RATE SCHEDULE BESS

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

 

6.3 (a) Natural shall have the unilateral right to file

with any appropriate regulatory authority and make changes effective

in (1) the rates and charges applicable under this Rate Schedule

BESS, including both the level and design of such rates and charges;

or (2) the terms and conditions of this Rate Schedule BESS. Natural

agrees that Shipper may protest or contest the aforementioned

filings, or may seek authorization from duly constituted regulatory

authorities for such adjustment of Natural's existing FERC Gas

Tariff as may be found necessary to assure that its provisions are

just and reasonable.

 

(b) If, at any time and from time to time, the FERC or

any other governmental authority having jurisdiction in the premises

allows or permits Natural to collect, or to negotiate to collect, a

higher rate for the service hereunder, the rate shall, subject to

any contrary provision of the BESS Agreement or a separate discount

agreement, be increased to the highest such rate. Should additional

documentation be required in order for Natural to collect such

highest rate, Shipper shall execute or provide such documentation

within fifteen (15) days after a written request by Natural. If, at

any time and from time to time, the FERC or any other governmental

authority having jurisdiction in the premises requires Natural to

charge a lower rate for transportation service hereunder, the rate

shall be decreased to such reduced rate.

 

6.4 Natural may from time to time and at any time, upon

twenty-four (24) hours' verbal or written notice, subject to any

provisions on discounting in the BESS Agreement or in a separate

discount agreement, charge any individual Shipper for service under

this Rate Schedule BESS a rate which is lower than the applicable

maximum rate set forth in this Tariff; provided, however, that such

rate charged may not be less than the applicable minimum rate for

service under Rate Schedule BESS set forth in this Tariff. Natural

will confirm any verbal notice of the applicable charge in writing.

Such notification shall specifically state the effective date of

such rate change and the quantity of gas so affected. Unless

otherwise agreed in the BESS Agreement or in a separate discount

agreement, Natural may at any time further change such rate (subject

to any restrictions as to maximum or minimum rates set out in this

Tariff, the BESS agreement and/or a discount agreement) upon twenty-

four (24) hours' verbal notice to Shipper, which notice shall be

confirmed in writing. Such notification shall specifically state

the effective date of such rate change and the quantity of gas so

affected. Natural shall file with the Commission any and all

reports as required by the Commission's Regulations with respect to

the institution or discontinuance of any discount.
