A. TF Agreements
1) TF Agreements entered into pursuant to the New Services Settlement and prior to
implementation of Order No. 636, shall retain any unilateral rollover right
(grandfathered rollover right) contained therein. However, should a Shipper request
a rollover of an agreement which contains grandfathered rollover rights for less
than the term of the original TF agreement, or a rollover at less than maximum
rates, then the MDQ shall be subject to the Right of First Refusal process described
in Section 52 of The GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS of this Tariff. If a Shipper
under an agreement containing a grandfathered rollover right requests a rollover of
less than the MDQ, then only that portion of the agreement for which a rollover was
requested will remain subject to the grandfathered rollover right. The remaining
quantity shall not be subject to the Right of First Refusal process. If a Shipper
under an agreement containing a grandfathered rollover right provides notice of
termination pursuant to the agreement, it must notify Northern at the same time of
its desire to have the capacity posted for bids in the Right of First Refusal
process. If Shipper does not so notify Northern, the MDQ shall not be subject to
the Right of First Refusal process.

of service or for a term of more than one (1) year for service not available for
twelve consecutive months and TF Agreements at discounted rates entered into prior to
