GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
4. QUALITY OF GAS (continued)
4.4 Verification of Gas Quality. At Algonquin's request, Customer shall use all reasonable
efforts to obtain and provide to Algonquin all records regarding gas quality kept by
upstream pipelines transporting the gas received by Algonquin for Customer's account.
Customer shall use all reasonable efforts to ensure and verify for Algonquin that such
upstream pipelines are using appropriate equipment to monitor compliance with the gas
quality specifications applicable on Algonquin's system as stated in this Section 4.
4.5 Failure To Conform to Specifications. If the gas tendered by Customer for receipt by
Algonquin, or offered for delivery by Algonquin to Customer, shall fail at any time to
conform to any of the specifications set forth in this Section 4, then the party
asserting such deficiency shall notify the other of such deficiency and may, at its
option, refuse to accept nonconforming gas pending correction by Algonquin or Customer
as appropriate. Algonquin may refuse to accept gas or may impose additional gas quality
specifications and restrictions if Algonquin, in its reasonable judgment, determines
that harm to Algonquin's facilities or operations could reasonably be expected to occur
if it receives gas that fails to meet such additional specifications and restrictions.
4.6 Odorization. Algonquin shall have no obligation to odorize the gas tendered by Customer
other than to conform to the regulations of appropriate governmental authorities having
jurisdiction. However, if Algonquin odorizes the gas, such odorization shall be by use
of a malodorant agent of such character as to indicate by a distinctive odor the
presence of gas. Whenever odorized gas is delivered, the quality and specifications, as
set forth in this Section 4, of such gas shall be determined prior to the addition of
malodorant or with proper allowance for changes or additions due to such malodorant.
Such odorization of the gas by Algonquin shall be for the purpose of detection of the
gas only during the time when the gas is in the possession of Algonquin, prior to
delivery to the Customer.
4.7 Waiver of Requirements. Algonquin may waive the requirements set forth in this Section
4 in order to allow Customer to tender or cause to be tendered gas which does not, when
injected into Algonquin's pipeline, meet the quality specifications set forth in Section
4; provided that acceptance of such gas shall not adversely affect Algonquin's system
facilities or operations, and further provided that once such gas has been blended, to
the extent blending occurs, the commingled gas stream at any delivery point on
Algonquin's system shall be compliant with the quality specifications set forth in
Section 4. Algonquin shall post on LINK® any waiver of Algonquin's gas quality
requirements. Algonquin shall implement this Section 4.7 on a non-discriminatory basis
and may cancel any waiver at any time if necessary to assure that the commingled gas
stream is compliant with the quality specifications set forth in Section 4 at any
delivery point on Algonquin's system.
