3.1 Firm transportation services of Transporter under this Rate

Schedule FTS shall have priority over all Transporter's interruptible

sales and interruptible transportation services. Subject to the

conditions set forth in Section 12.3 (c) of the General Terms and

Conditions, service under a firm Transportation Service Agreement shall

have equal priority for system capacity with firm sales. Service

hereunder may be curtailed due to capacity constraints on Transporter's

system, in which case curtailment of all Shippers under Rate Schedule

FTS shall be pro rata based on nomination within MDTQ. If at any time

existing conditions require the utilization of capacity then being

devoted to transportation services in order to maintain the integrity

of Transporter's system or any part thereof, Transporter may curtail

service hereunder pursuant to the provisions of this Section 3.1.

Service hereunder shall not be subject to supply-related curtailments

under Section 8 of the General Terms and Conditions of Transporter's

Second Revised Volume No. 1 Tariff. If Transporter experiences a

capacity curtailment on a portion of its system, it shall (to the

extent practicable), curtail only those Shippers with service affected

by that portion of the system.


3.2 Transporter shall issue public notice that it is accepting

requests for transportation service hereunder. Transporter shall issue

such notice a minimum of ten (l0) days prior to the date that

Transporter commences accepting requests for firm transportation

service hereunder. Transporter shall make available to satisfy

requests for service hereunder any capacity which, at any time, it has

available on a firm basis in excess of such firm capacity already

committed. Determination of available firm capacity on Transporter's

system shall be made from time to time as capacity becomes available or

as requests for service are received hereunder. In processing valid

requests for service as specified in Section 12 of the Transportation

General Terms and Conditions of this Volume No. 1-A Tariff, Transporter

shall allocate any available firm capacity in the following order:
