TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

5. SERVICE CONDITIONS

 

5.1 Transporter and Shipper acknowledge that the Executed TSA does not

prohibit either party from selling or transferring its own

facilities; therefore, neither Transporter nor Shipper shall have

any obligation to provide services under the Executed TSA that

requires the use of any facilities sold or transferred; provided,

however, Transporter first shall seek abandonment authorization for

any jurisdictional facilities or jurisdictional services and

Shipper shall have the right to protest such abandonment as

inconsistent with the present or future public convenience and

necessity.

 

5.2 Unless otherwise provided in the Executed TSA, in the event

Transporter and Shipper agree in writing that additional facilities

are necessary in order to implement the service provided under the

Executed TSA, Shipper agrees to reimburse Transporter for all

expenditures associated with the construction and installation of

such facilities which shall be owned, operated and maintained by

Transporter.

 

5.3 Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, Transporter shall only be

responsible for the maintenance and operation of its own properties

and facilities and shall not be responsible for the maintenance or

operation of any other properties or facilities connected in any

way with the transportation of Natural Gas.

 

5.4 Transporter shall have the right to interrupt the transportation of

Natural Gas when necessary to test, alter, modify, enlarge or

repair any facility or property comprising a part of, or

appurtenant to, the El Paso System, or otherwise related to the

operation thereof. Transporter shall endeavor to cause a minimum

of inconvenience to Shipper and, except in cases of emergency,

shall give Shipper advance notice of its intention to so interrupt

the transportation of gas and of the expected magnitude of such

interruptions.

 

5.5 Transporter shall construct, replace, or recondition laterals (at

its own expense) to comply with contractual commitments, or to

conform to Department of Transportation Regulations or other safety

related requirements. Transporter shall also construct laterals, as

requested by a Shipper, when that Shipper has agreed to reimburse

Transporter for the construction and related costs. For purposes of

this Section 5.5, "laterals" mean any pipeline extension (other than

mainline extension) built from an existing pipeline facility to

deliver gas to one or more customers, including new Delivery Points

and enlargements or replacements of existing laterals.
