444Type of Contracts:Natural Gas Supply – Year 2008 For the Firm GSA (“Contrato Firme”), the business model is the traditional one: Comgás buys natural gas from Petrobras anddistributes to existing markets receiving its distribution margin. Natural Gas distribution couldn’t be interrupted. In Firm Energy GSA (“Contrato Firme Flexível”) model, customer has the guarantee of operational continuity, once the gassupply interruption will only happen after Oil Distribution Company delivers an alternative fuel at customer installation. Beyondthis guarantee, customer does not take the risk of fuel alternative additional costs related to natural gas. Petrobras will bear thosecost. Under this agreement, gas can be interrupted by power plant dispatch, technical restriction and major force affecting thegas system. A government measures is not applicable in this case Comgás will manage gas supply interruption and alternativesupply by Oil Distribution Company, receiving its distribution margin for this service as if there was the continuity of natural gassupply. In this modality, customer interruption produces only the operational conversion to the alternative fuel. Two businessstructures were analyzed to make viable the implementation of such agreement and the more adherent to the Comgás realityrelies on the above-explained option. For the Preferential GSA, (“Contrato Interruptível”) the business model is based on a call for Comgás to interrupt the gas flowby Petrobras upon any power plant dispatch called by ONS (Electricity National Grid Operator) in area of influence of the gaspipeline system (West, South and Southeast regions). This is the unique situation where Petrobras can limit molecule flow toComgás under this agreement. In case of interruption, Comgás must reduce market demand accordingly to avoid penalties andinterrupted customers must revert to alternative fuel with no financial compensation either by Comgás or Petrobras. In case ofnon-availability of the alternative in the market, the risk is only and exclusively of the customers.
