Shipper's IT Contract, no Shipper receiving interruptible service,

including service related to the transportation of Authorized

Overrun Quantities under Rate Schedule FT, FT-SG IT, may be

curtailed due to a capacity limitation which is the result of a

change during the month in interruptible transportation service

confirmed pursuant to Section 3.4 for any day shall be

resolved by the payment or crediting by Transporter to

Shipper, in the situation where receipts by
