Firm Transportation Service



3.5 In addition to the applicable charge pursuant to Section 3.1 of this Rate

Schedule, Shipper shall pay Transporter the Annual Charge Adjustment (ACA)

identified in Sheet 5 for each Dekatherm transported and for any and all filing

fees incurred as a result of Shipper's request for service under this Rate

Schedule, to the extent such fees are imposed upon Transporter by the Federal

Energy Regulatory Commission or any successor governmental authority having

jurisdiction, and to the extent related exclusively to the services provided

hereunder. Shipper shall pay Transporter for such fees at such time as a

Shipper returns to Transporter an executed service agreement, at Transporter's

designated office or depository.


3.6 Shipper shall reimburse Transporter for the costs of any facilities

installed by Transporter with Shipper's consent which are necessary to receive,

measure, transport or deliver gas to or for the account of Shipper. Such

facilities installed hereunder will not result in the pass-through of costs

absent a Section 4 filing.


3.7 Transporter declared an open season, beginning September 4, 1990, and ending

September 18, 1990, for both the initial allocation of capacity on

Transporter's system and the negotiation of reservation charges. The open

season did not result in any firm service subscriptions.


In the event that shippers inquire about the availability of firm service,

Transporter will evaluate then existing operating conditions to determine the

amount of additional firm service that can be reliably performed. To ensure

that all shippers have an opportunity to compete for any additional firm

capacity that can be made available, Transporter will post a notice on its

website advising existing and prospective shippers of firm capacity that will

be made available. This capacity will be awarded to shippers who submit

completed service requests in accordance with Article 7 of Rate Schedule FT on

a first-come, first-service basis, among the shippers who are willing to pay

maximum rates. It is Transporter's policy that firm service will only be

offered and performed to shippers willing to pay the maximum rate.
