Firm Transportation Service



(iv) In the event capacity is not available to satisfy a request, such request

for service will be maintained, if such SHIPPER or potential SHIPPER desires,

in a firm service queue subject to the notice requirements above in Section

4(f). If and when capacity subsequently becomes available, such capacity

will be allocated to pending requests in the firm service queue, on the

date such capacity becomes available based on the highest net present value

of the pending requests as provided above unless TRANSPORTER elects to

conduct an open season as provided in 4(g)(v) below. Notwithstanding the

above, any available capacity will be awarded first to pending requests of

existing shippers requesting increases in MDQs pursuant to Section 4(b) above;

and if available capacity for any Delivery Period cannot complete all such

pending requests, the available capacity will be allocated to all such

requests on a pro rata basis. If an open season is conducted, SHIPPER(s) or

or potential SHIPPER(s) with pending requests in the firm service queue shall

be individually notified and given an opportunity to participate in such open

season. If such SHIPPER or potential SHIPPER elects not to participate in any

such open season, then, at the end of the open season, its pending request

shall be deemed null and void.


(v) In addition to the procedures set forth in Section 4(g)(iv) above,

TRANSPORTER shall have the right, but shall not be obligated, from

time to time to hold open seasons for potential expansion projects

or for capacity which has become available. Notwithstanding the above,

to the extent Transporter plans a scheduled maintenance event which is

reasonably expected by Transporter to cause Transporter to limit

interruptible transportation service on mainline capacity for more than ten

(10) days, Transporter will hold an open season by posting a notice on

SoNet for a minimum period of 48 hours during which Shippers may submit

requests for firm transportation pursuant to Section 16 of the

General Terms and Conditions for a term not less than a month during

which the maintenance event occurs. The open season will be held for at

least 24 hours during a business day. Such scheduled maintenance event

shall not include force majeure events, unscheduled maintenance events

and any maintenance not affecting mainline capacity at individual receipt

points or delivery points or small laterals. During any such open season,

TRANSPORTER shall allocate the capacity subject to such open season on

the basis of the highest net present value to TRANSPORTER, as determined

pursuant to the method described in Section 4(g)(i) above. To the extent

TRANSPORTER has available unsubscribed capacity, TRANSPORTER reserves the

right, but shall not be obligated, to reserve such capacity for future open

seasons that are to be held within the next twenty-four (24) months. All

requests received during an open season remain binding on the requesting

SHIPPER through the end of the open season unless withdrawn by the requesting

SHIPPER; provided, however, a
