award if Pipeline is unable to contract with a

Replacement Customer, like any other Customer,

shall be subject to all applicable provisions of

Pipeline's FERC Gas Tariff.


B. Unless Pipeline expressly agrees otherwise,

Releasing Customer's Service Agreement with

Pipeline shall remain in effect until the normal

expiration of the contract term, notwithstanding

any capacity release transaction.

1. Releasing Customer shall remain liable on its

contract with Pipeline, and shall pay all

applicable reservation charges, and related

surcharges and interest, for released

however, that Pipeline and Customer may, in

connection with their agreement to a

Negotiated Rate, agree upon Releasing Customer

payment obligations and procedures and

crediting mechanisms in the event of a

capacity release that vary from or are in

addition to those set forth herein. The

provisions of this Section 23.4.B.1. do not
