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

TRANSMISSION, LLC ("Transporter") and ________________________________________________________



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

as follows:


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

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Commission (Commission), as the same may be amended or superseded in accordance with the rules and regulations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

Interruptible Storage 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.___, 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 the first Day of the first Month

specified in Appendix A and shall continue in full force and effect until the last Day of the last Month

specified in Appendix A. Pre-granted abandonment shall apply upon termination of this Agreement.


Section 3. Rates. Shipper shall pay the charges calculated in accordance with the ISS Rate Schedule

and shall furnish the Retainage percentage specified in Transporter's currently effective Tariff, 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. The Months for which such charges shall be paid, together with the bid Average Monthly Balance and the

bid Commodity Charge which shall be used to calculate such charges are specified in Appendix A. 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.



Section 4. Notices. Notices to Transporter under this Agreement shall be addressed to it at 5151 San

Felipe, Suite 2500, Houston, Texas 77056, Attention: Director, Commercial Services and notices to Shipper shall

be addressed to it at ____________________________________________________, Attention: _____________________,

until changed by either party by written notice.

date hereof, the following Service Agreements: _______________________________.
