be eligible for service hereunder, the Shipper must have and maintain

in effect an FTS, FTS-G, or ITS Agreement to which the IBS Agreement

except to the limited extent provided under Section 7(c) hereof, but

may be any other primary or secondary Delivery Point available under

the linked transportation Agreement; provided that the Delivery Point

must be consistent with the location of the end-use facility. An IBS

Agreement may only be linked to one transportation Agreement. A

transportation Agreement may have more than one IBS Agreement linked

to it, provided that the other requirements of this Rate Schedule IBS
