For the services provided or contracted for hereunder, Shipper

agrees to pay Panhandle the then-effective, applicable rates and

charges under Panhandle's Rate Schedule WS filed with the Commission,

as such rates and charges and Rate Schedule WS may hereafter be

modified, supplemented, superseded, or replaced generally or as to

the service hereunder. Panhandle reserves the right from time to

time to unilaterally file and to make effective any such changes in

the terms or rate levels under Rate Schedule WS and the applicability

thereof, the General Terms and Conditions or any other provisions of

Panhandle's Tariff, subject to the applicable provisions of the

Natural Gas Act and the Commission's Regulations thereunder.


From time to time Panhandle and Shipper may agree in writing,

on a level of discount of the otherwise applicable rates and charges

hereunder, pursuant to the effective applicable provisions of Rate

Schedule WS and subject to the Regulations and Orders of the

Commission. For example, Panhandle and Shipper may agree that a

specified discounted rate shall apply: (a) only to certain

Quantities under this Agreement; (b) only if specified Quantity

levels are actually achieved or only with respect to Quantities below

a specified level; (c) only during specified time periods; or (d) in

a specified relationship to the Quantities actually injected,

withdrawn or stored (i.e., that the rates shall be adjusted in a

specified relationship to Quantities actually injected, withdrawn or

stored); provided, however, that any such discounted rate set forth

above shall be between the Maximum Rate and Minimum Rate applicable

to the service provided under this Agreement. In addition, the

discount agreement may include a provision that if one rate component

which was at or below the applicable Maximum Rate at the time the

discount agreement was executed subsequently exceeds the applicable

Maximum Rate due to a change in Panhandle's Maximum Rates so that

such rate component must be adjusted downward to equal the new

applicable Maximum Rate, then other rate components may be adjusted

upward to achieve the agreed overall rate, so long as none of the

resulting rate components exceed the Maximum Rate applicable to that

rate component. Such changes to rate components shall be applied

prospectively, commencing with the date a Commission order accepts

revised tariff sheets. However, nothing contained herein shall be

construed to alter a refund obligation under applicable law for any

period during which rates which had been charged under a discount

agreement exceeded rates which ultimately are found to be just and

reasonable. Any discount(s) shall be effective only on a prospective

basis and as specified in the written agreement between Panhandle and



From time to time Panhandle and Shipper may agree to a

Negotiated Rate for a specified term for service hereunder.

Provisions governing such Negotiated Rate and term shall be set forth

on Exhibit A hereto.
