Release Request), Transporter shall enter into a new

entitled to the right of first refusal even if the

The Releasing Shipper shall have no further rights or

obligations to Transporter in the future under that

Contract. Notwithstanding anything herein to the

contrary, the Releasing Shipper shall not be relieved

under the "Cosmic Settlement" in Docket Nos. RP86-119,

et al., or Transporter's settlement in Docket No. RP91-

which were incurred during the time the Releasing

agreed to and paid in full by the Replacement Shipper.

shall be the applicable maximum reservation rate and

rate for a release of less than one year.
