5/ Fixed Negotiated Base Commodity Rate. Shipper shall not be charged any base commodity rate for service provided under the Storage Agreement.

 

6/ Negotiated Rate Terms, Conditions and Additional Charges.

 

(a) General Negotiated Rate Limitations. The Negotiated Monthly Base Reservation Rate shall apply only to service provided to Shipper by Natural under the

NSS Agreement during the Negotiated Rate Term, up to a maximum aggregate firm quantity equal to the respective Eligible Contract MDQ and the Eligible

Contract MSV set forth in footnote three above, for all quantities stored on a firm basis under the NSS Agreement and any associated capacity release

replacement agreements. For any aggregate quantities stored on a firm basis for Shipper and any associated capacity release replacement Shippers which

are in excess of the Contract MDQ or the Contract MSV, as applicable, Shipper shall be charged the greater of: (a) the 100% load factor equivalent of

the Negotiated Monthly Base Reservation Rate; and (b) the 100% load factor equivalent of the applicable maximum monthly base reservation rate set forth

in Natural's FERC Gas Tariff, as may be revised from time to time.

 

(b) Discountable Third Party Surcharges. From time to time, certain reservation and/or commodity surcharges may be approved by the FERC for inclusion in

Natural's FERC Gas Tariff which Natural is: (i) required to collect from Shipper and remit to the FERC or to another third party; and (ii) permitted to

discount the amount of such surcharge from the applicable maximum rate set forth in Natural's FERC Gas Tariff ("Discountable Third Party Surcharges").

Natural shall discount any particular Discountable Third Party Surcharge to the maximum extent permitted under the provisions of Natural's FERC Gas

Tariff. Shipper shall only be responsible for payment to Natural of any portion of such Discountable Third Party Surcharge which Natural is not

permitted to discount and for which Natural bills Shipper.

 

(c) Additional Rates, Charges and Surcharges. In addition to the Negotiated Monthly Base Reservation Rate, and unless otherwise expressly provided herein or

agreed to in writing by Natural, Shipper shall also pay Natural all other applicable maximum rates, charges, surcharges and penalties of any nature set

forth in Natural's FERC Gas Tariff, as may be revised from time to time, including without limitation all applicable maximum: (i) Storage Fuel charges;

(ii) authorized and unauthorized overrun charges and (iii) sourcing charges. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, to the extent that any such

additional maximum rate, charge, surcharge or penalty is derived from the applicable base reservation rate, then Natural shall derive such additional

rate, charge, surcharge or penalty utilizing the greater of: (i) the Negotiated Monthly Base Reservation Rate and (ii) the applicable maximum base

reservation rate set forth in Natural's FERC Gas Tariff, as may be revised from time to time.

 

7/ Receipt and Delivery Points. The Receipt Points for injection and the Delivery Points for withdrawal under the Rate Schedule NSS Agreement shall be the
