12.1 The total quantity of natural gas needed by

Transporter for the purging, pressuring and

maintaining pressure on Transporter's system,

testing of Transporter's facilities, and for

major expansions or line additions ("Line Pack")

shall be purchased by Transporter pro rata from

all firm shippers, unless Transporter can

purchase Line Pack directly from a third party at

less cost. When Line Pack is needed, Shipper's

portion of Line Pack shall be based pro rata on

Shipper's MDQ and Transporter's total firm MDQs.

The price per MMBtu to be paid Shipper for Line

Pack Gas sold to Transporter shall be Shipper's

average cost per MMBtu for all gas delivered by

Shipper to Transporter during the month in which

Transporter purchases such gas from Shipper.


Transporter and Shipper recognize that not all

firm shippers may have natural gas available for

Line Pack as of the date when such volumes are

required by Transporter. Transporter and Shipper

agree that those having Line Pack Gas available

when such volumes are required by Transporter

shall furnish the necessary quantity of natural

gas for Line Pack and any excess natural gas so

furnished shall be reimbursed in natural gas on a

thermal equivalent basis by Transporter from

natural gas delivered by such other firm Shippers

not having natural gas available on the date when

such volumes are required by Transporter as

natural gas is received by Transporter from such

other firm Shippers for transportation. If the

quantity of Line Pack Gas sold by Shipper is

determined to exceed at any time Shipper's

portion of the total Line Pack required by

Transporter, then such excess shall not be

reimbursed but shall be applied to any future

Line Pack increase required by Transporter from

Shipper until such excess is eliminated.


From time to time Line Pack quantities shall be

adjusted upward when deemed appropriate by

Transporter in its sole judgment and will reflect

Shipper's MDQ at such times.


Following occurrences when Line Pack quantities

are required (other than normal daily losses)

Transporter shall estimate the quantity of

natural gas needed and shall specify when such

quantity shall be sold and delivered to

Transporter by Shipper and other firm shippers to

meet such requirements. Upon notification by

Transporter, Shipper shall sell and deliver to

Transporter such natural gas based pro rata upon

Shipper's MDQ and Transporter's total firm MDQs
