5. RATES AND CHARGES (Continued)


5.5 Negotiated Rates (Continued)


If Company agrees to such Negotiated Rate(s), then the Negotiated Rate(s) shall be

effective only for the period agreed upon by Company. During such period, the

Negotiated Rate shall govern and apply to the Shipper's services and the otherwise

applicable rate, rate component, charge or credit which the parties have agreed to

replace with the Negotiated Rate, shall not apply to, or be available to, the

Shipper. Only those rates, rate components, charges or credits identified by

Company and Shipper in writing as being superseded by a Negotiated Rate shall be

ineffective during the period that the Negotiated Rate is effective; all other

rates, rate components, charges, or credits prescribed, required, established or

imposed by this Rate Schedule or Company's Tariff shall remain in effect.


At the end of the period during which the Negotiated Rate is in effect, the

otherwise applicable Maximum Rates or charges shall govern the service provided to



Shippers paying a Negotiated Rate which exceeds the Maximum Rate will be

considered to be paying the Maximum Rate for purposes of scheduling, curtailment

and interruption, and calculating the economic value of a request for unsubscribed

firm capacity.


Replacement Shippers may not bid or pay a rate greater than the Maximum Rate and

are not eligible for Negotiated Rates. In the event that capacity subject to a

Negotiated Rate which is based on a rate design other than straight fixed variable

is released, Shipper and Company may agree on billing adjustments to the Releasing

Shipper that may vary from or are in addition to those set forth in Section 21 of

the General Terms and Conditions of Company's effective FERC Gas Tariff in order

to preserve the economic bases of the Negotiated Rate. Such payment obligation

and crediting mechanism for capacity release shall be set forth on an Exhibit of

the executed Firm Transportation Agreement.




Shipper shall furnish the quantity of gas required for fuel and losses associated with

rendering transportation service pursuant to this Rate Schedule in accordance with

Section 26 of the General Terms and Conditions.
