purpose of sponsoring Research, Development and

the benefit of gas consumers and the general public.


For the purpose of funding of GRI's approved expenditures,

Schedules, provided, however, such charge shall not be

applicable to Shippers which are interstate pipelines and

if a downstream pipeline collects a GRI Surcharge on the

same gas.


25.2 Basis of the GRI Surcharge: Crossroads' Rate Schedules

shall include an increment for a GRI Surcharge for R&D. Such

GRI Surcharge shall be that increment, adjusted to

Crossroads' measurement basis (dekatherms), which has been

approved by FERC Orders approving GRI's R&D expenditures.

The GRI Surcharge shall be reflected on Sheet No. 6 of this



25.3 Filing Procedure: The initial GRI Surcharge or any
