions, injections during

the Withdrawal Period and withdrawals during the Injection Period under

this Rate Schedule within aggregate available quantity limitations shall

have priority over injections and withdrawals under Rate Schedule ISS,

and if Transporter receives requests for injections and withdrawals in

excess of the capacity available for such service, available capacity

shall be allocated pro rata based on each Shipper's nomination. In the

event that Shipper injects quantities into storage during the Withdrawal

Period, Transporter may at any time thereafter give Shipper notice to

withdraw all or part of such quantities and Shipper shall be obligated

to do so within thirty (30) Days after such notice. If Shipper fails

for any reason to withdraw such Gas within such period, then Transporter

may retain possession of and title to such quantities and Shipper shall

relinquish all claims thereto, provided that such period shall be

extended proportionately if, and to the extent that, Shipper's failure

to withdraw is caused by Transporter's inability due to operating or

force majeure conditions to accommodate Shipper's requests for

withdrawal. Nothing contained in this Section 2.10 shall be construed

to limit Transporter's right to implement any and all operational

controls provided for in Section 20 of Transporter's General Terms and

Conditions, including, without limitation, Transporter's right to issue

an Operational Flow Order to require Shipper to withdraw all or part of

Shipper's Gas in storage pursuant to the notice provisions contained in

said Section 20.
