Master Auto PAL Agreement No. __________

Control No. ____________________



THIS MASTER AUTO PAL AGREEMENT ("Agreement") is 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 service in

accordance with the provisions of (1) the effective PAL Rate Schedule; (2) the 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Energy Regulatory Commission ("Commission"), as the same may be amended or superseded in accordance with the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; and (3) the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the

Transaction Confirmation Sheet, referred to as Appendix A hereto, which is incorporated in, and made a part of,

this Agreement. Transporter shall park or loan quantities of gas for Shipper as specified in Appendix A to this

Agreement 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 Subpart B or G of Part 284 of the Commission's regulations.


This Master Auto PAL Agreement, and the Appendix A subject to this Master Auto PAL Agreement, will comprise the

contractual agreement of the parties. If the Master Auto PAL Agreement terminates, the Appendix A subject to

this Master Auto PAL Agreement will be deemed terminated on the same date.


Section 2. Term. Service under this Agreement shall commence on the Term Commencement Date and shall

terminate on the Term Ending Date set forth in Appendix A hereto. Pre-granted abandonment shall apply upon

termination of this Agreement.


Section 3. Rates. Shipper shall pay Transporter the rates as set forth in Appendix A. 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.


Section 4. Quantities and Points of Service. Transporter shall, as specified in Appendix A, park or

loan quantities of natural gas at mutually agreed upon point(s) of service, up to a Maximum Cumulative Park/Loan

Quantity of ___________ Dth. The Maximum Cumulative Park/Loan Quantity shall represent Shipper's maximum

account balance (negative or positive) at any time under this Agreement.


Section 5. Notices. Notices to Transporter under this Agreement shall be addressed to it at the

address set forth in Appendix A, and notices to Shipper shall be addressed to it at the address set forth in

Appendix A, until changed by either party by written notice.
