RATE SCHEDULE FRSS

FIRM REVERSE STORAGE SERVICE

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

 

1. AVAILABILITY

 

(a) Under this Rate Schedule FRSS, Natural provides firm

reverse storage service to any entity (hereinafter called Shipper)

which: (1) submits to Natural a valid request as defined in Section 3

hereof; and (2) executes a Firm Reverse Storage Service Agreement

(FRSS Agreement) with Natural applicable to service under this Rate

Schedule FRSS. The form of FRSS Agreement is contained in this

Tariff. There is no limitation on the number of FRSS Agreements any

one Shipper may have.

 

(b) Shipper shall arrange separately for the transportation

to inject gas into storage in connection with service hereunder, as

further provided in Section 8(b) of this Rate Schedule FRSS.

 

(c) A Shipper may elect delivered storage service or a

storage-only option. A Shipper selecting the storage-only option

hereunder shall arrange separately for transportation service upon

withdrawal of gas from storage.

 

2. APPLICABILITY, CHARACTER AND PRIORITY OF SERVICE

 

(a) This Rate Schedule FRSS defines a firm reverse storage

service. Unless Shipper elects the storage-only option, service

hereunder encompasses the delivery of gas withdrawn from storage to

the Delivery Point(s) in the FRSS Agreement. The Shipper under an

FRSS Agreement has firm summer withdrawal rights (during the

Withdrawal Period defined in Section 5.1 hereof), followed by firm

winter injection rights which must be used in satisfying Shipper's

obligation to replace the gas withdrawn the prior summer (such firm

injections to be made during the Injection Period defined in Section

5.2 of this Rate Schedule FRSS). Under this Rate Schedule FRSS, gas

must be withdrawn before Shipper can tender injections. Firm

withdrawal rights are available on a no-notice basis within the

rights defined in Sections 5 and 7 of this Rate Schedule FRSS.

Shipper must separately arrange for transportation to effectuate

injections and must nominate injections. A Shipper selecting the

storage-only option must separately arrange for transportation

service to effectuate withdrawals, and must nominate such withdrawals

except to the extent Shipper has no-notice rights under Section

7.5(b) of this Rate Schedule. This Rate Schedule FRSS shall apply to

all gas withdrawn by Natural and delivered to or for the account of

Shipper pursuant to an FRSS Agreement.
