7.1 Upon expiration or notice of termination from TransColorado of

a firm service agreement, with a term of 12 consecutive months or greater

at the maximum tariff rate, or multi-year seasonal maximum-rate contracts

for services not offered for a full 12 months, Shipper shall have a right

of first refusal to extend service under a new service agreement.

Shippers with firm service at discounted rates or negotiated-rate Shippers

with contracts entered into prior to March 26, 2000, with a term equal to

or greater than one year retain the right of first refusal. However, any

such grandfathered service agreement thereafter shall extend at the

maximum rate for twelve or more consecutive months of service or for a

term of more than one year for service not available for twelve

consecutive months in order to retain its ROFR beyond the extended term.

The Shipper must give TransColorado written notice that it will utilize

the right-of-first refusal procedure the earlier of (a) the date of the

notice period provided for in Shipper's contract; or (b) 90 days prior to

the expiration of the term of the contract. TransColorado shall provide

written notice to the Shipper 30 days in advance of the applicable

deadline. In the notice TransColorado will specify the information

Shippers need to provide to exercise their right of first refusal.

the open season periods provided for in Section 6 of these General Terms

and Conditions.
