temperature in Transporter's pipeline, from objectionable

odors, sand, dust, gums, oils, hydrocarbons liquefiable at

temperatures in excess of 14 degrees Fahrenheit at the

prevailing operating pressure, impurities, other

objectionable substances which may become separated from the

Gas, and other solids or liquids which will render it
