RATE SCHEDULE FRSS

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

 

(g) (1) A Shipper may release all or a portion of its

capacity under an FRSS Agreement pursuant to Natural's Capacity Release

Program to the extent permitted by, and subject to the terms and

conditions contained in, this subsection and Section 19 of the General

Terms and Conditions of this Tariff. Storage and transportation rights

under this Rate Schedule FRSS may be released separately (except for a

Shipper selecting the storage-only option, which has no transportation

service to release), provided that the separately released

transportation capacity may not be segmented.

 

(2) A Shipper under Rate Schedule FRSS may only release

its remaining rights; i.e., its rights not previously utilized and not

already released to others. Once capacity has been released, the

remaining rights of the releasing Shipper shall be reduced by a volume

equal to the volume of the rights released. No release may result in

any Shipper or in Shippers in the aggregate (releasing Shipper together

with all Replacement Shippers) having rights in excess of those

available under this Tariff and the FRSS Agreement to the releasing

Shipper prior to any release.

 

(3) The FRSS Agreement shall specify a transportation

path for purposes of the separate release of transportation (except for

a Shipper selecting the storage-only option, which has no

transportation service to release). The replacement Shipper must

nominate such separately released transportation in the same manner as

under Rate Schedule FTS (but such Shipper shall have only the rights

under Rate Schedule FRSS and not any additional rights under Rate

Schedule FTS). All separate releases of transportation rights in the

aggregate are limited to the aggregate rights of the Shipper under the

FRSS Agreement (not more than 10 or 20 times MDQ over any Withdrawal

Period, as applicable) to which the releases relate. If transportation

rights are released separately, the releasing Shipper's rights to have

gas delivered hereunder shall be reduced accordingly.

 

(4) The Shipper may release storage rights separately

and, if transportation rights embedded in delivered storage service

are released separately, the releasing Shipper can utilize or release

the residual storage rights, but the transportation to take such gas

away from the storage point on withdrawal (as well as transportation

to the storage point on injection) must be separately contracted.

All separate releases of storage rights in the aggregate are limited

to the aggregate storage rights of the Shipper under the FRSS

Agreement (not more than 10 or 20 times MDQ over any Withdrawal

Period, as applicable) to which the releases relate. Storage

released separately must be nominated in the same manner as under

Rate Schedule NSS (but the replacement Shipper shall have only the

rights under Rate Schedule FRSS and not any additional rights under
