rate and description of any firm capacity awarded pursuant to any of

the procedures in this Section 5.1(c). This posting shall be made no

later than ten (10) days after firm capacity is awarded. This posting

and Conditions. Instead, the procedures in said Section 22 will govern

the award of capacity. With respect to contractual rollover rights

permitted under said Section 22, such rollover rights in contracts

executed prior to January 1, 1999, shall be honored without regard to

the procedures in this Section 5.1(c), but requests for firm capacity

pursuant to contractual rollover provisions agreed upon in contracts

executed after January 1, 1999, shall be considered on the same basis

as any other request.



Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 5, Natural reserves

the right, but shall not be obligated, to reserve for expansion

projects capacity which is or will become available. Expansion

projects can encompass capacity on Natural's existing system which will

or may be needed by a Shipper in conjunction with capacity which may be

acquired by that Shipper in a future extension project. For purposes

of this Section 5.1(c)(11), there are four types of capacity that

Natural may reserve subject to the conditions detailed below. The four

types of capacity are:


(i) Capacity currently posted on the

Informational Postings portion of Natural's Interactive Website which

(ii) Capacity which had previously been

posted for bidding pursuant to the Right of First Refusal (Section

22.3) provisions of these General Terms and Conditions and for which no
