reservation charge simultaneously billed to the Replacement Shipper, minus all

applicable fees described in Section 11.15 of the General Terms and

reservation rate and maximum usage rate for service under this Rate Schedule

FT and to charge a lower rate for some or all of the services performed under

this Rate Schedule; provided, however, that in no event shall rates charged

under this Rate Schedule be less than the minimum reservation rate and minimum

usage rate for firm service. Transporter shall not be obligated to offer

service at discount rates, however, discounted rates will not be made on an

unduly discriminatory basis and will be made available to all similarly

situated customers.

service at specific receipt and delivery points may request that such

discounted rate apply to alternate points if Shipper chooses to release

capacity or use flexible receipt and delivery point rights. There shall be a

rebuttable presumption that Shipper will retain its discounted rate when

utilizing such points if Transporter currently grants discounts to another

Shipper receiving transportation service utilizing such points. However,

Transporter can rebut this presumption by demonstrating that Shipper is not

similarly situated to the Shipper receiving the discount at those points. If

the discount is retained, Shipper shall pay the higher of its contractual

discounted rate or the highest discounted rate being applicable to those



On any business day, the request to transfer the discount must be

submitted at least two hours prior to the nomination that would use the

discount at alternate points. Transporter shall respond to the request within

two hours of receipt; however, any request received after 4:00 p.m. Central

Clock Time on any Business Day shall be responded to by 9:00 a.m. Central

Clock time on the following business day.
