ARTICLE VII - TRANSFER AND ASSIGNMENT OF CONTRACT

 

Any entity which shall succeed by purchase, merger or consolidation to

the properties, substantially as an entirety, of either Transporter or

Shipper, as the case may be, shall be entitled to the rights and shall be

subject to the obligations of its predecessor in title under this Contract.

Any party may, without relieving itself of its obligations under this

Contract, assign any of its rights hereunder to an entity with which it is

affiliated, but otherwise no assignment of this Contract or of any of the

rights or obligations hereunder shall be made unless there first shall have

been obtained the written consent thereto of Shipper in the event of an

assignment by Transporter or Transporter in the event of an assignment by

Shipper, which consents shall not be unreasonably withheld. It is agreed,

however, that the restrictions on assignment contained in this Article VII

shall not in any way prevent either party to this Contract from pledging or

mortgaging its rights hereunder as security for its indebtedness.

 

ARTICLE VIII - NONRECOURSE OBLIGATION OF PARTNERSHIP AND OPERATOR

 

Shipper acknowledges and agrees that: (a) Transporter is a Maine

general partnership; (b) Shipper shall have no recourse against any partner in

Transporter with respect to the obligations of Transporter under this

Contract and that its sole recourse shall be against the partnership assets,

irrespective of any failure to comply with applicable law or any provision of

this Contract; (c) no claim shall be made against any partner under or in

connection with this Contract; (d) Shipper shall have no right of subrogation

to any claim of Transporter for any capital contributions from any partner to

Transporter; (e) no claims shall be made against the Operator, its officers,

employees, and agents, under or in connection with this Contract and the

performance of Operator's duties as Operator (provided that this shall not bar

claims resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Operator,

its officers, employees or agents) and Shipper shall provide Operator with a

waiver of subrogation of Shipper's insurance company for all such claims; and

(f) this representation is made expressly for the benefit of the partners in

Transporter and Operator.

 

ARTICLE IX - LAW OF CONTRACT

 

Notwithstanding conflict-of-law rules, the interpretation and

performance of this Contract shall be in accordance with and controlled by the

laws of the State of Maine.
