Hub Service - Parking Schedule



3. RATE (Cont'd)


3.4 During withdrawal of gas hereunder, Transporter will retain a quan-

tity of gas equal to the product obtained by multiplying the

quantity of gas withdrawn by the percentage set forth on Sheet No.

6 as "surface operating allowance", except as provided in Sub-

section 3.5 hereof.


3.5 Transporter is not obligated to offer to park or to park gas at any

rates or allowances less than the maximum rate and allowances

specified for this Rate Schedule on Sheet No. 6; however, nothing

precludes Transporter from charging a rate between the maximum and

minimum rate (current Posted Rate), or retaining less than the

maximum allowances for this service under this Rate Schedule.





In the event of a loss of gas from one or more storage fields utilized

by Transporter resulting from force majeure, such loss shall be

allocated among Transporter and each Shipper receiving service in

proportion to the quantities of gas (excluding base gas) of each in

storage immediately prior thereto as reasonably determined by Trans-

porter, and if such extraordinary loss exceeds the top gas balances of

Transporter and all such Shippers, such excess will be deemed to be from

Transporter's base gas. Losses of gas from storage fields utilized by

Transporter that are not losses resulting from force majeure, as defined

below, will be deemed to be gas from Transporter's base gas. For

purposes of this Section 4, a loss of gas resulting from force majeure

is a loss caused by any acts of God, strikes, lockouts, acts of the

public enemy, wars, blockades, insurrections, riots, epidemics,

landslides, lightning, earthquakes, fires, storms, floods, washouts,

arrests and restraints of rules and peoples, civil disturbances,

explosions, breakage or accident to machinery or line of pipe, line

freeze-ups, or similar causes.
