3.1 A request for service under this Rate Schedule FTS shall

be valid as of the date received if it complies with this Section

3.1 and contains adequate information on all of the items specified

in Section 3.2, subject to any necessary verification of such

information and to the following:


(a) A request shall not be valid and KMIP shall not be

required to grant any such request: (1) for which adequate capacity

is not available on any portion of KMIP's System necessary to

provide such service; (2) as to which KMIP does not have the

operational capability to effect receipt, transportation and/or

delivery on a firm basis consistent with the terms and conditions of

this Rate Schedule FTS; (3) which would require the construction,

modification, expansion, or acquisition of any facilities; provided,

however, that KMIP may agree on a basis not unduly discriminatory to

construct, modify, expand, or acquire facilities to enable it to

perform such services; (4) unless and until Shipper has provided

KMIP with the information required in Section 3.2 hereof; (5) if

KMIP determines, based on the credit analysis referenced in Section

3.2(f), that Shipper does not possess sufficient financial stability

to make it reasonably likely the service provided hereunder will be

paid for on a timely basis; (6) if the service requested would not

comply with this Rate Schedule FTS; or (7) if the service requested

is at less than the applicable maximum rate; provided, however, that

KMIP may agree to provide service hereunder at a discount consistent

with this Rate Schedule FTS. Nothing herein is intended to govern

the scheduling and/or curtailment of service once a request for

service has been granted pursuant to this Section and while an FTS

Agreement is in effect. Such scheduling and curtailment are governed

by the General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff.


(b) KMIP shall promptly notify Shipper if it cannot

satisfy an otherwise valid request, in whole or in part, due to lack

of capacity or System capability or if the request is incomplete or

does not comply with this Rate Schedule FTS. Any request shall be

null and void unless it is substantially complete and complies with

this Rate Schedule FTS. In the event a request is substantially but

not entirely complete, KMIP shall inform Shipper in writing of the

specific items needed to complete the FTS Agreement, after which

Shipper shall have fifteen (15) days to provide the specified

information. In the event such information is not received by KMIP

within fifteen (15) days, Shipper's request shall be null and void.
