end-use facility. To accept such responsibility, the entity must

provide Natural with written notification which includes: (i)

written consent by the affected Shipper or operator; (ii)

specification of any limits on the entity's responsibility; (iii)

the term over which the notification is effective; and (iv) an

identification of adequate resources (such as no-notice services at

a point) which will be used to support the assumption of

responsibility. Any notification or change in notification is

effective on the second Business Day after delivery to Natural.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Natural may reject a notification

upon written notice to such entity and any affected Shipper if such

notification fails to comply with this Section or contains any
