Firm Transportation Service






4.3 Seller's ability to receive gas under this Rate Schedule at specific point(s) of

receipt is subject to the operating limitations of Seller and the upstream party at

such point(s) and to the availability of capacity after performance by Seller of any

existing certificated firm service arrangements under other Rate Schedules between

Seller and third parties at such point(s) of receipt. If an allocation of capacity at

a point of receipt is required by Seller, Seller shall prorate quantities scheduled at

that point among all Buyers under this Rate Schedule requesting service on that day

based upon the relative priority of scheduled quantities at the specific point(s) of

receipt on Seller's pipeline system. Quantities nominated from secondary receipt

points provided in Section 2.8 of this Rate Schedule, shall be interrupted first under

this Rate Schedule, and shall be reduced prorata based upon the requested quantities.

All other quantities scheduled hereunder will be reduced based upon relative TCQ

quantities on that segment of Seller's pipeline system.




4.5 Each executed Service Agreement shall specify Buyer's traditional FT delivery

point(s). In addition, all delivery point(s) upstream of such traditional FT delivery

point(s) ("non-traditional delivery points") located within Buyer's TCQ entitlements,

as specified in Sections 7.2 and 7.3 below, shall be made available to Buyer by Seller

posting such delivery points on 1Line. Buyer's ability to nominate transportation

service to such upstream non-traditional delivery point(s) will be subject to: (a)

operating and tariff limitations at such point(s); (b) confirmation and acceptance by

the party responsible for operation of the upstream delivery point; and further, may

be subordinate to any firm services scheduled to such point(s) which are traditional

FT, FTN or FT-G delivery points of another firm Buyer.


Additionally, a Buyer under this Rate Schedule may nominate quantities of gas for

transportation to secondary delivery points pursuant to Section 2.8 of this Rate



4.6 Transportation service under this Rate Schedule, from the receipt point(s) and to the

delivery point(s) specified in this Section 4 shall be subject to any applicable

tariff limitations and contract capacity entitlements. The sum of Buyer's deliveries

through a given segment of Seller's pipeline shall be limited to Buyer's TCQ quantity

as specified in the executed Service Agreement for such segment of capacity.


4.7 Buyers under this Rate Schedule shall schedule transportation service to valid

delivery points from valid receipt points without restriction to the direction of

flow, provided however, the sum of the volumes scheduled on any day (upstream and/or

downstream) through a given segment of Seller's pipeline shall not exceed Buyer's TCQ

quantity as specified in the executed Service Agreement for such segment of capacity.

Subject to the foregoing sentence and to other provisions of this Rate Schedule,

Buyer, and any and all Replacement Shippers that derive a firm capacity entitlement

from Buyer, may schedule on any day forwardhaul transportation up to Buyer's TCQ

quantity and backhaul transportation up to Buyer's TCQ quantity, within or outside

Buyer's firm contract path (as defined by those receipt and delivery points

specifically identified in Buyer's FT Service Agreement), for delivery at the same

valid delivery point at the same time. Further, Reverse Path transportation, as

defined in Section 2.9(b), is subject to the operating conditions of Seller's pipeline

and will not be made available to Buyer if Seller, in Seller's sole discretion,

determines that such transportation is operationally infeasible.


4.8 For capacity release transactions, receipt and delivery points will be established by

the terms of the capacity release agreement. The rights of the Replacement Shipper at

any particular point shall be those rights of the Releasing Shipper.
