Receipt Pressure, Assumed Atmospheric Pressure

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

Natural gas to be delivered to Natural at the Receipt Point(s) shall be at a delivery pressure

sufficient to enter Natural's pipeline facilities at the pressure maintained from time to time, but Shipper

shall not deliver gas at a pressure in excess of the Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure (MAOP) stated for

each Receipt Point in Natural's Catalog of Points. The measuring party shall use or cause to be used an

assumed atmospheric pressure corresponding to the elevation at such Receipt Point(s).

 

Rates

-----

Except as otherwise provided below or in any written agreement(s) between the parties in effect during

the term hereof, Shipper shall pay Natural the applicable maximum rate(s) and all other lawful charges as

specified in Natural's applicable rate schedule. Shipper and Natural may agree that Shipper shall pay a rate

other than the applicable maximum rate so long as such rate is between the applicable maximum and minimum

rates specified for such service in the Tariff. Natural and Shipper may agree that a specific discounted

rate will apply only to certain volumes under the agreement. The parties may agree that a specified

discounted rate will apply only to specified volumes (MDQ or commodity volumes) under the agreement; that a

specified discounted rate will apply only if specified volumes are achieved or only if the volumes do not

exceed a specified level; that a specified discounted rate will apply only during specified periods of the

year or for a specifically defined period; that a specified discounted rate will apply only to specified

points, zones, mainline segments, supply areas, transportation paths, markets or other defined geographical

area(s); that a specified discounted rate(s) will apply in a specified relationship to the volumes actually

transported (i.e., that the reservation charge will be adjusted in a specified relationship to volumes

actually transported); and/or that the discount will apply only to reserves dedicated by Shipper to Natural's

system. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no discount agreement may provide that an agreed discount as to a

certain volume level will be invalidated if the Shipper transports an incremental volume above that agreed

level. In addition, the discount agreement may include a provision that if one rate component which was at or

below the applicable maximum rate at the time the discount agreement was executed subsequently exceeds the

applicable maximum rate due to a change in Natural's maximum rates so that such rate component must be

adjusted downward to equal the new applicable maximum rate, then other rate components may be adjusted upward

to achieve the agreed overall rate, so long as none of the resulting rate components exceed the maximum rate

applicable to that rate component. Such changes to rate components shall be applied prospectively,

commencing with the date a Commission order accepts revised tariff sheets. However, nothing contained herein

shall be construed to alter a refund obligation under applicable law for any period during which rates which

had been charged under a discount agreement exceeded rates which ultimately are found to be just and

reasonable. If the parties agree upon a rate other than the applicable maximum rate, such written Agreement

shall specify that the parties mutually agree either: (1) that the agreed rate is a discount rate; or (2)

that the agreed rate is a Negotiated Rate (or Negotiated Rate Formula). In the event that the parties agree

upon a Negotiated Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula, this Agreement shall be subject to Section 49 of the

General Terms and Conditions of Natural's Tariff.
