2.4 The injection, storage and withdrawal of gas pursuant to this

Rate Schedule shall have a lower priority than any and all

scheduled firm storage services, but superior to any and all

overrun service requested by firm storage Customers. The

Customer is required to schedule the injections and withdrawals

of gas under this Rate Schedule in accordance with Section 8 of

the General Terms and Conditions of Equitrans' FERC Gas Tariff.

If nominations for service under this Rate Schedule exceed, on

any day, Equitrans' ability to provide such service in

conjunction with other nominated storage services, Equitrans

will apply the service priorities set forth in Sections 6.9 and

8.5 of the General Terms and Conditions in determining what

service is scheduled.


2.5 Gas which is scheduled for daily injection or withdrawal is

nonetheless subject to interruption based upon changes in firm

storage service nominations received by Equitrans or when

necessary to maintain the operational integrity of Equitrans'

system. Prior notice will be given pursuant to Section 8.7(c) of

the General Terms and Conditions. In the event that Equitrans

notifies the Customer of an interruption in service under this Rate

Schedule, the Customer must cease deliveries to or receipts from

Equitrans, in whole or in part, as directed by Equitrans.


2.6 The capability to maintain gas in storage under this Rate

Schedule is similarly subject to interruption, and Equitrans

may require a Customer to withdraw all or part of its gas from

storage within the time period specified by Equitrans which

period shall be no less than three (3) days. Equitrans will

notify the Customer of the need to remove its gas from storage

and will specify the quantity to be withdrawn and the deadline

for withdrawal. For each day Equitrans is unable to schedule

the withdrawal of Customer's gas, the period specified for

withdrawal shall be extended by a corresponding number of days.

During the period specified by Equitrans for withdrawal,

Customer may negotiate a sale in place of its gas in storage to

another Customer with storage capacity available under one of

Equitrans' Storage Rate Schedules, and may transfer the

capacity to a Firm Storage Rate Schedule and Service Agreement

which the Customer holds provided that storage capacity is

available under the other Rate Schedule and Service Agreement.

If Customer's gas is not removed, transferred, or sold in place

by the end of the period designated by Equitrans, any remaining

gas balance at the end of said period shall be forfeited to

Equitrans free and clear of any liens or claims.
