3.1 The IS rate schedule applies to all interruptible storage service rendered

pursuant to an executed Service Agreement providing for a Maximum Storage

Quantity (MSQ). IS service will only be available to the extent that

injection, storage, and withdrawal capacity is not required to satisfy

Transporter's firm obligations under its firm rate schedules or to otherwise

ensure efficient and effective operations.


3.2 IS service may be interrupted whenever necessary for Transporter to serve a

higher priority customer, to maintain service quality, or to maintain

efficiency, flexibility, and integrity of its system. Transporter, in its

reasonable discretion, may interrupt service if it deems such interruption

necessary due to operating conditions and system requirements or to ensure

that Transporter can render services to its other customers in accordance

with priorities set out in section 7 below.


3.3 Transporter may at any time notify Shipper of an interruption pursuant to

sections 3.1 and 3.2 above, in which event Shipper must immediately cease

deliveries to or receipts of IS gas from Transporter, in whole or in part,

as directed by Transporter. Additionally, Transporter may require Shipper

to withdraw all, or any portion, of its Storage Inventory. If Shipper is

required by Transporter to withdraw IS gas, Shipper, within 24 hours of

notice from Transporter, shall withdraw and receive under a transportation

agreement such gas at a minimum daily rate of 11.11 percent of the required

withdrawals unless otherwise agreed to by Transporter. Such withdrawals

shall not be avoided by transferring gas under Section 10, unless such

transfer is to a FS Shipper; provided that the transfer cannot be effected

if it will cause the FS Shipper to exceed the Maximum Storage Quantity under

its FS Service Agreement. To the extent that Transporter is unable to

schedule receipt of the IS withdrawal gas from Shipper's IS service point

within the ten day period allotted for such withdrawal, the period will be

extended accordingly.
