Shipper's ability to utilize primary and alternate flexible receipt

Separately stated GS-T Market Area and GS-T Field Area rates, as shown on

Sheet No. 53 of this Tariff, shall apply in accordance with the GS-T

Shipper's agreement(s) described in 1 above.


In addition, the GS-T Shipper shall pay the daily delivery variance charge,

overrun charges, out-of-balance charges, penalties, surcharges, and any other

applicable charges as set forth in this Tariff.





GS-T Agreements entered into with GS customers shall retain any unilateral

rollover right (grandfathered rollover right) contained therein or contained in

a GS customer's existing TF agreements. However, should a Shipper request a

rollover of an agreement which contains grandfathered rollover rights for less

than the term of the original GS-T agreement, or a rollover at less than

maximum rates, then the MDQ shall be subject to the Right of First Refusal

process described in Section 52 of The GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS of this

Tariff. If a Shipper under an agreement containing a grandfathered rollover

right requests a rollover of less than the MDQ, then only that portion of the

agreement for which a rollover was requested will remain subject to the

grandfathered rollover right. The remaining quantity shall be subject to the

Right of First Refusal process.
