(F) Voluntary Contribution Mechanism


In addition to the foregoing, Pipeline will include in

invoices to Customers a voluntary contribution mechanism

allowing Customers to make voluntary contributions to GRI in

such amounts and for such GRI project(s) or project area(s)

as Customers specify. Customers may, but are not required

to, make such voluntary contributions. The voluntary

contribution mechanism is not a pipeline rate, rate

provision, or term or condition of service. It is included

in the invoice in accordance with the January 21, 1998,

Stipulation and Agreement Concerning GRI Funding approved by

the Commission in Gas Research Instute, 83 F.E.R.C. Par.

61,093 (1998), Order on Rehearing, 83 F.E.R.C. Par. 61,331

(1998). Any amounts remitted to Pipeline pursuant to the

voluntary contribution mechanism shall be forwarded to GRI

by Pipeline and are not refundable by Pipeline.

Annual charges are assessed against gas pipelines by the

Commission under Part 382 of the Commission's Regulations

this Section 15.5 is effective, it is Pipeline's intent not

to seek recovery of any annual charges assessed Pipeline

pursuant to Part 382 of the Commission's Regulations and

Order Nos. 472 and 472-B except as permitted by this

Section 15.5. This ACA Surcharge is in addition to any

amounts otherwise payable to Pipeline under said Rate Sched-

The ACA Surcharge shall be applicable to the quantities

delivered for Customer's account under Pipeline's Rate

Schedules, which Rate Schedules shall include the following:
