The Base Gas purchase rights shall apply to Rate Schedule WSS-Open Access Buyers
receiving service from Seller as of November 1, 1998 or to Rate Schedule WSS Buyers
receiving service from Seller as of November 1, 1998 that subsequently convert to
service under this Rate Schedule. If a Buyer under this Rate Schedule exercises its
right to purchase Base Gas as shown above, such right must be exercised upon the
termination of service hereunder; however, with respect to a permanent release under
Section 42.14 of the General Terms and Conditions, Buyer may exercise its right to

such right to a Replacement Shipper.
8.3 Seller's Replenishment of Base Gas
If a Buyer exercises the right to purchase Base Gas pursuant to Section 8.2 of this
Rate Schedule and Seller replenishes all, or any portion, of the Base Gas in order to
support the top gas capacity entitlements of a new Buyer(s) under this rate schedule
that contracts for capacity vacated by the terminating Buyer, then Seller shall have
the right to make a limited Section 4 rate filing to recover from the new Buyer(s)
any increase in the cost of service attributable to Seller's replenishment of Base
Gas to serve the new Buyer(s). Subject to Seller demonstrating that the cost of the
base gas included in the limited Section 4 rate filing is the actual cost incurred by
Seller to replenish the Base Gas, the level of such costs shall not be subject to
challenge. Seller's purchase of additional base gas quantities will be conducted
pursuant to a posting and bidding process consistent with the procedures set forth in
