GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

(1) Natural shall first schedule all firm

services (including service under an FFTS Agreement at Shipper's MDQ on

an Available Day or at the reduced volume on a partial Available Day)

within MDQ at primary points and at secondary points within a primary

point path where no point constraint exists. To the extent capacity does

not exist to provide for all volumes nominated by Shippers on a firm

basis within MDQ at primary points and at secondary points along any path

defined by primary points where no point constraint exists under all firm

Rate Schedules, plus all firm no-notice rights in excess of such

nominations, available capacity shall be allocated pro rata based on MDQ

(including MDQ under an FFTS Agreement on an Available Day or the reduced

MDQ on a partial Available Day) on any portion of Natural's system

affected by a capacity constraint (capacity allocated to any Agreement

shall be limited to confirmed nominations except to the extent of no-

notice rights available under such Agreement). If Natural cannot

schedule all such nominations or if Natural anticipates that it cannot

accommodate all such nominations plus the firm no-notice rights it

expects may be utilized on that Day, Natural shall limit the scheduling

of such nominations and the exercise of firm no-notice rights for that

Day on a pro rata basis, based on MDQ and shall post such limitations on

the Informational Postings portion of its Interactive Website. Such

posting shall also include the following information: the reason(s) for

the service limitation; the expected duration of the service limitation;

and the actions which Natural is taking to restore firm service. Notice

of a service limitation will be provided through Electronic Notice

Delivery consistent with NAESB Standards as adopted in Section 48 of

these General Terms and Conditions and will be posted on the

Informational Postings portion of Natural's Interactive Website. Where

feasible, Natural will endeavor to provide and post the notice before

4:00 p.m. Central Time or otherwise will endeavor to notify Shippers by

4:00 p.m. Central Time that they should check the Informational Postings

portion of Natural's Interactive Website again at a specified later time

to see whether a service limitation will be in effect for the next Day.

In addition to the posting, Natural must attempt to give actual notice of

a service limitation to affected firm Shippers via telefax or telephone

(provided a Shipper has given the numbers to Natural as required in

Section 23.1 of these General Terms and Conditions). If feasible, such

notice should be given at least four (4) hours prior to the start of the

Day during which a service limitation will be effective as to a Shipper.

 

(2) Natural shall next schedule firm service at

other secondary points. Where capacity is not sufficient to grant all

such secondary point requests, the secondary point priorities set out in

Section 5.5 shall govern.
