be amortized over a mutually agreeable period not to extend beyond the primary

contract term of the Service Agreement between Freebird and Shipper. Carrying

charges shall be computed utilizing interest factors acceptable to both

Freebird and Shipper.

 

25.2 Freebird may waive from time to time, at its discretion, all or a portion

of the facility cost reimbursement requirement set forth in Section 25.1 for

Rate Schedule FSS, ISS, IPS and ILS if the Shipper provides Freebird with

adequate assurances of storage quantities to make construction of the

facilities economical to Freebird. All requests for waiver shall be handled

by Freebird in a manner which is not unduly discriminatory. For purposes of

determining whether a project is economical, Freebird will evaluate projects

on the basis of various economic criteria, which will include the

estimated storage quantities, cost of the facilities, operating and

maintenance as well as administrative and general expenses attributable to the

facilities, the revenue Freebird estimates will be generated as a result of

such construction, and the availability of capital funds on terms and

conditions acceptable to Freebird. In estimating the revenues to be

generated, Freebird will evaluate the existence of capacity limitations

downstream of the facilities, the marketability of the capacity, the

Interruptible versus the Firm nature of the service, and other similar factors

which impact whether the available capacity will actually be utilized.

 

26. OFF-SYSTEM PIPELINE CAPACITY

From time to time, consistent with FERC policy, Freebird may enter into

transportation and/or storage agreements with other interstate or intrastate

pipeline companies ("off-system pipeline"). In the event that Freebird

acquires capacity on an off-system pipeline, Freebird will use such capacity

for operational reasons to transport gas which will not physically or

contractually enter its storage facility and will only render service to

Shippers on the acquired capacity pursuant to Freebird’s FERC Gas Tariff and

subject to Commission-approved rates, as such tariff and rates may change from

time to time. For purposes of transactions entered into subject to this

Section 2, the "shipper must have title" requirement is waived.

available to Shippers and other third parties, as set forth below, an Internet
