(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.
