Firm Storage Transportation Service





1.1 This rate schedule is available for transportation service by

National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation (hereinafter called "Trans-

porter"), associated with a firm storage service provided by

Transporter or a provider of storage service that interconnects

with Transporter, for any person (hereinafter called "Shipper")

provided that: (i) capacity is available on all portions of

Transporter's system (including primary receipt and delivery

points) necessary to provide service on a firm basis throughout the

requested term; (ii) Shipper makes a request for service as set

forth in Section 31 of the General Terms & Conditions and executes

a service agreement for firm transportation service under this FST

Rate Schedule in the form contained in this Tariff; and (iii) said

service complies with the terms and conditions of this FST Rate



1.2 For purposes of determining the availability of service in

processing requests for service hereunder, Transporter shall not be

required to grant any said request for transportation service: (i)

for which capacity is not available on any portion of its system

necessary to provide such service on a firm basis; provided,

however, that Transporter may not reject a request for service

hereunder solely because of the absence of equipment sufficient to

provide Transporter with real time measurement, communication and

control capability at any delivery point, unless the installation

of such equipment would not be operationally feasible, as deter-

mined by Transporter; (ii) which could in Transporter's judgment

interfere with the integrity of its system, or service to existing,

firm transportation or storage customers; (iii) which would require

the construction, modification, expansion or acquisition of any

facilities; (iv) if Transporter determines 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

according to the criteria set forth in Section 31.2 of the General

Terms and Conditions; or (v) if such service does not comply with

this FST Rate Schedule or the FST Service Agreement.
