GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

(c) (1) SCHEDULING OF INTERRUPTIBLE SERVICES

 

If capacity remains after all gas properly

nominated and confirmed (to the extent nomination is required)

under services described in Sections 5.3(a)(1) and (2) and Sections

5.3(b)(1) and (2) has been scheduled, Natural shall schedule the

remaining interruptible services (including authorized overrun). To

the extent there is insufficient capacity available to schedule all

properly nominated and confirmed interruptible services (including

authorized overrun), Natural shall identify which nominated

services are affected by the lack of capacity and shall schedule

all affected interruptible services in accordance with the

following sequence:

 

(i) Natural shall schedule interruptible

services (including authorized overrun) based on the rate to be

paid, from highest to lowest daily rate, with service for which the

highest daily rate being paid is scheduled first. Any Shipper

paying the maximum rate applicable to its service (or revenue equal

to or greater than the applicable maximum rate pursuant to a

Negotiated Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula) shall be afforded

highest priority even if a Shipper which has agreed to a Negotiated

Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula is paying a higher unit rate.

 

(ii) In the event there is insufficient

capacity to schedule all services for which the same rate is to be

paid, Natural shall allocate the available capacity pro rata based

on the confirmed nominated volume.

 

(2) CURTAILMENT OF INTERRUPTIBLE SERVICES

 

In interrupting or curtailing interruptible

services (including authorized overrun) covered by this Section 5.7

due to lack of capacity, Natural shall curtail in accordance with

the following priority sequence:

 

(i) Natural shall interrupt services

(including authorized overrun) based on the rate being paid, from

lowest to highest daily rate, with service for which the lowest

daily rate being paid is interrupted first. Any Shipper paying the

maximum rate applicable to its service (or revenue equal to or

greater than the applicable maximum rate pursuant to a Negotiated

Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula) shall be afforded highest priority

even if a Shipper which has agreed to a Negotiated Rate or

Negotiated Rate Formula is paying a higher unit rate.
