GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
(e) Notwithstanding the provisions of § 8.1(b), above, in the
event Questar constructs new facilities to provide service, in whole or in
part, to a shipper, Questar may require from the shipper security in an amount
up the shipper's pro rata share of the cost of such facilities. Security
hereunder may be in any of the forms available under § 8.1(b) of these General
Terms and Conditions, at shipper's choice. Questar is only permitted to
recover the cost of facilities once, either through rates or through this
provision. As Questar recovers the cost of these facilities through its rates,
the security required shall be reduced accordingly. Where facilities are
constructed to serve multiple shippers, an individual shipper's obligation
hereunder shall be for no more than its proportionate share of the cost of the
facilities. This provision is in addition to and shall not supersede or
replace any other rights that Questar may have regarding the construction and
reimbursement of facilities.
(f) Questar shall not take any action under this § 8.1 which
conflicts with any order of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
8.2 Deterioration of Credit.
(a) (i) If at any time Questar reasonably determines, based on
adequate information available to it, that a shipper is no longer creditworthy
under this § 8 of these General Terms and Conditions, or if shipper fails to
maintain assurance of future performance under this § 8 of these General Terms
and Conditions, Questar may notify such shipper in writing (which writing
shall set forth the basis for Questar's decision) that it has five (5)
Business Days to provide Questar with security consistent with this § 8 of
these General Terms and Conditions. Such security shall be adequate to cover
all charges for one Month's advance service.
(ii) In addition, within thirty (30) Days after such
notification, the shipper must fully comply with the means for adequate
assurance of future performance, covering three (3) full Months of advance
service from the end of such 30-Day notice period, as provided under this § 8
of these General Terms and Conditions. If the shipper has not satisfied the
requirements in either of the prior two (2) sentences by the end of the
specified notice period, Questar may immediately suspend service to shipper.
Questar may terminate service once it has complied with the procedures set
forth further in this Section below, including the requisite prior notice.
