18.5 Rejection by Transporter. Transporter may, in its reasonable discretion, reject any proposed

transfer if it determines that such transfer cannot be accommodated: (i) without diminishing Transporter's

ability to provide firm service to any Shipper; (ii) without increasing Transporter's firm service

obligations; (iii) because the gas sought to be transferred is not on Transporter's system; (iv) because of

the actual account status of the transferor's and transferee's accounts, as reflected in Transporter's

records; (v) because the transfer is requested to have a retroactive effective date; or (vi) without

threatening the integrity of Transporter's system. If the transfer is rejected pursuant to this

Section 18.5, Transporter shall provide the Shipper seeking to transfer imbalance that Shipper's actual

account status under the applicable Service Agreement.
