will implement restrictions for scheduling purposes only, not for

curtailment, and will attempt to schedule such activity during a period

when it will not result in limitation of firm services, or when such

limitation will be minimized, after consulting with the Shippers which

could be affected. If Natural curtails or limits the scheduling of

firm volumes pursuant to this Section 5.2(a) for reasons not caused by

a Shipper, Natural shall waive applicable tariff restrictions and

requirements as to such Shipper (such as seasonal cycling requirements)

to the extent that such a waiver is operationally feasible, but such a

waiver shall only be granted if and to the extent Shipper could not

reasonably be expected to meet such requirements in light of Natural's

actions hereunder.


(b) For Shippers under all firm services, Natural

shall provide notice of any curtailment or of any scheduling

restriction as far in advance as feasible. Natural shall attempt to

provide at least two (2) Days' prior notice, unless more timely action

is necessary to respond to a Force Majeure situation, to balance the

Agreement to the extent consistent with the applicable Rate Schedule,

or to maintain system integrity.


(c) (1) As used in this Section 5.2(c), Firm Daily

Volume shall mean the volume of gas which Natural is obligated to

deliver on a firm basis for Shipper at primary Delivery Point(s) under

a firm contract on a Day, based on nominations for firm service within

firm contract rights at such primary points which could be confirmed

plus any applicable firm no-notice rights Shippers seek to exercise on

that Day within its firm contract rights under that contract. Except as

otherwise provided in this Section 5.2(c) of these General Terms and

Conditions, in the event Natural fails to deliver on any Day under any

firm contract at least 98% of Shipper's Firm Daily Volume for that Day,

then the applicable Reservation Charges and related reservation-based

surcharges shall be eliminated for the quantity of gas not delivered by

Natural within the Shipper's Firm Daily Volume under the contract.


(2) Notwithstanding subsection (1) above, if,


(i) Natural, for any Day, posts on its

interactive website a restriction in firm capacity affecting a segment

within the path between Shipper's Primary Receipt Point(s) and Primary

Delivery Point(s) that includes a minimum percentage of firm MDQ that

will be available to Shipper through the restricted area; and
