GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

30. NEGOTIATED RATES

 

30.1 Negotiated Rates. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary

contained in this Tariff, Equitrans may charge a negotiated rate

for service under any Part 284 Rate Schedule to any Customer that

currently receives service at the rates set forth in the

firm and interruptible service are less than the revenues that

would be generated under the Recourse Rate for the applicable
