THIS AGREEMENT, made and entered into this day of , 20____,by and between COLUMBIA

GAS TRANSMISSION, LLC ("Transporter") and ("Shipper").


WITNESSETH: That in consideration of the mutual covenants herein contained, the parties hereto agree as



Section 1. Service to be Rendered. Transporter shall perform and Shipper shall receive service in accordance

with the provisions of the effective Rate Schedule and applicable General Terms and Conditions of

Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No. 1 (Tariff), on file with the Federal Energy Regulatory

Commission (Commission), as the same may be amended or superseded in accordance with the rules and regulations

of the Commission. The maximum obligation of Transporter to deliver gas hereunder to or for Shipper, the

designation of the points of delivery at which Transporter shall deliver or cause gas to be delivered to or

for Shipper, and the points of receipt at which Shipper shall deliver or cause gas to be delivered, are

specified in Appendix A, as the same may be amended from time to time by agreement between Shipper and

Transporter, or in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Commission. Service hereunder shall be

provided subject to the provisions of Part 284. of Subpart of the Commission's regulations. Shipper

warrants that service hereunder is being provided on behalf of , a local distribution company or

an intrastate pipeline. [For Subpart G service, Shipper warrants that service hereunder is being provided on

behalf of , an interstate pipeline or Shipper].


Section 2. Term. Service under this Agreement shall commence as of [or when

applicable, "This Agreement shall be effective as of the later of ___________ or the date that all of

Transporter's ________________________ (insert project name) facilities necessary to provide firm

transportation service to Shipper have been commissioned, tested, and are ready for service as determined in

Transporter's discretion"] and shall continue in full force and effect until [or,

when applicable, "shall remain in full force and effect for a term of __________"] [or, when applicable to

Rate Schedule ITS, "Service under this Agreement shall commence as of and shall continue

from month to month thereafter until terminated by either Transporter or Shipper upon thirty days prior

notice"]. Pre-granted abandonment shall apply upon termination of this Agreement, subject to any right of

first refusal Shipper may have under the Commission's regulations and Transporter's Tariff.


Section 3. Rates. Shipper shall pay Transporter the charges and furnish Retainage as described in the above-

referenced Rate Schedule, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties in writing and specified as an amendment

to this Service Agreement. Transporter may agree to discount its rate to Shipper below Transporter's maximum

rate, but not less than Transporter's minimum rate. Such discounted rate may apply to: a) specified

quantities (contract demand or commodity quantities); b) specified quantities above or below a certain level

or all quantities if quantities exceed a certain level; c) quantities during specified time periods; d)

quantities at specified points, locations, or other defined geographical areas; e) that a specified discounted

rate will apply in a specified relationship to the quantities actually transported (i.e., that the reservation

charge will be adjusted in a specified relationship to quantities actually transported); and f) production

and/or reserves committed by the Shipper. In addition, the discount agreement may include a provision that if

one rate component which was at or below the applicable maximum rate at the time the discount agreement was

executed subsequently exceeds the applicable maximum rate due to a change in Transporter's maximum rate so

that such rate component must be adjusted downward to equal the new applicable maximum rate, then other rate

components may be adjusted upward to achieve the agreed overall rate, so long as none of the resulting rate

components exceed the maximum rate applicable to that rate component. Such changes to rate components shall

be applied prospectively, commencing with the date a Commission order accepts revised tariff sheets. However,

nothing contained herein shall be construed to alter a refund obligation under applicable law for any period

during which rates which had been charged under a discount agreement exceeded rates which ultimately are found

to be just and reasonable.
