to transport and deliver at designated delivery points on behalf of

Shipper, natural gas up to a specified volume, which will be

designated as the Transportation Quantity. Each FT Agreement will

specify the Primary Receipt and Delivery Points available for use

under the FT Agreement and the Maximum Daily Quantity ("MDQ") at each

Primary Delivery and Receipt Point; and

of Transporter's system necessary to provide the service.

firm capacity is available, to any Shipper in the order in which each
