8.1 FIRM SERVICE

 

Firm transportation service under this FERC Gas Tariff shall be provided

available in Transporter's existing facilities or facilities to be

constructed pursuant to Section 4.7, which firm capacity is not subject to

a prior claim by another customer or another class of service. The

provisions of this Section 8.1 shall also be applicable to firm service

under special rate schedules contained in Transporter's Volume No. 2

Tariff.

 

(a) A valid request for firm transportation service under this FERC Gas

Tariff shall be in accordance with the procedures contained in

Section 4.

 

(b) Transporter shall not be required to perform or continue service on

behalf of any Shipper that fails to comply with the terms contained

in the GT&C, in particular, but without limitation, in Sections

8.1, 4 and 5.7 and any and all terms of the applicable rate

schedule and/or the terms of Shipper's TSA with Transporter.

 

(c) Upon request of Transporter, Shipper shall from time to time submit

estimates of hourly, daily, monthly and annual quantities of gas to
