Each Customer must withdraw a minimum of 19% of its Maximum Customer Inventory

equals the Customer's total inventory at the start of the withdrawal season.

MRT will supply each Customer with an individual storage deliverability curve

prior to each withdrawal cycle.

withdrawal schedule by 10:00 a.m. CST at least fifteen (15) calendar days

prior to the beginning of each withdrawal month. Customers must nominate

daily withdrawals in accordance with the nomination procedures and deadlines

set forth in Section 8 of the General Terms and Conditions.

or as provided for in Section 14.15 of the General Terms and Conditions, Rate

Schedule FSS Customers shall not be permitted to exceed the maximum monthly

withdrawal amounts set forth in the withdrawal schedule under Section 4.1. If

a Customer's monthly withdrawals are deficient by more than 5% of its Minimum

$10.00 per Dth for quantities left in storage which exceed the 5% tolerance.
