GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

(f) In the absence of a qualified bid, the rate (within

applicable maximums and minimums) and the term shall be negotiated

between Natural and the Shipper. Capacity must be awarded consistent

with the posted bid criteria and for a value no lower than

previously submitted qualifying bids. No discount or other special

terms shall apply to a rollover Agreement unless Natural and Shipper

mutually agree. Shipper may require that Natural enter into an

Agreement to provide service at the applicable maximum rate for a

term specified by Shipper and running from the date the existing

Agreement expires. Shipper shall have ten (10) days from date on

which Natural notifies it that no acceptable bids were received to

exercise the right set out in the prior sentence or to negotiate a

rollover Agreement with Natural. If the Shipper fails to exercise

such right on a timely basis, the right shall expire, in which case

Natural shall post the capacity as available and the negotiation

procedures hereunder shall terminate. Unless Shipper so elects,

service hereunder shall be terminated and automatically abandoned.

 

(g) If the Shipper is eligible to receive continued

service under this Section 22.3, Natural shall tender a rollover

Agreement which conforms to the requirements of this Tariff prior to

the expiration of the existing Agreement. Shipper and Natural shall

execute such rollover Agreement, or any modified Agreement upon

which Natural and Shipper may mutually agree which is not

inconsistent with this Tariff, within two (2) weeks. If Shipper

fails to execute the rollover Agreement on a timely basis, Shipper

shall (in addition to all other remedies available to Natural for

Shipper's failure to fulfill its obligation to execute such

Agreement) forfeit any right to continuation of service after the

expiration of the existing Agreement.

 

22.4 CONTRACTUAL EXTENSION RIGHTS

 

The term of service under any firm or interruptible

transportation or storage Agreement may be extended pursuant to a

rollover, evergreen or right of first refusal provision in such

Agreement, which provision supersedes any otherwise applicable

rollover or right of first refusal pursuant to this Section. The

parties may negotiate rollover, evergreen or right of first refusal

provisions which differ from this Section. Natural is not obligated

to offer or agree to any such rollover, evergreen or right of first

refusal provisions; provided, however, that to the extent it offers

or agrees to any such provision, it must do so on a non-

discriminatory basis for similarly situated Shippers. Natural posts

such contractual rollover, evergreen or right of first refusal

provision on its Transactional Report in accordance with Section

284.13 of the Commission's regulations.
