(For Use Under Rate Schedule LNGS)

 

Date:__________________________, Contract No.__________________

 

SERVICE AGREEMENT

 

This AGREEMENT is entered into by and between East Tennessee Natural Gas, LLC, ("Transporter")

and _____________________________________ ("Shipper").

 

WHEREAS,

 

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and of the mutual covenants herein contained,

the parties do agree as follows:

 

1. Transporter shall accept injections of gas into and permit withdrawals of gas from its

liquified natural gas ("LNG") facility, up to the Maximum Daily LNGS Quantity and the Winter

Season LNGS Quantity as set forth in Exhibit A attached hereto pursuant to the terms of this

Agreement and subject to Rate Schedule LNGS in Transporter's Tariff and subject to the

General Terms and Conditions of Transporter's Tariff. Exhibit A, Rate Schedule LNGS, and the

General Terms and Conditions of Transporter's Tariff are incorporated herein by reference and

made a part hereof.

 

2. This Agreement shall be effective as of ___________ and shall remain in force and effect

until and including ___________ ("Primary Term"); provided however, that if the Primary Term

is one Year or more, then the contract shall remain in force and effect and the contract term

will automatically roll-over for additional five Year increments ("Secondary Term") unless

Shipper, one Year prior to the expiration of the Primary Term or a Secondary Term, provides

written notice to Transporter of either (1) its intent to terminate the contract upon

expiration of the then current term or (2) its desire to exercise its right-of-first-refusal

in accord with Section 7.3 of Transporter's General Terms and Conditions. Provided further,

if the Commission or other governmental body having jurisdiction over the service rendered

pursuant to this Agreement authorizes abandonment of such service, this Agreement shall

terminate on the abandonment date permitted by the Commission or such other governmental

body. If any provision of this Agreement is declared null and void, or voidable, by a court

of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be considered severable at Transporter's

option; and if the severability option is exercised, the remaining provisions of the

Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.

 

Notwithstanding any other provision of Transporter's Tariff to the contrary, Shipper shall

have a right-of-first-refusal pursuant to Section 7.3(b) of Transporter's General Terms and

Conditions with respect to each Secondary Term under this Agreement, provided that (i) the

Maximum Daily LNGS Quantity and the Winter Season LNGS Quantity for the entire Secondary Term

is equal to the Maximum Daily LNGS Quantity and the Winter Season LNGS Quantity,

respectively, for the Primary Term of this Agreement, and (ii) the rate for service during

the entire Secondary Term is the applicable maximum recourse rate on file with the Commission

for service hereunder.

 

3. The applicable maximum rate(s) and all other applicable charges and surcharges specified in

the Notice of Rates in Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff and in Rate Schedule LNGS shall apply to

service pursuant to this Agreement except as provided to the contrary in any written or

electronic agreement(s) between Transporter and Shipper in effect during the term of this

Agreement.

 

Shipper agrees that Transporter shall have the unilateral right to file with the appropriate

regulatory authority and make changes effective in the rates and charges applicable to

service pursuant to Rate Schedule LNGS and in any provisions of Transporter's General Terms

and Conditions as they may be revised or replaced from time to time. Without prejudice to

Shipper's right to contest such changes, Shipper agrees to pay the effective rates and

charges for service rendered pursuant to this Agreement. Transporter agrees that Shipper may

protest or contest the aforementioned filings, or may seek authorization from duly

constituted regulatory authorities for adjustment of Transporter's existing FERC Gas Tariff

as may be found necessary to assure Transporter just and reasonable rates.
