Section 12.4(c) (continued)


(c) Receipt Point Nominations Affected by Force Majeure Events:

Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, if a SHIPPER'S gas supplies

at a Receipt Point cannot be confirmed, solely as a result of an event of

force majeure affecting such supply, COMPANY shall not interrupt SHIPPER'S

transportation service affected by the force majeure event until the

next day for which service can be nominated hereunder, i.e. it will

provide emergency balancing, provided that the following two conditions

are met. First, the anticipated system mean temperature for the day of

transportation for which SHIPPER requests emergency balancing must be

40 degrees Fahrenheit or less. Second, COMPANY must determine, in its

reasonable judgment, that its retained storage inventory and retained

storage withdrawal capacity available for such day are sufficient, in light

of all other operating conditions, to allow such transportation service

to continue until the next day for which service can be nominated

hereunder. SHIPPER must comply with the force majeure notice requirements

set forth in Section 8.3 hereof and request COMPANY to provide

emergency balancing under this provision. If COMPANY cannot provide

emergency balancing to all SHIPPERS who request that it begin within a

similar time period, then COMPANY shall provide the level of emergency

balancing that it determines is available to firm SHIPPERS first, on a pro

rata basis, and then to all other services pursuant to the provisions of

Section 16.2(d).
