market contracts, and related information. Transporter will

not seek to recover Price Differential GSR Costs from

contracts, and related information, that allow Transporter

to buy Gas at less than market prices. List A and List B

are available for review in Shreveport and Washington, D.C.

upon execution of an appropriate protective and non-

transition costs by, for example, negotiating to buyout,

buydown, modify or settle the terms and conditions of

Transporter's Gas supply contracts and by temporarily

assigning from time to time contracts pursuant to

Transporter's then existing assignment policy included on

Transporter's Internet Web Site. In the filings described

in Section 23.2(b), below, Transporter shall file to recover

any GSR Costs incurred by Transporter in seeking to minimize

transition costs as described above.

necessary Commission authorization, with respect to any GSR

Costs actually incurred by the end of the quarter preceding

the filing and which are known and measurable, plus interest
