GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(continued)

 

19. CAPACITY RELEASE (continued)

 

(b) Transporter shall accept nominations, schedule service,

afford priority of service and interrupt service based on

instructions and communications from the releasing Shipper

and the replacement Shipper which are consistent with one

another and with the terms and conditions of Transporter's

Tariff and their respective Service Agreements. In the

event that instructions or nominations from the releasing

Shipper and replacement Shipper are, in Transporter's

opinion, inconsistent or conflicting, Transporter shall

comply with the instructions of the releasing Shipper;

provided, however, that such instructions must not be

inconsistent with Transporter's Tariff or the terms of

either the releasing Shipper's or replacement Shipper's

Service Agreement, in Transporter's opinion. The releasing

Shipper will indemnify Transporter against any claim or suit

by the replacement Shipper, its successors or assigns,

arising from any action taken by Transporter in reliance

upon the releasing Shipper's nominations and instructions

and will hold Transporter harmless for any action taken by

Transporter in reliance upon the nominations and scheduling

instructions of the replacement Shipper; provided, however,

that the releasing Shipper shall not be liable for the

replacement Shipper's failure to pay the commodity or usage

charges (plus surcharges, fuel retentions, penalties, etc.)

billed to the replacement Shipper and attributable to its

usage of the released capacity. The replacement Shipper

will indemnify Transporter against any claim or suit by the

releasing Shipper, its successors or assigns, arising from

any action taken by Transporter in reliance upon the

nominations and scheduling instructions of the replacement

Shipper and will hold Transporter harmless for any actions

taken by Transporter in reliance upon the instructions of

the releasing Shipper.

 

19.10 Marketing Fee. If Transporter and the releasing Shipper so agree,

Transporter may receive a negotiated fee for its marketing
