GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)
21. RECEIPT AND DELIVERY FACILITIES
21.1 General. This section applies only to those receipt or delivery
facilities contemplated by Section 1(b) of Rate Schedules TF-1, TF-2,
TFL-1 and TIL-1 and Section 1(a) of Rate Schedule TI-1 needed to
accommodate customer requests. This section does not apply to receipt
or delivery facilities constructed by Transporter to accommodate new
transportation commitments solicited by Transporter through an open
season. This section is not intended to limit who may own, operate,
install or pay for facilities upstream of a receipt point or downstream
of a delivery point. It is the Shipper's responsibility to assure that
all facilities installed and owned by Shipper or any other third party
upstream of a receipt point or downstream of a delivery point comply
with all applicable governmental regulations and design requirements for
their intended use (i.e., pressure, control, etc.).
21.2 Construction, Operation, and Ownership.
(a) Transporter will construct, own, operate and maintain all
receipt and delivery facilities unless otherwise agreed to in
writing by Transporter and Shipper. Regardless, Transporter will
install, own and operate all taps and related valves or check
valves on its transmission lines. Facilities to be constructed or
modified may not compromise the operational integrity of
Transporter's transmission system, and construction is subject to
acquiring necessary regulatory approvals.
(b) If in its sole discretion Transporter determines that joint
ownership of the facilities will not be detrimental to
Transporter's system, Transporter will offer Shipper the option to
acquire an ownership interest in the facilities in proportion to
the amount of construction costs for which Shipper is responsible.
Transporter will not transfer any ownership interest to Shipper
prior to payment in full of the applicable cost of service
described in Section 21.3(b).
(c) For any receipt or delivery facilities to be constructed by
Shipper, Shipper will coordinate construction of such facilities
with Transporter so that Transporter may reasonably have
inspectors at the site during construction. All such facilities
must include any rights-of-way necessary to access facilities for
inspection and maintenance. Any such facilities constructed by
Shipper must be in accordance with Transporter's specifications.
Transporter must approve related design drawings and bills of
