This Section 4 applies to the operation of El Paso's system and

sets forth the procedures for scheduling of receipts and deliveries

and allocation of pipeline system capacity or any portion thereof

among Shippers receiving transportation service from El Paso under

executed Transportation Service Agreements pursuant to this Tariff

and transportation arrangements included in El Paso's FERC Gas

Tariff, Volume No. 2.


4.1 Scheduling of Receipts and Deliveries


(a) For scheduling purposes, Day 1 shall be utilized only

for scheduling firm requests using primary receipt

points and primary delivery points and Day 2 shall be

utilized, where additional capacity exists, first for

scheduling any additional firm requests using primary

receipt points and primary delivery points, secondly for

scheduling firm requests using either alternate receipt

points or alternate delivery points and third for

scheduling any interruptible requests. The following

procedure shall be utilized to schedule transportation

on El Paso's system:


Day 1 - On Day 1, Shippers shall verify their requests

for firm transportation from primary receipt points to

primary delivery points and cause the Operators to make

confirmations of supply. El Paso shall utilize

confirmed volumes, not to exceed requests, to determine

capacity requirements; and, where necessary, the

capacity allocation procedure set forth in Section 4.2

hereof shall be followed. However, when the

confirmation from the last well causes the total

confirmation to exceed the request, El Paso shall alter

the confirmation on the last well as required for the

total confirmation to equal requested volumes in

accordance with the prioritized list of wells, if any,

provided by each Shipper. El Paso shall then

communicate electronically or via facsimile to the

Shippers and Operators the scheduled quantities and any

additional capacity availability. Such notification

normally shall be completed prior to the beginning of

business on Day 2.
