GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

6. As to gas which fails to meet the quality specifications set out in Section 3 of this

Article II, or, if applicable, the quality specifications set out in the Transportation

Agreement or applicable Rate Schedule, Transporter shall have the right to refuse to

accept delivery of such gas and in the event Shipper does not correct the quality

deficiency within a reasonable period of time, Transporter may terminate all receipts

under the Transportation Agreement involving the deficient gas.

 

7. Notwithstanding the exercise by Transporter of the options in Section 6 above, Shipper

shall use its best efforts to correct any quality deficiency in the gas tendered for

transportation. Further, notwithstanding Transporter's election under Section 6 above,

Shipper shall reimburse Transporter for all expenses incurred in repairing injuries to

Seller's facilities resulting from deliveries of gas which do not conform to the quality

specifications set forth in Section 3 of this Article II.

 

8. Transporter shall have the right to collect from all Shippers delivering gas to

Transporter at a common Receipt Point their pro rata share of the cost of any additional

gas analysis and quality control equipment which Transporter, at its reasonable

discretion, determines is required to be installed at such Receipt Point to monitor the

quality of gas delivered. The collection shall be by means of an Incidental Charge.

 

9. Separation, Dehydration and Processing: Transporter at its reasonable discretion may

require that some or all of the gas to be transported be processed to remove liquid and

liquefiable hydrocarbons prior to delivery to Transporter or may require evidence that

satisfactory arrangements have been made for the removal of liquid and liquefiable

hydrocarbons at a separation and dehydration and/or processing plant on Transporter's

system. In the event separation and dehydration and/or processing is to occur after

delivery of transportation gas to Transporter, Transporter and Shipper shall determine a

mutually agreeable charge for the transportation of liquid and liquefiable hydrocarbons.

cubic foot of gas at a temperature of sixty degrees (60ø) Fahrenheit, and at a
