4.2 Capacity Reserved for Future Expansion/Extension Projects.

Transporter may elect to reserve for future expansion/extension

projects, any unsubscribed capacity or capacity under expiring or

terminating Firm Transportation Service Agreements ("FTSAs") where

such FTSAs do not have a right of first refusal ("ROFR") or Shipper

does not exercise its ROFR.


(a) Capacity may be reserved up to one year prior to the date of

filing for certificate approval for construction of proposed

expansion or extension facilities, and thereafter until all

expansion/extension facilities related to the certificate

filing are placed into service.


(b) Transporter shall conduct an open season for the

expansion/extension within one year prior to or following the

date that Transporter posts such capacity as being reserved.

Transporter will not, absent Commission approval, accept

advance payments to reserve capacity under this Section 4.2.


(c) If Transporter elects to reserve capacity, it will notify

Shippers of its intent as part of its posting of capacity on

its EBB. Transporter's posting for reserved capacity for

future expansion/extension projects shall include the following

information: (i) a description of the project for which the

capacity will be reserved; (ii) the total quantity of capacity

to be reserved; (iii) the location of the proposed reserved

capacity on the pipeline system; (iv) whether, and if so when,

Transporter anticipates that an open season for the capacity

will be held or the reserved capacity will otherwise be posted

for bids; (v) the projected in-service date of the new

facilities; and (vi) on an ongoing basis, how much of the

reserved capacity has been sold on a limited-term basis that

would otherwise be eligible for a ROFR. If the

expansion/extension project still requires the construction of

facilities given the amount of reserved capacity, then

Transporter shall post a non-binding solicitation for turnback

capacity no later than 90 days after the close of the expansion

project open season, specifying the minimum term for a response

to the solicitation. Transporter shall make reasonable efforts

to notify shippers of any material changes in the scope of the
