6. RATES AND CHARGES (Continued)


6.1 Applicable Rates (Continued)


The monthly charges for PAL services shall be the product of the quantities of gas

in Buyer's PAL account for each separate transaction and the maximum or mutually

6.2 Incidental Charges


In addition to the rates and charges pursuant to Subsection 6.1 of this Rate

Schedule, Company shall charge Buyer an amount to reimburse Company 100 percent

for any filing or similar fees, which have not been previously paid by Buyer,

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.


6.3 Negotiated Rates


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

contrary, Company and Buyer 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 Buyer that does not choose a Negotiated Rate. Nothing in the provisions

governing Negotiated Rate Agreements shall authorize Company or Buyer 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 PAL

Agreement and on the Negotiated Rates sheet of the Tariff.


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 Buyer'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
