5. During the progress of the 2002 - 2008 Expansion Project, an Owner's

share of the expansion project storage capacity will be based upon its

proportion of the expansion cushion gas capacity.

 

6. Consistent with the equal ownership principle set forth above, if events

of force majeure, failure to receive and accept necessary regulatory

approvals, or issues pertaining to mechanical integrity or water

discharge, prevent the Owners from completing the full development of

the 2002 - 2008 Expansion capacity, then, subject to FERC approval, the

developed expansion capacity and the associated cushion gas volumes

along with the costs of such cushion gas, shall be reallocated among the

Owners at the transferring Owner's net book value for such cushion gas

volumes.

 

7. Each Owner shall use its best efforts to inject its full one-third share

of expansion cushion and working gas no later than November 1, 2008.

However, if the Owners are prevented from so doing due to events of

force majeure, failure to receive and accept necessary regulatory

approvals, or issues pertaining to mechanical integrity or water

discharge, the Owners agree to extend or modify this Agreement to allow

later injection, and to not unreasonably withhold such approval, subject

to receipt and acceptance of necessary regulatory approvals.

 

8. Once an Owner has developed its total one-third share of the complete

2002 - 2008 Expansion Project, any Deferring Party shall have the

opportunity to make up all or a portion of its deferred share. However,

in the event a Deferring Party elects at that time not to participate

and not to inject its one-third share of the applicable cushion and

working gas under the 2002 - 2008 Expansion Project, then the remaining

Owners shall have the right to develop for their accounts the Deferring

Party's deferred share and the Owners' Shares of Storage Service Rights

and Ownership Percentages shall be adjusted accordingly.
