For purposes of determining the Quantity of Gas of Buyer in storage as

of April 1 of each year until the April 1 immediately following

expiration of Buyer's Underground Storage Service Agreement,


(a) the Quantity of Gas shall be (i) the Quantity of Gas of Buyer in

storage as of the preceding April 1, plus (ii) the Quantity of Gas

received for injection (net of the Injection Allowance) during the

intervening contract year less (iii) the Quantity of Gas withdrawn

and delivered (including the Withdrawal Allowance) during the

intervening contract year.


In the event that immediately following the last contract year in which

the service agreement is in effect there remains in storage any Quantity

of Gas of Buyer of which Buyer, for reasons other than Transporter's

sole negligence or willful breach of the terms of service hereunder, has

not taken delivery, Buyer shall pay to Transporter for each month or

portion thereof during which any of Buyer's gas remains in storage an

amount equal to the amount payable in the final month of such last

contract year, and Buyer shall have the right to take delivery of such

remaining Quantity at the Maximum Daily Withdrawal Quantity.




On any day for which Buyer, through the injection notice required by

Subparagraph 2.2, requests Transporter to receive for injection

Quantities of Gas in excess of said Buyer's Maximum Daily Injection

Quantity, together with the applicable Injection Allowance, Transporter

shall determine what, if any, portion of the excess Quantity of Gas it

will receive, subject always to Transporter's firm obligation to receive

gas scheduled for injection by other Buyers under Transporter's Rate

Schedules ESS, FSS, SS-1 and SS-2 up to their Maximum Daily Injection

Quantities. Transporter may, in making such determination, take into

account the fact that one or more other such Buyers have scheduled

Quantities of Gas for injection which are less than their Maximum Daily

Injection Quantities, but Transporter shall not be obligated to receive

such excess Quantities of Gas except to the extent that Transporter may,

in its sole judgment, determine that it is expedient for it to do so.

Having made such determination, Transporter will receive excess
