(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Sections 8.2 (a) and 8.2 (b)

hereof, an OFO shall not be issued (and backhaul nominations will not be

confirmed), to maintain firm deliveries under a backhaul service agreement

entered into, and approved by FERC, pursuant to Section 2.3 of Rate Schedule

FT-A, when sufficient displacement quantities are not available.


(d) Upon the issuance of an OFO by Company, it shall be incumbent upon each

Balancing Party to adjust gas supplies as directed. Such response shall

be required within the time frame specified in the OFO. Failure to comply

in a timely fashion with an OFO may result in an immediate interruption of

all or a portion of Balancing Party's service and cause Balancing Party to

incur penalties as provided for in Section 29 of the General Terms and

believes it is necessary to take actions (i.e., buying or selling gas,

etc.) to maintain system integrity or to prevent interrupting service to

another Shipper, Company shall have the right, but not the obligation, to

take such remedial actions as it deems necessary. If Company takes these

actions, it shall be made whole by the non-responding Balancing Party(s)

for all costs that Company incurs.


(f) Company shall not be liable for any costs incurred by any Balancing Party

in complying with an OFO.

interruption in Balancing Party's service that is a result of a Balancing

Party's failure to comply promptly and fully with an OFO and the

non-complying Balancing Party(s) shall indemnify Company against any

claims of responsibility.


(h) Notwithstanding the foregoing, when gas supplies necessary to effectuate

transportation deliveries are not flowing on the system, Company will not

be responsible for backing up such supplies and the associated deliveries

will be subject to interruption.
