(d) A separate nomination shall be submitted to MRT for each

Delivery Location and Service Agreement. Once a nomination, excluding

intraday nominations, has been submitted by a Customer or a Pool

Operator and accepted and confirmed by MRT, such nomination shall remain

in effect until the end date set forth in the nomination unless changed

pursuant to the provisions of this Section 8. If an end date is not

provided, the nomination end date, except for intraday nominations, will

default to the last day of the month in which the nomination begin date



(e) Transfer Nominations. MRT accommodates TTT on its system

via the procedures specified in this Section 8.1(e). Other than

processing valid nominations to reflect the in-place transfer of gas,

MRT shall be required to provide no accounting services relating to TTT.


(i) Whenever gas is purchased or sold at a receipt point

on MRT's system, including storage withdrawals and pooling

point(s), by an entity that is not nominating the gas for receipt

by MRT under a Service Agreement, that entity must submit a

transfer nomination to MRT, which identifies the Dth quantities,

the entities from whom the gas is being bought, and the entities

to whom the gas is being sold. Transfer nominations must be

received by MRT on or before the applicable deadlines for Customer

and Pool Operator nominations. If there is more than one entity

which is receiving gas from a transfer nomination, the

predetermined allocation methodology to be utilized for those gas

deliveries will be pro rata based upon quantities specified in the

transfer nomination, unless another methodology has been agreed

upon. MRT shall have the right to require entities submitting

transfer nominations to MRT to enter into an agreement outlining

such entities' responsibilities.

(ii) A party desiring to provide TTT services which arise

from or terminate with activity on MRT's system shall do so as

authorized agent for the entities transferring title. If any of

such entities are Customers or Pool Operators, such 3PAD shall be

required to enter into an agency agreement in MRT's then current

form, among the Customer or Pool Operator, MRT and the 3PAD.

Customers utilizing TTT services provided by 3PADs shall nominate

(or otherwise communicate in a mutually agreeable manner) the

identity of their transaction counterparty along with the

applicable, associated nominations-related information to the

3PAD. Failure to do so can result in the failure of the subject

transaction to be communicated to and scheduled by MRT.


(f) Nomination Deadlines.
