Transporter warrants for itself, its successors and assigns, that the gas it warrants

hereunder shall be free and clear of all liens, encumbrances and claims whatsoever,

that each will have at such time of delivery good right and/or title to deliver the

gas, that each will indemnify the other and save it harmless from all suits, actions,

debts, accounts, dangers, costs, losses, and expenses arising from or out of any

adverse claims of any and all persons to said gas and/or to royalties, taxes, license

fees, or charges thereon which are applicable for such delivery of gas and that each

will indemnify the other and save it harmless from all taxes or assessments which may

be levied and assessed upon such delivery and which are by law payable by and the

obligation of the party making such delivery. If Shipper's title or right to deliver

gas to be transported is questioned or involved in any action, Shipper shall not
