6.2 Capacity Allocation Procedure (Continued)

(a) Firm Allocation (Continued)

(vi) If any firm Shipper notifies Transporter that it is

experiencing a bona fide emergency that would result in

irreparable injury to life or property or to provide

minimum plant protection absent availability of

additional pipeline capacity, Transporter shall treat

the confirmed request for additional capacity to meet

the requirements of the emergency in the same manner as

it treats confirmed requests for capacity made by

Shippers identified in Section 6.2(a)(i) of the GT&C.

A Shipper with a TCD shall not be entitled to emergency

service in excess of its TCD. The emergency capacity

available to a Shipper with a Rate Schedule FT-2 full

requirements TSA shall be determined as that capacity

required to serve a verifiable emergency in excess of

the quantity initially scheduled by Transporter for

said Shipper. The total service provided to such Rate

Schedule FT-2 Shipper shall not be entitled to

emergency service to exceed 10,000 Dth per Day. The

Shipper shall not use this provision to take advantage

of price differences between production basins.

Transporter shall provide service under this provision

at a Receipt Point causing the least amount of

interruption among its Shippers. An authorized

representative of the Shipper must provide a sworn

statement to Transporter by facsimile, within 24 hours

of the original notification, that states: (1) the

details and estimated length of the emergency; (2) that

all sources of gas available to Shipper are being used;

(3) that all interruptible services are unavailable;

and (4) that no alternate fuel can be used. Shipper

shall notify Transporter immediately upon cessation of

the emergency. Allocation of capacity pursuant to this

provision is not an authorization to confiscate or

divert any shipper's supplies. Transporter shall have

no responsibility hereunder to furnish gas supplies for

such emergency nor shall Transporter have any liability

if Shipper fails to make adequate gas supplies

available for such purpose. In the event such Shipper

does not arrange for adequate supplies during the

emergency, then any overpulls attributable to the

emergency shall be billed at the Critical Condition

Daily Imbalance Charge specified in Section 11.1 and

all amounts received shall be credited pursuant to

Section 14.2(a).
