9. BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITIES
Buyer recognizes that, as between it and Seller, Buyer has sole control over its physical
takes of gas from Seller's system and therefore has a duty to refrain from taking delivery of
volumes in excess of Buyer's TCQ, as adjusted pursuant to Section 11 of the General Terms and
Conditions. Buyer further recognizes that Buyer may cause hardship and economic damage to
other Buyers in the event Buyer takes delivery of volumes in excess of Buyer's TCQ, as
adjusted, for which Buyer may be held accountable either through a direct cause of action by
such other Buyers or as an impleaded or third party defendant in a suit by such other Buyers.
In no event shall the payment of a penalty for an overrun quantity pursuant to Section 18 of
the General Terms and Conditions be considered as giving Buyer the right to take such overrun
quantity nor shall such payment be considered as a substitute for all other rights and
remedies (including but not limited to consequential damages) available to any other Buyer
against Buyer for failure to respect its obligation to stay within its TCQ, as adjusted.
10. SELLER'S RESPONSIBILITIES
Seller recognizes that it has a duty to use reasonable care and prudent operating procedures
to allow Buyer to schedule for delivery within its TCQ, as adjusted pursuant to Section 11 of
the General Terms and Conditions, the gas quantities available to Buyer up to the amount
verified and confirmed by Seller based on the best operating information available to Seller.
Seller also recognizes that unless forces beyond Seller's control (including, but not limited
to, force majeure, or the failure of Buyer or Buyer's gas supplier to deliver scheduled gas
quantities into Seller's system) cause interference with Seller's ability to redeliver,
Seller has a duty to tender to Buyer for redelivery the gas quantities which Seller has
verified and confirmed as available to Buyer. Seller further recognizes that a breach of its
duties herein may cause hardship and economic damage to Buyer, for which Buyer reserves all
rights and remedies (including but not limited to consequential damages), and for which
Seller may be held accountable. In addition to the foregoing, Seller shall be responsible to
Buyer for penalties in the same manner as an overrun by a Buyer, for service deficiencies
(i.e., the failure to allow Buyer to schedule gas quantities for redelivery or the failure to
tender to Buyer gas quantities for redelivery) caused by Seller allocating to Seller's sales
service or to any other Buyer in a knowing, willful or grossly negligent manner the gas
quantities which Seller has verified and confirmed as available to Buyer.

12. WARRANTY OF TITLE OF GAS
Buyer warrants for itself, its successors and assigns, that it will at the time of delivery
to Seller for transportation have good and merchantable title to all gas hereunder free and
clear of all liens, encumbrances and claims whatsoever. Buyer shall indemnify Seller and save
it harmless from all suits, actions, debts, accounts, damages, costs, losses and expenses
arising from or out of adverse claims of any or all persons to said gas, including claims for
any royalties, taxes, license fees or charges applicable to such gas or to the delivery
