TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

3. QUALITY (Continued)

 

3.7 Failure to Meet Specifications. If, at any time, gas tendered by

Shipper for transportation shall fail to conform to any of the

applicable quality specifications set forth in Sections 3.1 or 3.2

of the GT&C and Transporter notifies Shipper of such deficiency and

Shipper fails to remedy any such deficiency within a reasonable

period of time (immediately in those situations which threaten the

integrity of Transporter's system), Transporter may, at its option,

refuse to accept such gas pending correction of the deficiency by

Shipper or, Transporter may continue to accept the receipt of such

gas and make such changes as are necessary to cause the gas to

conform to such specifications, in which event Shipper shall

reimburse Transporter for all reasonable expenses incurred by

Transporter in effecting such changes, including operational and

gas costs associated with purging and/or venting the pipeline.

Failure by Shipper to tender quantities that conform to any of the

applicable quality specifications shall not be construed to

eliminate, or limit in any manner, the obligations of Shipper

existing under any other provisions of the Executed TSA. In the

event Natural Gas is delivered into Transporter's system that would

cause the Natural Gas in a portion of Transporter's pipeline to

become unmerchantable, then Transporter is permitted to act

expediently to make the gas merchantable again by any and all

reasonable methods, including, without limitation, venting the

pipeline of whatever quantity of Natural Gas is necessary to

achieve a merchantable stream of gas. Shipper shall reimburse

Transporter for all reasonable expenses incurred by Transporter to

obtain merchantable Natural Gas again, including operational and

gas costs associated with venting the pipeline. In such cases,

Transporter shall promptly notify Shipper of the non-conforming

supply and any steps taken to protect the merchantability of the

gas.

 

3.8 Gas Quality Monitoring Equipment. After giving sufficient notice

to a Shipper, Transporter shall have the right to collect from all

Shippers delivering gas to Transporter at a common Receipt Point

their volumetric pro rata share of the cost of any additional gas

quality equipment including hydrogen sulfide analysis and/or water

vapor analysis equipment which Transporter, at its reasonable

discretion, determines is required to be installed at such Receipt

Point to monitor the quality of gas delivered.
