such other Buyer agrees in writing to the transfer.


(b) Requests to Transfer; LNG Inventory Transfer Form. Operator will, upon a Buyer's

acceptance or rejection pursuant to Section 11(c) below of the proposed transfer.

Transfers shall be effective upon Operator's notice of acceptance. Retroactive

transfers shall not be permitted.


(c) Rejection by Operator. Operator may reject any proposed transfer under this Section

11 if it determines that such transfer cannot be accommodated: (i) without

diminishing Operator's ability to provide firm service to any Buyer; (ii) without

increasing Operator's firm service obligations; (iii) because the LNG sought to be

transferred is not available in Buyer's account; (iv) because of an imbalance status

of the transferor's and transferee's accounts, as reflected in Operator's records; or

(v) because the requested transfer is retroactive.





The penalties set forth in this Section apply to all Operator's Rate Schedules, unless

otherwise indicated in this Section or in individual Rate Schedules.
