FORM OF RELEASED TRANSPORTATION AGREEMENT

 

 

ARTICLE V - SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS

 

This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto

and their respective successors and assigns. No assignment or transfer by either party of

any of its rights hereunder, except for transfers pursuant to the release program set forth

in Company's Tariff, shall be made without the prior written consent of the other party.

Such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. No such consent of Company or Replacement

Shipper shall be required when an assignment by Replacement Shipper or Company is the

result of, and part of, a corporate acquisition, merger or reorganization. Nothing

contained herein shall prevent either party from pledging, mortgaging or assigning its

rights hereunder as security for its indebtedness and either party may assign to the

pledgee or mortgagee (or to a trustee for the holder of such indebtedness) any money due or

to become due under this Agreement. As between the parties hereto, such assignment shall

become effective on the first day of the month following written notice that such

assignment has been effectuated. Upon request of either party, the other party shall

acknowledge in writing any permitted assignment described herein and the right of any

permitted assignee (and any assignee upon enforcement of any assignment made as security

for indebtedness) to enforce this Agreement against such other party, and shall also

deliver such certificates, copies of corporate documents and opinions of counsel as may be

reasonably requested by such permitted assignee relating to such party, this Agreement and

any other matters relevant thereto. No permitted assignment shall relieve the assigning

party from any of its obligations under this Agreement. Replacement Shipper hereby

confirms that the rights of Company under this Agreement that may be assigned include any

right given or reserved to Company in the Agreement to consent to any assignment or

transfer by Replacement Shipper of its rights and obligations thereunder.

 

ARTICLE VI - GOVERNMENTAL BODIES

 

Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, this Agreement shall be subject to all

laws, statutes, ordinances, regulations, rules and court decisions of governmental entities

now or hereafter having jurisdiction.

 

ARTICLE VII - REPLACEMENT SHIPPER'S INDEMNIFICATION

 

Replacement Shipper recognizes that its rights to transportation service hereunder are

solely those rights released by Releasing Shippers. The Replacement Shipper agrees that it

will indemnify Company against any claim or suit of any kind by any Releasing Shipper, its

successor or assigns arising from any action taken by Company in reliance upon the

nominations, scheduling instructions or other communications from Replacement Shipper or its
