5.1 Applicable Rates and Charges


The rates for service under this Rate Schedule are listed on the Statement of

Rates of Company's FERC Gas Tariff; provided, however, that Company has the right

at any time and from time to time to adjust the rates applicable to service under

this Rate Schedule, including the component for fuel and losses, upon agreement

with Shipper to any level not less than the Minimum or more than the Maximum

Rates. In the event that Company makes such an adjustment, such adjusted rate

shall apply solely to service at the receipt and/or delivery points agreed upon by

Shipper and Company and shall be applicable solely for the period agreed upon by

Shipper and Company.


In the event Company and Shipper agree to establish a rate which is not subject to

change and which is to be charged for the duration of the transportation service,

such rate will be set forth in the applicable Transportation Agreement.


5.2 Incidental Charges


In addition to the rates and charges pursuant to Subsection 5.1 of this Rate

Schedule, Company shall charge Shipper an amount to reimburse Company 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 rates.


5.3 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.


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

take under this Rate Schedule a quantity of natural gas in excess of Shipper's TQ

under Shipper's IT 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 IT 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.
