Shipper under Rate Schedule FSS shall be responsible for

arranging transportation to and from Storage Points of

and obligations under its Service Agreement and Rate

Rate Schedule and its rights to store, withdraw and/or

inject Gas will be subject to the provisions thereof. If

the releasing Shipper proposes to, or requires a

transfer-in-place of part of its Working Gas Quantity in

conjunction with its release and assignment of storage

capacity rights (whether at the commencement and/or

termination of such release), it shall so specify in its

offer to release and such transfer shall be implemented

contemporaneously with the release and/or termination

thereof, as applicable, subject to compliance with the

provisions of Section 8 of Rate Schedule FSS. The

replacement Shipper must withdraw, or otherwise reduce to

the release. In lieu of withdrawing, or if unable to

withdraw, its Working Gas Quantity, the replacement

Shipper can also attempt to effect a transfer of its

Working Gas Quantity to another storage service Shipper

as provided in Section 8 of Rate Schedule FSS. If the

replacement Shipper fails to withdraw, or arrange for

transfer of, its Working Gas Quantity by the end of the

term of its temporary release, as a default mechanism,

title to Shipper's remaining Working Gas Quantity will be

vested, at no cost, in the releasing Shipper which

released its capacity to the replacement Shipper on a

temporary basis. A replacement Shipper's rights and

obligations under a permanent release to withdraw its

Working Gas Quantity at the expiration or termination of

its Service Agreement shall be as provided in Section 2.5

of Rate Schedule FSS.
