TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

5. QUALITY (Continued)

 

5.8 If, at any time, gas tendered by Shipper for transportation

shall fail to substantially conform to any of the applicable

quality specifications set forth in Section 5.1 above and

El Paso 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 El Paso's system), El Paso may, at its option,

refuse to accept delivery pending correction of the deficiency

by Shipper or continue to accept delivery and make such

changes necessary to cause the gas to conform to such

specifications, in which event Shipper shall reimburse El Paso

for all reasonable expenses incurred by El Paso 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

Transportation Service Agreement. In the event natural gas is

delivered into El Paso's system that would cause the natural

gas in a portion of El Paso's pipeline to become

unmerchantable, then El Paso is permitted to act expediently

to make the gas merchantable again by any and all reasonable

methods, including, without limitation, to venting the

pipeline of whatever quantity of natural gas necessary to

achieve a merchantable stream of gas. Shipper shall reimburse

El Paso for all reasonable expenses incurred by El Paso to

obtain merchantable natural gas again, including operational

and gas costs associated with venting the pipeline. In such

cases, El Paso shall promptly notify Shipper of the

non-conforming supply and any steps taken to protect the

merchantability of the gas.

 

5.9 After giving sufficient notice to a Shipper, El Paso shall

have the right to collect from all Shippers delivering gas to

El Paso at a common Receipt Point their volumetric pro rata

share of the cost of any additional hydrogen sulfide analysis

and/or water vapor analysis equipment which El Paso, at its

reasonable discretion, determines is required to be installed

at such Receipt Point to monitor the quality of gas delivered.

 

5.10 Except as otherwise provided below, all natural gas delivered

by El Paso shall conform to the following specifications:
