Original Sheet No. 532 Original Sheet No. 532 : Effective








For the services provided or contracted for hereunder, Shipper

agrees to pay Panhandle the then-effective, applicable rates and

charges under Panhandle's Rate Schedule SCT filed with the

Commission, as such rates and charges and Rate Schedule SCT may

hereafter be modified, supplemented, superseded, or replaced

generally or as to the service hereunder. Panhandle reserves the

right from time to time to unilaterally file and to make effective

any such changes in the terms or rate levels under Rate Schedule SCT

and the applicability thereof, the General Terms and Conditions or

any other provisions of Panhandle's Tariff, subject to the applicable

provisions of the Natural Gas Act and the Commission's Regulations



From time to time Panhandle and Shipper may agree in writing,

on a level of discount of the otherwise applicable rates and charges

hereunder, pursuant to the effective applicable provisions of Rate

Schedule SCT and subject to the Regulations and Orders of the

Commission. For example, Panhandle and Shipper may agree that a

specified discounted rate shall apply: (a) only to certain

Quantities under this Agreement; (b) only if specified Quantity

levels are actually achieved or only with respect to Quantities below

a specified level; (c) only during specified time periods; (d) only

to specified Points of Receipt, Points of Delivery, mainline

segments, transportation paths or defined geographical areas; (e)

only to production reserves committed by the Shipper; (f) in a

specified relationship to the Quantities actually transported (i.e.,

that the rates shall be adjusted in a specified relationship to

Quantities actually transported); or (g) based on published index

prices for specific receipt or delivery points or other agreed upon

pricing reference points for price determination (Such discounted

rate may be based on the published index price point differential or

arrived at by formula. Any service agreement containing an index

based discount will identify what rate component is discounted.);

provided, however, that any such discounted rate set forth above

shall be between the Maximum Rate and Minimum Rate applicable to the

service provided under this Agreement. In addition, the discount

agreement may include a provision that if one rate component which

was at or below the applicable Maximum Rate at the time the discount

agreement was executed subsequently exceeds the applicable Maximum

Rate due to a change in Panhandle's Maximum Rates so that such rate

component must be adjusted downward to equal the new applicable

Maximum Rate, then other rate components may be adjusted upward to

achieve the agreed overall rate, so long as none of the resulting

rate components exceed the Maximum Rate applicable to that rate

component. Such changes to rate components shall be applied

prospectively, commencing with the date a Commission order accepts

revised tariff sheets. However, nothing contained herein shall be

construed to alter a refund obligation under applicable law for any

period during which rates which had been charged under a discount

agreement exceeded rates which ultimately are found to be just and

reasonable. Any discount(s) shall be effective only on a prospective

basis and as specified in the written agreement between Panhandle and
