under Original Volume No. 2 of Transporter's Tariff.


9.1 Firm Services Priority of Requests. If there is insufficient firm

capacity available to accept all new requests for service, after

providing for Agreements for firm Transportation Service, the priority

of requests for firm Transportation Service received by Transporter

subsequent to October 9, 1985 shall be pursuant to the greatest NPV,

provided, however, that Transporter shall not be obligated to provide

service below the maximum applicable rate(s). Usage components will be

considered in deriving the NPV for any offer involving a Negotiated Rate

transaction that includes a minimum volume commitment. In such

instance, usage rate components, to the extent of any minimum volume

commitment, will be evaluated using the same criteria applied to the

reservation rate components: the sum of the resulting reservation and

minimum usage revenues will be used to determine the greatest NPV.

Shippers offering to pay a Negotiated Rate which exceeds the applicable

maximum tariff rates, including surcharges, shall be considered to be

paying such applicable maximum tariff rates in determining the NPV for

such Agreement. If more than one such request for firm Transportation

Service has the same NPV, then the order of priority as among such

requests shall be determined by the order in which the requests are

received by Transporter. Requests received by mail will be deemed

received at 5:00 p.m. on the date of postmark. Requests received by

facsimile or electronic mail will be deemed received at the time noted

on the Transporter's facsimile transmission sheet or the electronic



Acceptance of new requests for service under Rate Schedule FTS-4L

shall be conditioned on the availability of capacity resulting from

FTS-4 Agreements. If a Shipper has executed an Agreement with

Transporter under Rate Schedule FTS-4, such Shipper shall be given

priority over other Shippers requesting service under Rate Schedule

FTS-4L, provided (i) Shipper's request for service is for the same

Primary Route MDQ as that in the executed FTS-4 Agreement and the

Primary Receipt and Delivery Points are within the Primary Route of

the executed FTS-4 Agreement and (ii) Shipper has agreed to pay the

highest applicable tariff rates offered for the FTS-4L service.


9.2 Interruptible Services. Agreements relating to interruptible

transportation service obligations, and extensions thereof, shall

following principles.


(a) Agreements for interruptible Transportation Service which were

under this paragraph (a) shall be by the date of the Agreement.

to applications filed on or after October 9, 1985; and

Agreements relating to interruptible Transportation Service
