for up to one year prior to Transporter filing for certificate
approval or requesting initiation of the Commission's NEPA Pre-Filing

Gas Act, and thereafter until such expansion is placed into service.
Transporter shall, on a limited-term basis up to the in-service date
of the expansion project, make available any capacity reserved under
this section in accordance with Section 14 of these General Terms and
A service agreement for capacity available on a limited-term basis up
to the in-service date of the expansion project shall not be a
Qualifying Agreement for purposes of Section 15 of these General Terms

section, Transporter shall first make such capacity available pursuant
to Section 14 of these General Terms and Conditions.
