RATE SCHEDULE FCS-DP

 

 

Article 7 - Successors and Assigns (Continued)

 

in this Article 7 shall, however, operate to release predecessor

Shipper from its obligation under its Service Agreement unless Company

shall, in its sole discretion, consent in writing to such release.

Company shall not release any Shipper from its obligations under its

Service Agreement unless: (a) such release is effected pursuant to an

assignment of obligations by such Shipper, and the assumption thereof

by the assignee, and the terms of such assignment and assumption render

the obligations being assigned and assumed no more conditional and no

less absolute than those at the time provided therein; and (b) such

release is not likely to have a substantial adverse effect upon

Company. Shipper shall, at Company's request, execute such instruments

and take such other action as may be desirable to give effect to any

such assignment of Company's rights under such Shipper's Service

Agreement or to give effect to the right of a Person whom the Company

has specified pursuant to Section 6 of the General Terms and Conditions

of Company's FERC Gas Tariff as the Person to whom payment of amounts

invoiced by Company shall be made; provided, however, that: (a) Shipper

shall not be required to execute any such instruments or take any such

other action the effect of which is to modify the respective rights and

obligations of either Shipper or Company under this Service Agreement;

and (b) Shipper shall be under no obligation at any time to determine

the status or amount of any payments which may be due from Company to

any Person whom the Company has specified pursuant to said Section 6 as

the Person to whom payment of amounts invoiced by Company shall be

made.

Transportation or Market

obtaining and assumes the risk of loss of the following: (1) gas

removal permits, (2) export and import licenses, (3) gas supply,

(4) markets and (5) transportation upstream and downstream of the

Company's pipeline system. Notwithstanding the loss of one of the
