MASTER PAL AGREEMENT
THIS MASTER PAL AGREEMENT ("Agreement") is made and entered into this _____ day of _________, 20__, by
and between COLUMBIA GAS TRANSMISSION, LLC ("Transporter") and ____________________________________ ("Shipper").
WITNESSETH: That in consideration of the mutual covenants herein contained, the parties hereto agree
Section 1. Service to be Rendered. Transporter shall perform and Shipper shall receive service in
accordance with the provisions of (1) the effective PAL Rate Schedule; (2) the applicable General Terms and
Conditions of Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No. 1 ("Tariff"), on file with the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission ("Commission"), as the same may be amended or superseded in accordance with the
rules and regulations of the Commission; and (3) the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the
Transaction Confirmation Sheet, referred to as Appendix A hereto, which is incorporated in, and made a part of,
this Agreement. Transporter shall park or loan quantities of gas for Shipper as specified in Appendix A to this
Agreement as the same may be amended from time to time by agreement between Shipper and Transporter, or in
accordance with the rules and regulations of the Commission. Service hereunder shall be provided subject to the
provisions of Subpart B or G of Part 284 of the Commission's regulations.
This Master PAL Agreement, and every Appendix A subject to this Master PAL Agreement, will comprise the
contractual agreement of the parties. If the Master PAL Agreement terminates, every Appendix A subject to this
Master PAL Agreement will be deemed terminated on the same date.
Section 2. Term. Service under this Agreement shall commence on the Term Commencement Date and shall
terminate on the Term Ending Date set forth in Appendix A hereto. Pre-granted abandonment shall apply upon
termination of this Agreement.
Section 3. Rates. Shipper shall pay Transporter the rates as set forth in Appendix A. Transporter
may agree to discount its rate to Shipper below Transporter's maximum rate, but not less than Transporter's
minimum rate. Such discounted rate may apply to: a) specified quantities (contract demand or commodity
quantities); b) specified quantities above or below a certain level or all quantities if quantities exceed a
certain level; c) quantities during specified time periods; d) quantities at specified points, locations, or
other defined geographical areas; e) that a specified discounted rate will apply in a specified relationship to
the quantities actually transported (i.e., that the reservation charge will be adjusted in a specified
relationship to quantities actually transported); and f) production and/or reserves committed by the Shipper. In
addition, the discount agreement may include a provision that if one rate component which was at or below the
applicable maximum rate at the time the discount agreement was executed subsequently exceeds the applicable
maximum rate due to a change in Transporter's maximum rate so that such rate component must be adjusted downward
to equal the new applicable maximum rate, then other rate components may be adjusted upward to achieve the
agreed overall rate, so long as none of the resulting rate components exceed the maximum rate applicable to that
rate component. Such changes to rate components shall be applied prospectively, commencing with the date a
Commission order accepts revised tariff sheets. However, nothing contained herein shall be construed to alter a
refund obligation under applicable law for any period during which rates which had been charged under a discount
agreement exceeded rates which ultimately are found to be just and reasonable.
Section 4. Quantities and Points of Service. Transporter shall, as specified in Appendix A, park or
loan quantities of natural gas at mutually agreed upon point(s) of service in accordance with the Schedule for
Section 5. Notices. Notices to Transporter under this Agreement shall be addressed to it at the
address set forth in Appendix A, and notices to Shipper shall be addressed to it at the address set forth in
Appendix A, until changed by either party by written notice.
Section 6. Appendix A Requirement. Shipper must execute an Appendix A in order to receive service
under this Agreement. On the Shipper's behalf, Transporter will complete the rate, quantity, and other terms
required by the Appendix A consistent with the agreed upon transaction. The completed Appendix A will be
automatically e-mailed to the Shipper and Shipper may choose one of the following two ways of executing an
Appendix A (check selection):
_____ Appendix A will be deemed executed if not disputed in writing within 2 business
days. The Appendix A after execution shall be incorporated in and made a part hereof.
