FSS RATE SCHEDULE
Firm Storage Service
3. RATE (Cont'd)
3.4 During withdrawal of gas hereunder, Transporter will retain a
quantity of gas equal to the product obtained by multiplying the
quantity of gas withdrawn by the percentage set forth on Sheet No.
6 as "surface operating allowance."
3.5 Except as provided by valid rule or regulation, Transporter is not
obligated to offer to store or store gas at any rates or allowances
less than the maximum rates and allowances specified for this rate
schedule on Sheet No. 6; however, nothing precludes Transporter
from charging a rate between the maximum and minimum rate or
retaining an allowance less than the allowance specified for
service under this Rate Schedule as set forth on Sheet No. 6.
4. BILLING ADJUSTMENTS
If during the Injection Period Transporter is unable to inject into
storage quantities of gas nominated during such period by Shipper for
injection and made available to Transporter, then the Storage Demand
Charge and the Storage Capacity Charge shall be reduced in the following
If, at the end of the Injection Period, Shipper's Storage Gas Balance is
less than Shipper's Maximum Storage Quantity due solely to Transporter's
inability to inject gas within the limitations set forth in this Rate
Schedule, then the Storage Capacity Charge applicable for the ensuing
Withdrawal Period and Injection Period shall be that part of the total
Storage Capacity Charge herein provided which Shipper's Storage Balance
as of such date bears to Shipper's Storage Capacity.
5. STORAGE FIELD LOSSES
In the event of a loss of gas from one or more storage fields utilized
by Transporter resulting from force majeure, such loss shall be
allocated among Transporter and each Shipper receiving service under the
SS-1, SS-2, ESS, FSS or ISS Rate Schedule in proportion to the quanti-
ties of gas (excluding base gas) of each in storage immediately prior
thereto as reasonably determined by Transporter, and if such extraordi-
nary loss exceeds the top gas balances of Transporter and all such
Shippers, such excess will be deemed to be from Transporter's base gas.
