8.1 FIRM SERVICE (Continued)


(f) Flexible Receipt and Delivery Point(s) (Continued)


(iii)Re-designation of Existing Primary Points. Unless

conditioned by the applicable rate schedule, firm Shippers,

including Acquiring Shippers with express permission from the

Releasing Shipper to do so, may request to re-designate

primary point rights to any rate zone pursuant to the

following procedures. Transporter will grant such requests

on a first come/first served basis if firm capacity is

available to and at the requested points, the change will not

harm other firm Shippers, and the change is operationally

feasible. Requests for sales of capacity involving

incremental service will have priority over re-designation


(A) When a Shipper desires to re-designate primary point

rights, the Shipper must agree to the rate conditions

of Section 8.1(g)(i), the creditworthiness provisions

of Section 4.16, and the other conditions of this

Section. Unless otherwise agreed by Transporter on a

not unduly discriminatory basis, a Shipper may only

request to re-designate over an annual period either a

fixed and constant percentage of its monthly TCD or a

fixed and constant daily contract quantity.

1. Pursuant to Section 5.7 of the GT&C, when Shipper

requests re-designation of primary D-

Code/delivery point rights, such Shipper's

request shall include the MDQ at the D-Code level

and the related meter CMQs within that D-Code.


(B) A firm Shipper may submit only one re-designation

request at a time for the same TSA; however, a firm

Shipper wishing to re-designate a primary point for a

period of three Months or less may submit a request,

subject to the other conditions of this Section

8.1(f)(iii), to re-designate to a new primary point and

simultaneously submit a request to re-designate back to

the original primary point at the end of the re-

designation period.


(C) When a Receipt or Delivery Point is re-designated, the

related path rights are restated to reflect the newly

created Primary Receipt-to-Delivery Flow Path.
