(e) Transporter may agree to include in a Pre-arranged Service

Agreement provisions permitting prospective reductions or

other specified changes in the capacity commitment and any

such transaction shall be subject to the open season bidding

and NPV evaluation procedures set forth above.


10.5 Linked Firm Service.


(a) Transporter will consider, on a not unduly discriminatory

basis, requests for firm service under Rate Schedules FT,

EFT and PS (firm Pool Transfer) relating to capacity that

is created as a result of transportation service by

Transporter under a Rate Schedule FT-2 Service Agreement

(e.g., due to a backhaul transaction or displacement

transaction under such Service Agreement) ("Linked Firm

Service"). If a Shipper has executed a Service Agreement

with Transporter under Rate Schedule FT-2, such Shipper

shall be given the first opportunity to contract for any

Linked Firm Service capacity created by such transportation

under that Rate Schedule FT-2 Service Agreement and,

provided that Shipper has exercised that right and that

Shipper and Transporter have agreed on the applicable rate

for the Linked Firm Service, shall be awarded such Linked

Firm Service capacity.


(b) Such Linked Firm Service shall be subject to: (i)

Transporter's right not to schedule service in whole or in

part on any Day in which the linked FT-2 Shipper fails to

nominate by 11:45 a.m. in the Timely Nomination Cycle a

quantity equal to at least its applicable MFO; and (ii)

Transporter's right to curtail or interrupt service in

whole or in part on any Day in which a Rate Schedule FT-2

Shipper(s) fails to tender and take delivery of the

scheduled quantities of Gas, at the Receipt and Delivery

Points specified in the executed Rate Schedule FT-2

Agreement(s) (including, but not limited to, Pools and/or

Secondary Receipt and Delivery Points subject to Section

2.7 of Rate Schedule FT-2), up to the FT-2 Shipper's

applicable MFO. Transporter shall notify the Linked Firm

Service Shipper if Linked Firm Service is not scheduled or

is curtailed or interrupted as provided herein.
