A Shipper receiving service under Rate Schedules IT, AOT or FT-A shall not lose its

priority for purposes of this Section 4 by the renewal or extension of the term of that

service; provided, however, any renewal or extension must be pursuant to a rollover or

evergreen provision of the Transportation Agreement.


5. Allocation of Limited Capacity: If, on any day, Transporter determines that the

capacity of its system, or any portion thereof including the point(s) at which gas is

tendered for transportation is insufficient to serve all transportation requirements

which are otherwise scheduled to receive service on such day, then Transporter shall

first curtail interruptible services, and thereafter shall curtail firm services. For

purposes of curtailing interruptible services, Transporter shall first interrupt those

Shippers paying the lowest transportation rate, and then those paying the next lowest

rate, and so on until the necessary level of interruption is achieved. Curtailment of

interruptible services paying the same transportation rate shall be in accordance with

the priority established in Section 4(d), (e) and (f) above. If it is necessary to

curtail firm services, Transporter shall interrupt firm transportation services pro rata

based on the maximum daily quantity of the affected Shippers; provided however, that

services utilizing a Secondary Receipt Point or a Secondary Delivery Point shall be

curtailed prior to services utilizing a Primary Receipt Point and a Primary Delivery

Point. If Transporter determines at any time that the capacity of its system or any

portion thereof, including the point(s) at which gas is tendered for transportation, is

sufficient to serve transportation requirements for which nominations have been received

in accordance with Section 3 but which have not been scheduled to receive service on

that day, Transporter may notify affected Shippers and may allocate available capacity

to such requirements in accordance with Section 4 on the basis of requested nominations

which are confirmed by such Shippers by telephone or by other means of communication

within one hour of the time that such notice is provided; provided, however, that

capacity shall be allocated solely on the basis of nominations for the month in which

such capacity becomes available and not on the basis of nominations for prior months.


No Shipper receiving interruptible transportation service may be curtailed during a

month due to a capacity limitation which is the result of a change in interruptible

transportation service for other interruptible transportation Shippers; provided,

however, that interruptible transportation service may be curtailed due to a change in

interruptible service for other Shippers where the change is due to (i) the correction

of a previously existing condition of the nature set forth in Article X of these General

Terms and Conditions, (ii) the correction of a previous scheduling error by Transporter

or (iii) a request for service by a Shipper receiving service under Rate Schedule AOT.
