GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

2. ELECTRONIC BULLETIN BOARD

2.1 In General. Transporter shall operate and make available to Shippers and other third parties, as set

forth below, an interactive electronic communications system (Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB)) (also

referred to by its trade name Columbia Navigator®).

All Shippers receiving service under any of Transporter's Rate Schedules shall have the capability to

make use of Transporter's EBB as required by this Tariff. The EBB shall be available to any party with

compatible electronic equipment. All Shippers and parties making use of Transporter's EBB shall be bound by

and comply with the procedures governing its use, as set forth in this Tariff and, for those Shippers or

other parties utilizing electronic contracting through the EBB, in Section 5.7 of the General Terms and

Conditions.

2.2 Operation.

The EBB shall provide, among other things (i) a search function for locating all information

concerning specific transactions, and (ii) a menu that shall enable parties to separately access notices of

available capacity, records of each transaction entered in the transportation log, and standards of conduct.

Transporter will permit parties to download files from the EBB system so the contents can be reviewed in

detail without tying up access to the system. Transporter will retain in an electronic format records of

the information displayed on the EBB for no less than the preceding three years, and will permit parties

reasonable access to those records.

2.3 Communications.

(a) The EBB shall be used to communicate initial and revised gas transportation schedules,

confirmation of gas transportation nominations, amendments of interruptible receipt and delivery points

under gas transportation service agreements, and any other data or notice required by this Tariff. After

notice by Transporter, the following types of communication may be permitted: notices not previously

required to be given through the EBB, service agreements and amendments, and such other communications as

the parties may agree in writing. Where electronic communications are required by this Tariff, Transporter

may waive the requirements and accept such communications in another acceptable form on a nondiscriminatory

basis. Notices posted on the EBB that require action by another party within two business days, including

notices to interruptible shippers, shall also be communicated by Electronic Notice Delivery.

(b) In the event of failure of all or part of the EBB system, communications ordinarily conveyed

through the EBB shall, to the extent possible, be conveyed through a combination of Electronic Notice

Delivery, telephonic, or facsimile transmissions. Transporter will make available certain blank forms on

its EBB that Shipper may print for use in case of a failure of Transporter’s EBB and Shipper may transmit

those completed forms to Transporter by facsimile transmission. Shipper will be responsible for printing

and saving the blank forms in advance of any EBB failure. In the event of failure of all or part of the

EBB system, the forms Shipper shall transmit by facsimile transmission or other approved means of

communication shall include: notices requiring action within two business days; requests for service not

requiring open bidding; capacity releases made pursuant to an exempt transaction; executions of Service

Agreements; and submissions of nominations. In the event of failure of all or part of the EBB system, the

forms Transporter shall transmit by Electronic Notice Delivery or facsimile shall include status reports,

executed Service Agreements, invoices, and notices requiring action within two business days.
