GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

have out-of-path secondary Receipt Point rights in the Midcontinent and

Amarillo Mainline Receipt Zones. These additional secondary Receipt

Point rights could be used only in conjunction with deliveries into the

Market Delivery Zones or to the storage point in the zone of receipt.

 

(d) The segment in the rate zone furthest upstream

in relation to direction of flow for the primary path under the

Agreement being segmented shall have the pooling and storage points for

that rate zone. This restriction on access to pooling and storage points

relates only to allowable nominations, not to points under the contract

or the definition of any segment. Notwithstanding the first sentence of

this subsection (d), Natural shall allow both the upstream and

downstream segments to have access to the pooling or storage point

within the zone of segmentation, provided that either (i) the pooling

point is the only delivery point which may be used during the period of

segmentation by the upstream segment with respect to the segmented

capacity and the pooling point is the only receipt point which may be

used during the period of segmentation for the downstream segment with

respect to the segmented capacity; or (ii) the storage point is the only

delivery point which may be used during the period of segmentation by

the upstream segment with respect to the segmented capacity and the

storage point is the only receipt point which may be used during the

period of segmentation for the downstream segment with respect to the

segmented capacity. These restrictions on the points which may actually

be used in the segmentation must be part of the capacity release posting

or the nomination provided to Natural, as applicable, in connection with

the segmentation. This restriction on points relates solely to the

points which may be used on the upstream and downstream segment during a

period of segmentation as a condition of access to the pooling point by

both upstream and downstream segments in the zone of segmentation and is

not predicated on the specific primary point or secondary point rights

under the Agreement being segmented so long as the primary path being

segmented extends into the relevant zone. In the event a primary firm

capacity path is segmented at a point other than a pooling or storage

point, the segment which has the pooling and storage points for the rate

zone will have interruptible priority for transportation to the storage

point in the zone where the path was segmented, but will have out-of-

path secondary point priority from the storage point in that zone. No

firm rights on injection will exist unless the path of the segment

separately qualifies for primary point rights.

 

(e) The direction of flow for path segments must be the

same direction of flow as for the original path unless the Shipper

establishes new primary points which represent a flow reversal, which a

Shipper may do if operationally feasible and if the requisite capacity

is available, applying the point change procedures in Section
