22.4 In order to maintain and expand service and utilization of

Transporter's system, Transporter may negotiate Agreements

with Shippers in connection with which Transporter could

make a contribution in aid of construction (CIAC) to the

Shipper. The Shipper would use such funds to assist in the

development of its natural gas related facilities. For any

newly agreed to CIAC, Transporter will post on 1LineSM for a

period of thirty (30) days (1) the amount of the CIAC, (2)

the name of the Shipper receiving the CIAC, and (3) the

economic feasibility of the CIAC. Such CIACs are includible

in Transporter's jurisdictional rate base and amortizable.

All CIACs entered into pursuant to this provision shall be

subject to review and challenge by the Commission and all

parties in a general rate case requesting inclusion of such





Transporter and Shipper recognize that Transporter will from time

to time experience changes in costs related to providing service

under this Tariff, including, but not limited to, changes in the

cost of labor, benefits, materials and supplies, taxes, required

rate of return, costs associated with the resolution of past

disputes or outstanding uncertainties concerning amounts owed by

Transporter or Shipper or attributable to Transporter or Shipper,

and costs generated by decisions of the Commission, the courts or

by an arbitration panel or other body having jurisdiction over

Transporter. Transporter and Shipper further recognize that it

may be appropriate, equitable and consistent with cost

responsibility to allocate such costs among Shippers based on or

taking into account past period factors, such as contract demand

levels, throughput or other factors related to a prior period of

time. Shipper agrees that Transporter shall have the right from

time to time to make rate change filings which may include such

costs and utilize an allocation methodology based in whole or in

part on factors related to past periods. Shipper shall have the

right to intervene and protest any such filing.
