(c) Shipper must establish its entitlement to a Regulatory Restructuring Reduction Option by
demonstrating that the provisions of Section 42(a) have been met. For purposes of establishing the
requirement that Shipper cannot release the capacity under the provisions of Transporter's Tariff, Shipper
must demonstrate that the capacity has been posted on Transporter's EBB for thirty (30) days and that no
Shipper has agreed to purchase the capacity, in whole or in part, at the rate provided for under the relevant
Service Agreement(s) (or a greater rate) and for the full remaining term of that Service Agreement(s). Shipper
must provide Transporter with sixty (60) days written notice of its intent to exercise the Regulatory
Restructuring Reduction Option. The effective date of the Regulatory Restructuring Reduction Option for
transportation service not associated with storage will be the latter of the effective date of the Regulatory
Restructuring or the end of the sixty (60) day written notice period. For storage service and associated
storage transportation Service Agreements, unless otherwise agreed to by Transporter and Shipper, Shipper must
provide written notice to Transporter no less than sixty (60) days prior to March 31 of any Service Agreement
year of its intent to exercise its Regulatory Restructuring Reduction Option as of the upcoming March 31.
Transporter will utilize the sixty (60) days to verify that the Shipper is entitled to the Regulatory
Restructuring Reduction Option. If Transporter determines that Shipper is not so entitled, Transporter will
provide written notice as soon as possible, but in no event later than 5 business days after the end of the
initial sixty (60) day period.
(d) The details of any mutual agreement between Transporter and Shipper shall be reflected in the
appropriate blanks in a Service Agreement between the parties and shall be posted on Transporter's EBB in
accordance with the Commission's Regulations.
(e) Transporter shall be under no obligation to grant any request for a Regulatory Restrucuring
Reduction Option, but Transporter shall not unduly discriminate against Shippers when determining whether to
mutually agree to a Regulatory Restructuring Reduction Option.
(f) Any portions of any Service Agreement that is subject to termination in accordance with the
provisions of this section and that are necessary to correct any natural gas imbalances or make any payments
required under the Service Agreement as required by the General Terms and Conditions will survive the
termination until such time as the balancing or payment has been accomplished.
