In addition to the charges pursuant to Subsection 5.2 of this Rate Schedule,

Company shall charge Shipper an amount to reimburse Shipper 100 percent for any

filing or similar fees, which have not been previously paid by Shipper, which

Company incurs in establishing or rendering service. Company shall not use the

amounts so collected (both costs and revenues) in establishing its general system



5.4 Overrun Charge


If Shipper should on any Gas Day take, under this Rate Schedule, a quantity of gas

more than the effective quantity applicable to such Shipper established in an

Operational Flow Order pursuant to Section 8 of the General Terms and Conditions,

then such excess quantity shall constitute an unauthorized overrun quantity.


Shipper shall pay Company an unauthorized overrun charge equal to fifteen dollars

($15.00) for each Dth of excess deliveries to Shipper. The payment of the overrun

charge is in addition to any other remedies Company may have against Shipper for

Shipper's unauthorized overrun.


If Shipper, upon receiving the advanced approval by Company, should on any Gas Day

transport under this Rate Schedule a quantity of natural gas in excess of

Shipper's TQ under Shipper's Firm Transportation Agreement, then such excess

quantity shall constitute authorized overrun quantities.


Shipper shall nominate authorized overrun quantities through Company's system.

Authorized overrun quantities shall be requested on a separate transaction.



Shipper shall pay Company a rate equal to the volumetric derivative of the maximum

transportation charge applicable to the service under its Firm Transportation

Agreement pursuant to this Rate Schedule designed on a 100 percent load factor

basis multiplied by the amount of the authorized overrun quantity, unless the

parties mutually agree otherwise.


5.5 Negotiated Rates


Notwithstanding any provision of Company's effective FERC Gas Tariff to the

contrary, Company and Shipper may mutually agree in writing to a Negotiated Rate

with respect to rates, rate components, charges, or credits that are otherwise

prescribed, required, established or imposed by this Rate Schedule or by any other

applicable provision of Company's effective FERC Gas Tariff. The Negotiated Rate

may be less than, equal to or greater than the Maximum Rate; shall not be less

than the Minimum Rate; may be based on a rate design other than straight fixed

variable; and may include a minimum quantity. The Maximum Rate shall be available

to any Shipper that does not choose a Negotiated Rate. Nothing in the provisions

governing Negotiated Rate Agreements shall authorize Company or Shipper to violate

FERC's policy with respect to negotiation of terms and conditions of service.


Such Negotiated Rate shall be set forth on an Exhibit of the executed Firm

Transportation Agreement and on the Statement of Negotiated Rates in Company's

FERC Gas Tariff.
