receive any portion of its service on a pro-rated basis, and

elects not to accept the pro-rated capacity, it must notify

Equitrans of its election within one hour after receiving notification

of proration of capacity. Equitrans will then offer the relinquished

service was pro-rated.

a. Once all or a portion of the nomination of a Customer who is

paying the maximum rate is accepted and scheduled pursuant to

Sections 8.1(b), 8.2 and 8.5 during any Nomination Period, said

scheduled service shall not be interrupted or curtailed at any

point on Equitrans' system unless: (1) interruption or

curtailment is necessary for reasons of force majeure pursuant

to Section 10 of these General Terms and Conditions; or(2)

such capacity is required to provide a higher priority service

as a result of a nomination received during the timely

nomination cycle, evening nomination cycle or intra-day

nomination 1 cycle. Bumping is not allowed during the intra-

day nomination 2 cycle. In determining priority of service,

firm transportation at a primary or secondary point shall have

higher priority than interruptible transportation at the same

point, and firm transportation at a primary point shall have

higher priority than firm transportation at a secondary point.


b. Interruptible transportation gas which is nominated for any

Nomination Period at a discounted rate can be interrupted at

any time during the Nomination Period prior to the day on

which the gas will actually flow by other interruptible

transportation gas which is nominated at a higher rate.

However, any interruptible transportation which is scheduled

by Equitrans and is flowing on a given day is not subject to

interruption for the purpose of flowing interruptible

transportation nominated at a higher rate.
