GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

7. SERVICE AGREEMENT AND TERM

 

The rights and obligations of Southern Star and each Shipper shall be

governed by the executed service agreement between the parties.

 

The executed service agreement may vary from the applicable Form of

Service Agreement in Southern Star's tariff by page headers, placement

on the page, number of pages, format, capitalization and font.

 

The term shall be specified by mutual agreement. The date blank(s) in

the Term section of a pro forma service agreement may be filled in with

specific date(s) or with reference(s) related to the in service date of

Southern Star facilities or the receipt of governmental approvals or

other defined events, as appropriate. Additionally, after the defined

event occurs, Southern Star may send a notice to the other party

confirming the actual term dates.

 

Agreements for firm service having a primary term of less than five

years shall not be entitled to evergreen rights. Agreements for firm

service having a primary term or extended term of at least five

continuous years of service wherein Shipper pays Southern Star's maximum

rate as stated on the applicable Tariff Sheet No. 10, 10A, or 11 for the

most recent five-year period within the term of the contract prior to

its termination date, will continue for successive five year terms

thereafter, unless canceled, effective at the end of the term, by twelve

months advance written notice by either party; provided, however, that

for all such discounted service agreements with terms of five years or

more which were in effect prior to August 1, 2009, the evergreen right

will apply once at the end of the current term.

 

Service agreements and the terms thereof are governed by the Natural Gas

Act, the Natural Gas Policy Act and FERC regulations promulgated

thereunder.

 

Failure to pay (1) amounts due for service rendered pursuant to executed

service agreements, or (2) charges otherwise authorized under this FERC

Gas Tariff will subject Shipper to suspension of service and/or

termination of the service agreement as set forth in Section 18 (Billing

and Payments).

 

The interpretation, performance and enforcement of all Agreements shall

be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Kentucky.
