Shipper electing the SW option may not segment a capacity release

3.1 A request for service under this Rate Schedule FTS 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) for which adequate

capacity is not available on any portion of Natural's transmission

have the operational capability to effect receipt, transportation

and/or delivery on a firm basis consistent with the terms and

conditions of this Rate Schedule FTS; (iii) 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; (iv) unless and

until Shipper has provided Natural with the information required in

Section 3.2 hereof; (v) 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; (vi)

if the service requested would not comply with this Rate Schedule

FTS; or (vii) if the service requested is at less than the

to provide service hereunder at a discount consistent with this Rate

Schedule FTS. Natural may also reject any request, or may limit the

term of the FTS Agreement granted to Shipper, in the event the

service requested would utilize a portion of Natural's system such

that a bottleneck would be created that would likely prevent

Natural from utilizing upstream or downstream portions of its
