information: quantity, flow period, upstream

transportation contract number(s), downstream transportation contract

number(s), Shipper name and Service Agreement number, and the Shipper's

authorized employee name and telephone number. All nominations shall be

based on a daily quantity.

All nominations shall include Shipper-defined begin dates and end dates. All

nominations, excluding Intraday nominations, have rollover options.

Specifically, Shippers have the ability to nominate for several Days, Months,

or years, provided the nomination begin and end dates are within the term of

Shipper's Service Agreement.


Overrun Quantities should be requested by separate nomination.

8.2 Freebird will accept nominations for service as follows:

(a) The Timely Nomination Cycle: 11:30 a.m. for nominations leaving control

of the nominating party; 11:45 a.m. for receipt of nominations by Freebird

(including from Title Transfer Tracking Service Providers (TTTSPs)); noon to

send Quick Response; 3:30 p.m. for receipt of completed confirmations by

Freebird from upstream and downstream connected parties; 4:30 p.m. for receipt

of scheduled quantities by Shipper and point operator (all times Central Clock

Time on the Day prior to flow).


The sending party shall adhere to nomination, confirmation, and scheduling

deadlines. It is the party receiving the request who has the right to waive

the deadline.


(b) Intraday Nominations. Any nomination received during a Gas Day for the

same Day of Gas flow, or any nomination received after the nominations

deadline set forth in Section 8.2(a) above for the following Day flow shall be

an Intraday nomination. Intraday nominations can be used to request increases

or decreases in total flow. Intraday nominations do not roll over (i.e.,

Intraday nominations span one Day only). Intraday nominations do not replace

the remainder of a standing nomination. There is no need to re-nominate if an

Intraday nomination modifies an existing nomination. Intraday nominations may

be used to nominate new injections or withdrawals. All nominations, including

Intraday nominations, should be based on a Daily quantity; thus, an intraday

nominator need not submit an hourly nomination. Intraday nominations should

include an effective date and time. The affected parties should agree on the

hourly flows of the Intraday nomination, if not otherwise addressed in

Freebird's contract or tariff. Freebird reserves the right to pro-rate

a Shipper's MDIQ or MDWQ for a nomination that takes effect after the

beginning of the Gas Day (9:00 a.m. Central Time). Freebird will

exercise this right in a non-discriminatory manner consistent with the

NAESB standards.


In the event Shipper does not submit a timely nomination or desires to alter

an existing nomination, Shipper shall have the right to submit an Intraday

nomination to revise Shipper's scheduled quantities on a prospective basis

prior to the end of the Gas Day; provided, however, that such Intraday

nomination will be processed after all timely nominations have been scheduled.

Such Intraday nomination shall be implemented by Freebird to the extent and

only to the extent that Freebird is able to confirm the receipt and delivery

of such Gas at the Point of Injection/Withdrawal.


Shipper shall have the right to negotiate a lower market rate for any service

in which such Shipper agrees to forego its right to evening or Intraday

nomination services.


Freebird shall process Intraday nominations in accordance with the following

standard nomination cycles:
