Hub Service - Parking 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.


Shipper is placed on notice that Transporter may recognize storage gas

losses for rate and accounting purposes. Such losses shall be valued at

the current replacement cost of gas. After accounting recognition of

any such loss, Transporter shall record and maintain a regulatory asset

account which shall be maintained until Transporter's next general rate

change filing under Section 4 of the Natural Gas Act. In any of

Transporter's general rate change filings, Transporter may propose to

amortize storage gas losses through its base rates. This provision

shall apply to storage gas losses incurred but unamortized as of the

date upon which this provision becomes effective, and to those incurred

after that date.




Not less than thirty (30) days prior to the termination of storage

service provided to any Shipper under this Rate Schedule, Transporter

will notify Shipper of Shipper's Storage Balance. If the Storage

Balance is positive, then the Shipper will withdraw such quantities

within thirty (30) days of the termination of the storage service.
