GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Section 20

(Continued)

 

 

20.5 Gulf Crossing may agree to pay all or part of the costs of the

Requested Facilities and their Construction, other related costs

and tax gross up if the Construction is economically or

operationally beneficial to Gulf Crossing. In determining

economic or operational benefit, Gulf Crossing may consider the

following factors, among others: costs of the Requested

Facilities and their Construction; the estimated incremental

throughput and/or revenues attributable to the Requested

Facilities; the related costs and tax gross up attributable to

the Requested Facilities; the marketability of the capacity

associated with the Requested Facilities; the location of the

markets associated with the Requested Facilities; the

interruptible or firm nature of the transportation service; the

availability of capital funds on terms and conditions acceptable

to Gulf Crossing; the time value of money; increased system or

operational reliability or flexibility; and increased access to

new supplies or markets.

 

20.6 Subject to Section 20.3 above, the Requesting Customer may

construct its own interconnect facilities at its sole expense;

provided, however, such interconnecting facilities shall meet all

of Gulf Crossing's technical and engineering requirements. These

interconnect facilities shall be built to Gulf Crossing's

pipeline but only Gulf Crossing shall construct the tap, at the

Requesting Customers sole cost, to complete the interconnect.

 

20.7 Lateral Line Policy - Gulf Crossing will not build or contribute

to the cost of building any lateral pipelines to Customers,

except where Gulf Crossing determines that such construction or

contribution is economically advantageous to Gulf Crossing or

Gulf Crossing is obligated, pursuant to its agreements for

service to its Customers to seek requisite authorization to

expand, enlarge or augment its existing lateral pipelines, where

necessary, to meet the increased requirements of Customers

receiving service. This Section shall not require Gulf Crossing

to file an application for a certificate of public convenience

and necessity under Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act unless

obligated to do so pursuant to an agreement. Further, this

Section shall not prevent Gulf Crossing from contesting an

application for service.
