provided under this Rate Schedule FTS is implemented pursuant

to Transporter's blanket certificate issued pursuant to

Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act.




Either Transporter, Shipper or both may assign or pledge the

executed FTS Agreement under the provisions of any mortgage,

deed of trust, indenture, or similar instrument which it has

executed or may execute covering substantially all of its

properties; otherwise neither party may assign the executed

FTS Agreement, in whole or in part, or any of its rights

hereunder, unless it first shall have obtained the written

consent of the other party.




The total quantity of Natural Gas needed by Transporter for

the purging, pressuring and maintaining pressure on

Transporter's system, testing of Transporter's facilities, and

for major expansions or line additions ("Line Pack") shall be

purchased by Transporter pro rata from all firm Shippers,

unless Transporter can purchase Line Pack directly from a

third party at less cost. When Line Pack is needed, Shipper's

portion of Line Pack shall be based pro rata on Shipper's MDQ

and Transporter's total firm MDQs. The price per MMBtu to be

paid Shipper for Line Pack Gas sold to Transporter shall be

Shipper's average cost per MMBtu for all gas delivered by

Shipper to Transporter during the Month in which Transporter

purchases such Natural Gas from Shipper.


Transporter and Shipper recognize that not all firm Shippers

may have Natural Gas available for Line Pack as of the date

when such volumes are required by Transporter. Transporter

and Shipper agree that those having Natural Gas available when

such volumes are required by Transporter for Line Pack shall

furnish the necessary quantity of Natural Gas for Line Pack

and any excess Natural Gas so furnished shall be reimbursed in

Natural Gas on a thermal equivalent basis by Transporter from

Natural Gas delivered by such other firm Shippers not having

Natural Gas available on the date when such volumes are

required by Transporter as Natural Gas is received by

Transporter from such other firm Shippers for transportation.

If the quantity of Natural Gas sold to Transporter by Shipper

for Line Pack is determined to exceed at any time Shipper's

portion of the total Line Pack required by Transporter, then

such excess shall not be reimbursed but shall be applied to

any future Line Pack increase required by Transporter from

Shipper until such excess is eliminated.
