(c) MEP shall tender an IBS Agreement to Shipper for

execution when Shipper's request for service is accepted. Unless

waived by MEP, a request for service shall be invalid if Shipper

fails to execute an IBS Agreement hereunder within ten (10) days

after an IBS Agreement which accurately reflects the requested

service has been tendered by MEP for execution; provided, however,

that MEP shall waive this time requirement if this delay is not

unreasonable. MEP will post on the Informational Posting portion of

its Interactive Website if it declines to waive the time requirement.


3.2 Requests for service hereunder shall be deemed valid

only after the following information is provided by Shipper via MEP's

Interactive Website or in writing to MEP's Gas Transportation

Department at One Allen Center, 500 Dallas, Houston, Texas 77002, or

Telecopy Number (713) 369-9325:




Shipper shall identify in its request an FTS or ITS

Agreement to which service hereunder will be linked. Such linkage

must be consistent with this Rate Schedule IBS. The balancing service

hereunder shall relate to the volumes delivered to the Delivery

Point(s) on behalf of the end-use facility or facilities under the

linked transportation Agreement. The effectiveness of the IBS

Agreement is contingent upon Shipper having and continuing in effect

the linked FTS or ITS Agreement, unless the parties agree on a

substitute linked transportation Agreement. The linked

transportation Agreement may be a released transportation Agreement

but the Replacement Shipper must enter into a separate IBS Agreement;

it cannot rely on the IBS Agreement of the Releasing Shipper.

Service hereunder is not available at any Point on Leased Capacity.




The request must specify the MDQ under the IBS

Agreement. The MDQ of the IBS Agreement may be equal to or less than

the MDQ of the linked transportation Agreement. If the transportation

Agreement is linked to more than one IBS Agreement, then the sum of

the MDQs under IBS Agreements served by that linked transportation

Agreement must be equal to or less than the transportation contract

MDQ. The MDQ under an IBS Agreement must also be consistent with the
