5.1 Generally, Equitrans will inject gas into storage on behalf of

Customer during the period from the beginning of the gas day on

April 1 through the end of the gas day on October 31 ("the

injection period'"). However, individual service agreements may

specify different injection periods.


5.2 The maximum injection quantity of gas which Equitrans is

obligated on any day to inject into storage for any Customer

under this Rate Schedule shall be the MDIQ specified in the

applicable storage service agreement, which shall be calculated

as 1/200th of the Customer's TASQ. If operating conditions permit,

Equitrans may allow any Customer, upon request to inject gas into

storage in excess of the Customer's MDIQ. Equitrans shall be

obligated to accept gas for storage for Customer's account only

when and to the extent that Customer's storage inventory is less

than its TASQ.


Scheduling of injections including overruns shall be provided by

Customer to Equitrans in accordance with Section 8 of the General

5.4 Customer is required to inject ninety-seven percent (97%) of

its TASQ under this Rate Schedule by the end of the injection

period. If the Customer fails to inject up to the level of

97% of its TASQ by the end of the contractual injection

period, the Customer will not be permitted to draw upon the

undelivered storage quantities in the subsequent withdrawal

period and will be subject to a reduced MDWQ during the subsequent

withdrawal period. Depending on the operating conditions of

its storage reservoirs, Equitrans may elect to inject gas into

storage on the Customers behalf, and may assess a Storage

Imbalance Penalty on any quantities so injected, up to the

level of 97% of the Customer's TASQ. The Storage Imbalance Penalty

shall be equal to the cost of acquiring gas for injection into

storage based on the average price of Appalachian spot market gas

delivered to CNG Transmission Corp. and Columbia Gas Transmission

Corp., as such prices shall appear in "Inside FERC's Gas Market

Report", or similar publication, during the period of time that gas
