GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

contract MDQ under FTS or (where applicable) FTS-G equal to or less

than the original contract MDQ. Such Shipper may, but is not

required to, also rollover the storage portion of such Agreement

(whether or not all or any part of such contract was rolled over

into FTS or FTS-G service) into the corresponding level of service

under Rate Schedule NSS. Finally, any Shipper with an Agreement

which is eligible for rollover hereunder which entered into a new

firm Agreement as a result of transitional procedures which were in

effect prior to October 1, 1999 shall have both unilateral rollover

rights and the right of first refusal under the new Agreement

regardless of its term, but such right shall not extend to a

subsequent rollover Agreement which must be evaluated on a stand-

alone basis as to further rollover. Any rollover right under this

subsection (b) must be exercised pursuant to a notice which

conforms to Section 22.2(a) or Section 22.3, as applicable.

 

(c) If a Shipper submits a written notice which

conforms to Section 22.2(a), such notice shall be binding on

Shipper. Shipper and Natural shall be obligated to sign an

Agreement consistent with such notice; provided, however, that

nothing herein shall be deemed to preclude the parties from

negotiating a more acceptable Agreement by mutual consent which is

not inconsistent with this Tariff.

 

(d) If an Agreement is rolled over pursuant to this

Section 22.2, the Right of First Refusal under Section 22.3 shall

not apply.

 

22.3 RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

 

(a) Any Shipper under a DSS, FTS, FFTS, FTS-G, FRSS or

NSS Agreement with a term of one (1) year or greater shall have the

right to continue receiving service after the expiration of its

existing Agreement if, pursuant to the Right of First Refusal

procedures set forth in this Section 22.3, it matches the price and

term offered for such service by any other bidder; provided,

however, that (irrespective of the price offered by the existing

Shipper or any bidder) Natural shall not be required to provide

service at a discount from its applicable maximum rate unless it

otherwise agrees; and, provided further that if a bid is submitted

for a Negotiated Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula under Section 49

of these General Terms and Conditions, the existing Shipper need

match only the lesser of the value of the bid at the Negotiated
