Each PALS Request Order shall specify in Dth the MAQ and a

daily schedule of the quantities (including the MDQ) to be parked

and/or loaned under the specific transaction. The daily schedule

of returned volumes by the Shipper or MEP shall also be specified

in the PALS Request Order. The quantities may be specified as a

range of volumes (maximum and minimum aggregate and daily

quantities and the related time periods) to be parked and/or loaned

and returned, and the schedule may include the flexibility to do

either a park or a loan within specified volume and time limits.

The schedule may provide for flexibility in total volumes and in

the daily volumes parked and/or loaned, in the timing of the park

or the loan (or any portion thereof), in the duration of the park

and/or loan (or any portion thereof) and/or the timing of the

completion of the park or loan (or any portion thereof) by the

return of gas to the Shipper or to MEP, and shall specify the

limits of the flexibility allowed. Subject to the flexibility

specified in the PALS Request Order, the MDQ RO shall be the

maximum quantity MEP is obligated, on an interruptible basis, to

receive from or deliver to Shipper under the PALS Request Order on

the specified day. The MAQ RO shall be the maximum aggregate

quantity MEP is obligated to hold or loan for the account of

Shipper under the RO. The minimum aggregate and daily volumes to

be parked and/or loaned and returned on an interruptible basis

shall also be specified in the PALS Request Order. The sum total

of a Shipper's MAQ ROs and MDQ ROs shall not exceed the MAQ and MDQ

specified in the PALS Agreement. If a Shipper exceeds the MDQ or

MAQ in the PALS Agreement or fails to comply with any quantity or

timing parameter in the applicable PALS Request Order (unless such

failure is due to MEP not confirming a nomination properly

submitted), it shall be subject to overrun charges.
