4.1 Scheduling of Receipts and Deliveries (Continued)


Day 2 - Where additional capacity exists, Shippers shall

have the opportunity, in accordance with the allocation

procedures set forth in Section 4.2 of this Section, to

request firm transportation for additional quantities of

gas using primary receipt points and primary delivery

points, then for firm requests using either alternate

receipt points or alternate delivery points, or both, and

then for requests for interruptible transportation.

Shippers shall cause the Operator to make corresponding

confirmations of supply. Such scheduling shall apply only

to the additional capacity and shall not cause any change

in the prior sequencing of deliveries. El Paso shall then

normally communicate electronically or via facsimile the

final scheduling of gas to Shippers and Operators prior to

the beginning of business on Day 3.


Day 3 - Shippers shall cause the Operators to tender the

scheduled quantities of natural gas to El Paso at Receipt

Points, plus volumes retained by El Paso for fuel and

shrinkage as provided for in the applicable transportation

rate schedule and El Paso shall deliver the scheduled

quantities of natural gas, for Shippers' accounts, at

Delivery Points. However, in the event an unexpected

capacity constraint occurs, then El Paso shall allocate

capacity in accordance with the applicable provisions of

Section 4.2(d).


(b) Operating conditions may, from time to time, cause a

temporary and unintentional imbalance between the

quantities (in dth's) of natural gas that El Paso receives

and the quantities of natural gas that Shipper takes under

the executed Transportation Service Agreement. Shipper

shall schedule gas attributable to imbalances when

El Paso, in its reasonable discretion and in a

nondiscriminatory manner, determines that it can

practicably receive or deliver such imbalance.


(c) El Paso shall not be obligated to accept, for the account

of Shipper, from any receipt point, a quantity of gas that

is less than fifteen (15) dth per day, so as to avoid

measurement problems relative to small volumes and

disproportionate administrative burdens.
