Firm Shippers (original capacity holders) under GTN's firm transportation

rate schedules of Third Revised Volume No. 1-A who hold capacity for

terms greater than or equal to one year at the maximum authorized

reservation charge or rate shall have the right of first refusal at the

expiration of their service agreements, subject to the procedures

outlined below. The right of first refusal does not apply to interim

service agreements for capacity that has been reserved for a future

expansion project as set forth in Section 32 of these Transportation

General Terms and Conditions, or capacity that has been sold on a pre-

arranged basis pursuant to Section 18.1(b) of these Transportation

General Terms and Conditions.


Original capacity holders must notify GTN one year prior to the primary

expiration date of their service agreements whether they elect to

terminate or not to terminate the service agreements. However, in the

event that an expansion project is proposed that would utilize capacity

on Transporter's existing facilities, the sizing of which project could

be affected by Shipper's plans regarding the continuation of service,

Transporter will have the right to notify Shipper that Shipper's election

to terminate or not to terminate must be provided up to, but no more

than, thirty six (36) months prior to termination of Shipper's service

regarding its election to terminate or not to terminate its service

agreement, GTN will post a notice on its Internet website that the

original capacity holder's service agreement will expire and whether the

original capacity holder has either elected or not elected to terminate

pursuant to this paragraph.


33.1 In the event original capacity holder elects termination, original

capacity holder shall no longer hold a right of first refusal and

GTN shall subject the capacity to a bidding process. GTN will
