MASTER AUTO PAL AGREEMENT
THIS MASTER AUTO PAL AGREEMENT ("Agreement") is made and entered into this ___ day of _______, ____, by
and between COLUMBIA GULF TRANSMISSION COMPANY ("Transporter") and ____________________________ ("Shipper").
WITNESSETH: That in consideration of the mutual covenants herein contained, the parties hereto agree
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, Second 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Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission), as the same may be amended or superseded in accordance with the rules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 hereto.
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; and 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). 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.
