excess of the applicable MHQ specified in the Agreement, plus applicable Transporter's Use

as determined in Section 27 of the General Terms & Conditions of this FERC Gas Tariff,

at any point of delivery in any Hour and on any Gas Day a quantity of gas in excess of the

except that Transporter may, on a not unduly discriminatory basis, agree to certain

differing levels in Shipper's MDQ and/or MHQ for specified periods throughout the term of

and/or MHQ levels, shall be specified in Appendix A of the Agreement.

small amounts of gas. The MHQ shall be no less than 1/16th and no greater than 1/4th of the

MDQ under the Agreement.
