Alternate Firm Receipt and Delivery Points.

------------------------------------------

 

Flexibility. All receipt and delivery points on the system will be available

for use as alternate firm points (including zone deliveries to a specific

customer) within the service area provided by the contract and subject to

operational considerations.

 

Discounts. Any discount granted (reservation or commodity) at the primary

points will not be automatically granted at the alternate points.

 

Reservation Rate. The reservation rate for the alternate point will be the

higher of the maximum rate for the alternate point or the maximum rate for the

primary point. However, a Shipper may not have point flexibility between the

Market Area and the Field Area (or vice versa) unless the Shipper has a

combined Field Area/Market Area contract.

Schedule LFT as a result of a force majeure event as defined in Section 10, "Force
