3.1 A request for service under this Rate Schedule FFTS shall

be valid as of the date received if it complies with this Section and

contains adequate information on all of the items specified in

Section 3.2, subject to any necessary verification of such

information and to the following:


(a) A request shall not be valid and Natural shall not

be required to grant any such request: (i) as to which Natural does

not have the firm capacity and operational capability to effect

receipt, transportation and/or delivery on a firm basis consistent

with the terms and conditions of this Rate Schedule FFTS and the

request for service hereunder, including the minimum number of

Available Days and the associated defined time period(s) and any

other requested parameters as to Available Days requested by Shipper;

(ii) which, except as provided for in Section 3.1(b) hereof, would

require the construction, modification, expansion, or acquisition of

any facilities; provided, however, that Natural may agree in its

reasonable discretion to construct, modify, expand, or acquire

facilities to enable it to perform such services; (iii) unless and

until Shipper has provided Natural with the information required in

Section 3.2 hereof; (iv) if Natural determines, based on the credit

analysis referenced in Section 3.2(h), that Shipper does not possess

sufficient financial stability to make it reasonably likely the

service provided hereunder will be paid for on a timely basis; (v) if

the service requested would not comply with this Rate Schedule FFTS;

or (vi) if the service requested is at less than the applicable

maximum rate; provided, however, that Natural may agree to provide

service hereunder at a discount consistent with this Rate Schedule

FFTS. Nothing herein is intended to govern the scheduling and

curtailment of service once a request for service has been granted

pursuant to this Section and while an FFTS Agreement is in effect.

Such matters are governed by the General Terms and Conditions of this

facilities to effectuate service requested under this Rate Schedule

FFTS provided that: (i) the cost of such facilities does not exceed

$100,000; (ii) Natural shall be reimbursed prior to commencing

construction; and (iii) the facilities will not adversely affect

Natural's operations.
