interruptible Shippers paying the same rate.

existing transportation arrangement (without increasing the maximum daily

quantity to be received at such point of receipt) will not be considered a new

transaction for priority purposes.

Transporter's corporate office during reasonable business hours, sufficient

information to demonstrate the manner in which the monthly set-up and

determinations and allocations of capacity have been made under this Section
