RATE SCHEDULE DEX-1

Deferred Exchange of Storage Gas

 

1. AVAILABILITY

 

This Rate Schedule is available as provided herein to any party

(Shipper) for the deferred exchange of natural gas in storage under the

following conditions:

 

(a) Shipper has Working Gas Inventory in the Target Storage Facility;

 

(b) Transporter needs to increase the quantity of gas available to it

for system balancing in the Target Storage Facility; and

 

(c) Shipper and Transporter have executed a Service Agreement for

service under this Rate Schedule.

 

2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE

 

2.1 Applicability. This Rate Schedule will apply to the deferred

exchange of storage gas, consisting of the in-ground transfer by Shipper

to Transporter of some or all of Shipper's Working Gas Inventory in the

Target Storage Facility and the delivery by Transporter to Shipper

during a future time period of the Deferred Exchange Quantity at the

Deferred Exchange Storage Facility. At Shipper's option, Transporter

will deliver the Deferred Exchange Quantity either by performing an in-

ground transfer to Shipper's account in the Deferred Exchange Storage

Facility or by making the Deferred Exchange Quantity available to

Shipper at the Deferred Exchange Storage Facility receipt point on

Transporter's system.

 

2.2 Character of Service. Service rendered to Shipper under this Rate

Schedule will be firm up to Shipper's Deferred Exchange Quantity and

shall not be subject to curtailment except as expressly provided in the

General Terms and Conditions. Rate Schedule DEX-1 service will be

offered when Transporter, in its sole discretion, determines that it

needs to increase the level of storage gas available to it for system

balancing at the Target Storage Facility in order to enhance or maintain

the operational integrity of its system. Service rendered under this

Rate Schedule in excess of Shipper's Deferred Exchange Quantity is not

firm.
