deducting volumes of working gas in storage as of April 1,

1993 as reflected in CEGT's FERC Form 8 filed April 6, 1993

been effective during the 1993 Injection Period, shall

be transferred to Rate Schedule FSS Shippers at

costs shall be allocated among Rate Schedule FSS

Shippers based on the ratio of each Shipper's Maximum

Storage Quantity to the sum of Maximum Storage

Quantities for all Rate Schedule FSS Shippers;

Shipper's Contract Delivery Demand level, a portion of
