4.1 A request for service under this Rate Schedule PALS

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

Section 4 and contains adequate information on all of the items

specified in Sections 4.2(a) and 4.2(b), 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: (1) which could in

Natural's judgment interfere with efficient operation of its system

or with service to any firm Shipper; (2) which 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; (3) unless and

until Shipper has provided Natural with the information required in

Section 4.2 hereof and the assurances required under Section 1(c)

hereof; (4) if Natural determines, based on the credit analysis

referenced in Section 4.2(d), 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; (5)

if the service requested would not comply with this Rate Schedule

PALS; or (6) 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 PALS. Nothing herein is intended to govern the

scheduling and curtailment of service once a request for service

has been granted pursuant to Section 4 hereof and while Agreements

under this Rate Schedule are in effect. Such matters are governed

by Section 3 of this Rate Schedule and the applicable General Terms

and Conditions of this Tariff.


(b) In the event that Natural agrees to construct,

modify, expand or acquire facilities to perform service under this

Rate Schedule PALS, Natural shall maintain a separate record of the

nature and costs of such facilities.
