Shipper's FDD Service Agreement shall maintain an inactive status during the time

period each Shipper is a party to a Consolidation Agreement. A Shipper initiating

participation in an FDD Consolidation Agreement must provide written notice to

Northern ten (10) business days prior to the beginning of the month the agreement is

proposed to be effective. The agreement becomes valid on the date set forth in the

agreement and upon execution by the parties.


A Shipper terminating participation in an FDD Consolidation Agreement must provide at

least ten (10) days written notice to Northern to withdraw from the agreement

effective at the end of that month. The notice to terminate must represent that

the agent has consented and the distribution of all account balance information for

the Shipper withdrawing from the consolidation agreement, including the volumes, the

storage points associated with the volumes and the transportation used to inject the

volumes into the storage account.


Shipper and agent/operator agree that agent is the sole nominator and sole agent under

Shipper's FDD Service Agreement and the Consolidation Agreement.


By participating in this arrangement, Shipper recognizes that during that

participation it is waiving certain rights it may have pursuant to Northern's Tariff,

including the right to nominate under its individual FDD Service Agreement(s), the

right to be billed individually, the individual right to object to an invoice except

through its agent/operator, and any other rights associated with having the agreements

handled separately.


Nothing herein relieves Shipper of its obligation under the respective FDD Service

Agreements including, but not limited to, balancing and paying invoices as principals

under the FDD Service Agreements. In the event the agent fails to pay the invoice,

the Shipper will be given ten (10) calendar days from the date Northern notifies the

Shipper to pay the invoice, subject to Section 8, Billing and Payment, of the GENERAL

TERMS AND CONDITIONS of this Tariff. Each Shipper's balancing obligations will be

determined on a pro rata basis. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, obligation

for all costs shall be distributed between the Shippers on a pro rata basis based on

the original Firm Storage Quantities (FSQs).
