GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
8. OPERATING CONDITIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Cont'd)
Southern Star may receive odorized gas by mutual agreement but
shall not be obligated to odorize gas or to receive odorized gas
in circumstances where the receipt of such gas may adversely
affect the end use of such gas.
8.5 Credit Worthiness
Southern Star shall not be required to perform or to continue
service under this FERC Gas Tariff on behalf of any Shipper who is
or has become insolvent or who, at Southern Star's request, fails
within a reasonable period to demonstrate creditworthiness;
provided, however, such Shipper may receive service for existing
capacity under this FERC Gas Tariff if Shipper maintains a
prepayment for three months of such service. Southern Star will
evaluate creditworthiness on a non-discriminatory basis. Any
Party desiring reassigned capacity under Section 11, must also
satisfy these creditworthiness requirements.
Non-creditworthy shippers desiring to establish credit sufficient
to acquire newly developed capacity must provide a letter of
credit, parent guaranty or prepayment equivalent to the cost of
the expansion capital required to build the new capacity.
Any Party may submit evidence of creditworthiness prior to
requesting a service agreement or bidding for capacity and, to the
extent of credit approval, be placed on an Approved Bidder List
for creditworthiness purposes for new and reassigned capacity.
Southern Star will periodically review and, if necessary, revise
the Approved Bidder List and the extent of any party's
creditworthiness. A party on the Approved Bidder List will remain
on that list (1) until such party notifies Southern Star to remove
its name from such list, (2) until such party no longer meets
Southern Star's creditworthiness requirements, or (3) until such
party fails to pay part or all of the amount of any bill for
service under this FERC Gas Tariff.
