GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

34. POLICY WITH RESPECT TO THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW FACILITIES

 

34.1 A Customer may request that Equitrans construct, install, improve,

operate, or maintain a lateral pipeline or other facilities to

permit deliveries to Customer or on the Customers? behalf from

Equitrans? existing pipeline facilities. Equitrans will evaluate

all requests for new facilities based on operational feasibility,

regulatory requirements, potential costs and revenues, and the

impact on Equitrans? ability to meet its existing service

obligations. Equitrans shall have no obligation to construct any

new facilities to provide service under this Tariff.

 

34.2 In the event that Equitrans agrees to construct any new facilities

for a Customer, the Customer shall reimburse Equitrans for all

costs and expenses related to such facilities, including, without

limitation, construction, operation, and maintenance costs, any

costs required for permitting or regulatory approval of the

facilities, and return and taxes on any facilities to be owned by

Equitrans at the latest rates approved by the FERC. Such costs

shall be due and payable within ten (10) days of receipt by

Customer of Equitrans invoices for the same; provided, however,

that Equitrans and Customer may agree to a reasonable payment

schedule for the reimbursement of facility costs including carrying

charges.

 

 

34.3 Equitrans may, at its discretion, waive all or part of the

Customers? required reimbursement for the costs of new facilities

based on the determination that the facilities will generate

sufficient transportation throughput or other revenues to make the

facilities economical to Equitrans. Waivers of reimbursement will

be granted in a nondiscriminatory manner based on an evaluation

of the potential costs and revenues related to the facilities

and other relevant economic factors.
