Firm Transportation Service







2.9 Shipper may request Transporter to receive, transport, and deliver

quantities of natural gas in excess of Shipper's MDQ on any day

under the FT Service Agreement. In such case, Transporter will

determine whether the delivery capacity of its system will permit

such receipt, transportation, and delivery without impairing the

ability of Transporter to meet its other delivery obligations.

Deliveries pursuant to such scheduled Overrun Transportation shall

be subordinated to all firm transportation services and shall be

scheduled, together with transportation under Rate Schedule IT.


2.10 A Shipper receiving service under this rate schedule under a

service agreement with a primary term of fifteen (15) years or

longer shall have the right to extend the term of the service

agreement at maximum recourse rates in five (5) year increments by

giving written notice to Transporter twelve (12) months prior to

the termination date in effect at the time such notice is given.

For purposes of this provision, a service agreement entered into

to restate a pre-existing service agreement of Empire State

Pipeline with a primary term of fifteen (15) years or longer will

be considered to have a primary term of fifteen (15) years or

longer, as long as the primary term of the restated agreement

extends to a date no earlier then the end of the primary term of

such pre-existing agreement.


2.11 Unless otherwise agreed to by Transporter, Shipper is responsible

for making all arrangements for any transportation desired by

Shipper upstream or downstream of Transporter's facilities.
