14.1 Nomination Procedure for Gas Receipts and Deliveries. Nominating

Party shall nominate to Transporter's Nomination personnel no later

than 10 a.m. Mountain Time (Mountain Standard Time or Daylight Savings

Time, whichever is currently effective), at least two working days in

advance of the first calendar day of each month, the quantity of MMBtus

of natural gas it desires to have transported from specific sources and

Receipt Points to specific Delivery Points for the following month.

During the month, Transporter will accept nomination changes no later

than 10 a.m., Mountain Time, one day in advance of initiation or

changes to service. In the event that Transporter determines that an

emergency exists, Transporter may also accept late nomination changes

after 10 a.m. Mountain Time if the existing operating conditions permit

such changes without compromising the operation of the system.


All nominations are subject to the following conditions:


(a) Transporter must determine that pipeline capacity is available

pursuant to the Priority of Service provisions of Section 12 of

the General Terms and Conditions.


(b) Nominating Party/Shipper is responsible to ensure that the gas

supply is available in sufficient quantity at the designated

Receipt Points before the nominations are communicated to

Transporter. Preceding the confirmation of nominations,

Transporter has the right to verify consistency of each

nomination with Transporter's service agreements with

Shipper(s), availability of capacity up and downstream of

Transporter's system, and the availability of mainline capacity

necessary to transport the gas. Transporter may reject

nominations if such information cannot be verified. Transporter

will notify Receiving Party and/or Nominating Party and/or

Shipper of the quantity that Transporter can receive and

deliver, pursuant to the procedures in Section 14.4 below.


(c) Nominating Party/Shipper is responsible for the accuracy of all

nomination requests. Transporter will only receive nominations

through Transporter's Northwest Passage PC Nomination System or

by telecopy. All nomination information, except volume data, is

considered correct and confirmed by Nominating Party when it is

communicated to Transporter.
