5.1(c)(5) of these General Terms and Conditions. Natural shall provide a

written explanation if such a request is denied because the flow reversal

is not operationally feasible. A Shipper may segment a backhaul, but

such segmentation shall be subject to review by Natural on a case-by-case

basis as to whether a backhaul on each resulting segment is operationally

feasible. The Shipper (or Replacement Shipper in the case of a release)

may nominate service at Receipt and Delivery Points for the path segment

that results in a reverse flow from the original path; however, a forward

haul will be treated as being outside of the path if the original path is

a backhaul, as provided in Section 5.5 of these General Terms and

Conditions. Subject to the availability of point capacity and to

ordinary nomination procedures, deliveries may be made at the same point

for a forward haul on the upstream segment and a backhaul of the

downstream segment. The forward haul will have priority at the point if

the point capacity is not adequate. At the point of segmentation, the

upstream Shipper may nominate deliveries up to MDQ and the downstream

Shipper may nominate receipts up to MDQ, subject to constraints on point

capacity and ordinary scheduling procedures and priorities.


(f) (1) Subject to the remainder of this subsection

8.14(f), the Releasing and Replacement Shipper involved in a segmented

release may each choose primary Receipt Points and primary Delivery Points

within the applicable zones equal to their respective contract MDQs after

the release; provided, however, that the resulting segments may not

overlap. If the points chosen are within the path of the original

Agreement and do not involve changing a primary point thereunder, the point

designations shall be accepted, subject only to the availability of firm

capacity at those points and agreement on the rate applicable at the new

primary points. If one or more points are within the zone but outside the

path of the original Agreement, then the point change provision in Section

5.1(c)(5) of these General Terms and Conditions and the provisions of

subsection 8.14(f)(2) shall apply. If capacity is not available at the

point or to the point, the Shipper may designate such points (not

overlapping with other segments) in defining a segment, but the points

shall have secondary point priority (either in-path or out-of-path, as



(2) A Shipper, a Replacement Shipper or a

Subreplacement Shipper may change the primary Receipt or Delivery Points

listed in the Agreement to new primary point(s) subject to the point change

provisions of Section 5.1(c)(5) of these General Terms and Conditions, if

the Shipper (or in the case of a release, the Original Shipper) and Natural

agree to amend the Agreement to change the primary Receipt and Delivery

Point accordingly; provided, however, that consent of the original Shipper

shall not be required in the case of a permanent release by that original

Shipper of its firm capacity. Natural shall not be obligated to reserve
