XVII. CONSTRUCTION OF RECEIPT AND DELIVERY FACILITIES

 

1. Transporter shall have no obligation to construct, modify or rearrange Tap

Facilities or Tap and Connecting Facilities to perform any service for a

requesting party. For the purposes of this Article XVII, "Tap Facilities"

shall include, but not be limited to, receipt and delivery taps, block and

check valves, electronic gas measurement, communication equipment, and flange.

"Connecting Facilities" shall include laterals, interconnecting pipeline,

metering, compression, flow regulators and pressure regulators other than the

Tap Facilities. "Lateral" shall mean any pipeline extension of Transporter

(other than a mainline extension) built by Transporter from Transporter's

existing pipeline facility to deliver gas to one or more customers, including

new delivery points and enlargements or replacements of existing laterals.

"Construction" shall mean the construction, modification or rearrangement by

Transporter or its designee of Tap Facilities or Tap and Connecting Facilities

to perform any service, including any Tap Facilities or Tap and Connecting

Facilities necessary for Transporter to receive gas from, deliver gas to, or

measure any gas received from or delivered to any party requesting

Transporter's construction of such facilities.

 

2. All requests for the Construction of Tap Facilities or Tap and Connecting

Facilities shall be handled by Transporter in a manner which is not unduly

discriminatory. In the event that Transporter determines that it will construct

facilities that will result in the expansion of its pipeline system, Transporter

will offer the proposed expansion capacity to all Shippers on a non-

discriminatory basis.

 

3. In the event that Transporter agrees to the Construction of Tap Facilities or

Tap and Connecting Facilities, any agreement to construct, modify or rearrange

such Tap Facilities or Tap and Connecting Facilities shall be conditioned as

follows:

 

3.1 The Tap Facilities or Tap and Connecting Facilities shall be installed at

a point(s) which, in Transporter's reasonable judgment, is the most

practical, convenient and readily accessible location; provided, however,

Transporter shall not deny requesting party's proposed point(s) without

adequate operational, environmental or legal justification; and

 

3.2 The requesting party shall provide support for any regulatory

authorization or permitting requirements necessary to support the Tap

Facilities or Tap and Connecting Facilities at any duly authorized

federal, state or government agency having jurisdiction including, but

not limited to, all exhibits required by an application for FERC

authorization; and

 

3.3 The terms and conditions of the Construction of the Tap Facilities or Tap

and Connecting Facilities shall be mutually agreed to by Transporter and

the requesting party and set forth in a facilities agreement. Nothing

herein precludes requesting party or requesting party's designee from

constructing the Connecting Facilities; and

 

3.4 The ownership, operation and maintenance of the Tap Facilities or Tap and

Connecting Facilities shall be mutually agreed to by Transporter and the

requesting party and set forth in a facilities agreement. Nothing herein

precludes requesting party or requesting party's designee from owning the

Connecting Facilities.
