6. FACILITIES

 

6.1 Unless otherwise provided in the applicable Service

Agreement, any measurement and/or appurtenant facilities required at the

receipt and/or delivery point(s) shall be installed, owned, operated and

maintained by MRT. Customer may be required to reimburse MRT for the

actual costs of any facilities acquired or installed by MRT with

Customer's consent which are necessary to receive, monitor, measure,

transport, store, or deliver gas to or for the account of Customer,

including without limitation, right-of-way costs, loss of revenues if

the installation requires the interruption of any services, overhead

charges incurred as a result of the installation of any such facilities

and any federal income tax associated with any amounts which qualify as

contributions in aid of construction under the Tax Reform Act of 1986 or

any other tax legislation. Customer shall repay MRT, either in dollars

as invoiced by MRT, or at MRT's option, in kind for any gas lost from

MRT's pipeline as a result of the installation, modification, or

expansion of such facilities. The charges for lost gas, if invoiced,

will be equal to the volume of gas lost multiplied by the actual cost of

replacing such gas.

 

6.2 If the measurement and appurtenant facilities existing at

the receipt and/or delivery point(s) are deemed adequate and operable in

MRT's sole determination, then such facilities shall be used; however,

if any modification or expansion of any such existing facility is deemed

necessary, in MRT's sole determination, then such modification or

expansion shall be performed by MRT with Customer's consent and Customer

may be required to reimburse MRT for all costs, including, without

limitation, overhead charges, incurred in such modification or

expansion.

 

6.3 Each party shall at all reasonable times have access for

inspection to the premises of the party operating the facilities at the

receipt and/or delivery point(s) insofar as such premises are connected

with any matter or thing covered hereunder; but the operation,

installation, removal, repair and testing of the measuring equipment and

changing of charts shall be done only by the party operating said

equipment at the receipt point and/or delivery point. Either party may
