C. Procedures to Obtain Firm Capacity at a New Location Within Shipper's


Firm Shippers interested in obtaining firm capacity at a new location

or an increase in MDQ at an existing location, which new location or

increase in MDQ requires the construction of facilities but not the

increase in Shipper's total contractual MDTQ, shall submit a request

for capacity pursuant to Section 3 of the FTS-1, FTS-WD or FTS-2 Rate

Schedule, but which contains only the information relevant to the

changes requested.


D. Construction of Facilities

Transporter shall have no obligation to modify its existing

facilities or construct new facilities in order to receive or deliver

Shipper's gas unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. However,

if a Shipper requests new or additional transportation service and

Transporter is agreeable to providing the requested service it will

do so on the following terms, unless otherwise agreed to in writing,

on a not unduly discriminatory basis:

1. If Transporter agrees to construct, own and operate lateral

pipelines (if applicable), metering and regulating facilities

that include electronic measurement and data communication

equipment (if applicable) and/or new and/or additional points of

delivery to such Shipper or points of receipt from such Shipper:

(1) the metering and regulating facilities shall be installed at

point(s) which, in Transporter's reasonable judgment, is the

most practical, convenient and readily accessible location; (2)

the lateral pipeline (if any) shall be installed by use of not

less than a nominal four-inch (4") diameter pipe; (3) the

Shipper will provide all exhibits necessary to support the

proposed service for any needed FERC proceedings and; (4) the

Shipper will contribute an aid-to-construction amount to

Transporter which is equal to the cost of the additional

facilities including all costs involved in filing any

applications, pursuing said approvals, and in obtaining all

licenses and permits required for the services or construction

and, further, amounts necessary to reimburse any costs,

including any income taxes that may be incurred by Transporter

as a result of the contribution. Transporter and Shipper will

agree on which party will construct and/or own and/or operate

any facilities to be constructed.

2. Shippers, whether new or existing, shall bear all costs and

expenses attributable to the construction of any lateral

pipelines or expansions of existing lateral pipelines. Nothing

in this section shall require Transporter to file an application

for a certificate of public convenience and necessity under

Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act.
