any person (hereinafter called "Shipper") provided that: (i)

provide service on a firm basis throughout the requested term; (ii)

the General Terms and Conditions and executes a service agreement

for firm storage service under this FSS Rate Schedule in the form

contained in this Tariff; and (iii) said service complies with the

terms and conditions of this FSS Rate Schedule.
