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 FSS 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Commission (Commission), as the same may be amended or superseded in accordance with the rules and regulations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. Transporter shall store quantities of gas for Shipper up to but not exceeding Shipper's

Storage Contract Quantity as 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 _________"]. 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.
