GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (continued)

 

when determined as provided in Section 2 of Article III hereof, falls

below nine hundred and sixty-seven (or above eleven hundred in the case of

citygate deliveries) British thermal units per cubic foot, Shipper shall

have the option to refuse to accept said gas so long as said total heating

value remains below nine hundred and sixty-seven (or above eleven hundred

in the case of citygate deliveries) British thermal units per cubic foot.

 

(b) Freedom from objectionable matter: The natural gas delivered by

Transporter under this Tariff shall be commercially free from objectionable

odors, dust, or other solid or liquid matters (including hydrocarbon

liquids) which might interfere with its merchantability or cause injury to

or interference with proper operation of the lines, regulators, meters or

other appliances through which it flows at the point of delivery; and shall

not contain more than twenty grains of total sulphur nor more than one

grain of hydrogen sulphide per one hundred cubic feet. Transporter's

obligation hereunder shall in no way require Transporter to deliver natural

gas to Shipper at anything other than at the prevailing pressure and

temperature in Transporter's pipeline.

 

2. Failure to conform to specifications against objectionable matter:

 

If the gas offered for delivery by Transporter shall fail at any time to conform

to any of the specifications set forth in Section 1 of this Article, then Shipper

shall notify Transporter of such deficiency and thereupon may at Shipper's option

refuse to accept delivery pending correction by Transporter. Upon Transporter's

failure promptly to remedy any deficiency in quality as specified in Section 1 of

this Article, Shipper may accept delivery of such gas and may make changes

necessary to bring such gas into conformity with such specifications, and

Transporter may reimburse Shipper for any reasonable expense incurred by it in

effecting such changes.

 

If a Shipper requests delivery ("Requesting Shipper") of gas that does not meet

one or more of the gas quality specifications contained in Article II, Section 1

above ("Non-Conforming Gas"), nothing in this Article II shall prevent the

Requesting Shipper from waiving any of its rights under this Section 2 or agreeing

to indemnify, defend, and hold Transporter harmless from any damages to the

Requesting Shipper's facilities relating to Transporter's delivery of such Non-

Conforming Gas, provided that the delivery to the Requesting Shipper occurs at a

point on Transporter's system located in the supply area, as defined in Article I,

Section 21 of these General Terms and Conditions. The Requesting Shipper may

specify whether it is waiving one or more of the gas quality specifications

contained in Article II, Section 1 above. Transporter may reject any request to

deliver Non-Conforming Gas if Transporter determines, in its sole judgment, that

it will adversely impact Transporter's system or other Shippers. Except under the

specific circumstances of a Requesting Shipper, nothing in this Article II shall

relieve Transporter of its obligation to deliver gas that conforms to the

specifications of Article II, Section 1.

 

3. The provisions set forth in this Article II Section 3 shall apply to all gas

delivered to Transporter. Gas delivered to Transporter hereunder:

 

(a) shall have a total heating value of not less than nine hundred sixty-seven

(967) Btu's per cubic foot, and not more than eleven hundred (1100) Btu's

per cubic foot;

 

(b) shall be commercially free from objectionable odors, dust, water, any

other solid or liquid matter that might interfere with its merchantability

or cause injury to, or interference with, proper operation of the

equipment through which it flows and any substance that might become

separated from the gas in Transporter's facilities. Shipper shall

furnish, install, maintain and operate drips, separators, heaters, and

other mechanical devices as may be necessary to effect compliance with

such requirements (after having secured the prior approval of Transporter

as to the design and construction of such facilities, which approval shall

not be unreasonably withheld);
