A Shipper receiving service under Rate Schedules IT-2, FT-2, or the rate schedules contained

in Volume 2 of the Viking tariff shall not lose its priority for purposes of this Section 5 by

the renewal or extension of term of that service (or, in the case of a Volume II rate

schedule, the replacement of the service with an equivalent service under Rate Schedule IT-2

or FT-2); provided, however, any renewal or extension must be pursuant to a rollover or

evergreen provision of the Transportation Contract; provided further, however, nothing herein

contained in this Section 5 shall diminish the priority of service under Rate Schedules T-2,

T-9 or T-11.


6. Allocation of Limited Capacity: If, on any day, Seller 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 sales and transportation requirements which

are otherwise scheduled to receive service on such day, then Seller shall first curtail

interruptible services, and thereafter shall curtail firm services. For purposes of

curtailing interruptible services (Rate Schedules AO, I-2, IT-2 and T-9 authorized

overrun), Seller shall first interrupt those Buyers 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 among interruptible services paying the same

transportation rate (or transportation component of the sales rate) shall be in

accordance with the priority established in Section 5(b), (c) and (d) above. If it is

necessary to curtail firm services, Seller shall interrupt firm sales and transportation

services pro rata in accordance with Section 5(a). If Seller 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 sales and/or transportation

requirements for which nominations have been received in accordance with Section 4 but

which have not been scheduled to receive service on that day, Seller may notify affected

Buyers and may allocate available capacity to such requirements in accordance with

Section 5 on the basis of requested nominations which are confirmed by such Buyers 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 Buyer 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 Buyers; provided, however,

that interruptible transportation service may be curtailed due to an event of force

majeure which prevents the customer from tendering gas.
