Natural Gas Liquefaction, Storage and Delivery Service

(Guilford County, North Carolina)







5.2 Daily Liquefaction Quantity


Pine Needle shall endeavor to liquefy on any day as much of Customer's

nomination for such day as plant operating conditions permit. If,

however, on any day, the total of all Customers' nominations exceed

the liquefaction capacity of the plant then the nominations will be

allocated based on Customer's proportionate share of the total

liquefaction capacity, but Customer shall not be allocated less than

its Liquefaction Quantity unless caused by a force majeure event or

operating conditions as provided in Section 11 of the General Terms

and Conditions.


Customer's Liquefied Natural Gas Balance will be increased by the

quantity of gas delivered (or caused to be delivered) by Customer to

Pine Needle on that day.


5.3 Pine Needle shall be obligated to accept gas for liquefaction in

accordance with the above procedure only when Customer's Liquefied

Natural Gas Balance is less than Customer's Storage Capacity.





6.1 Nominations


Customer shall nominate service under this rate schedule in accordance

with Section 17.1 of the General Terms and Conditions when Customer

desires the vaporization and delivery of gas (or delivery of liquefied

natural gas under Section 6.3 of this rate schedule) stored for

Customer's account under this rate schedule. Pine Needle, in its sole

discretion, may waive any nomination deadline, on a non-discriminatory

basis, if Pine Needle determines operating conditions permit. Subject

to confirmation by the downstream pipeline transporter(s), Customer

may request changes in the scheduled daily quantities during a

particular day for the remainder of that day in accordance with the

timelines set forth in Section 17.1 of the General Terms and

Conditions, provided such change(s) does not reduce the quantities

below any quantity already vaporized and delivered during that day.

Pine Needle will accommodate such changes, if in Pine Needle's sole

judgement, such changes can be made without adverse impact to its
