GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

(iii) If Southern Trails does not have sufficient

information to determine whether a Shipper is creditworthy, it may request

additional information in writing from the Shipper consistent with this § 9

of these General Terms and Conditions, and Shipper must provide such

information within five (5) Business Days. If Shipper fails to provide the

requested information or if Southern Trails determines that the Shipper is

not creditworthy based on such information, § 9.2(a)(i) of these General

Terms and Conditions shall apply for suspension of service and § 9.2(d) shall

apply for termination of service.

 

(b) Any suspension of service hereunder may continue until

Southern Trails is reasonably satisfied that Shipper is creditworthy under

this § 9 of these General Terms and Conditions, until Shipper has provided

adequate assurance of future performance under this § 9, or until Southern

Trails terminates service under § 9.2(d) below.

 

(c) At any time after a Shipper is determined to be non-

creditworthy by Southern Trails, Shipper may initiate a creditworthiness re-

evaluation by Southern Trails. Such re-evaluation shall be performed

consistent with this § 9 of these General Terms and Conditions. As part of

Shipper's re-evaluation request, Shipper must either update or confirm in

writing the prior information provided to Southern Trails related to

Shipper's creditworthiness. Such update should include any events that

Shipper believes could lead to a material change in Shipper's

creditworthiness. After Southern Trails' receipt of Shipper's request for re-

evaluation, including all required information specified above, within five

(5) Business Days, Southern Trails shall provide a written response to

Shipper's request. Such written response should include either a

determination of creditworthiness status, clearly stating the reasons for

Southern Trails' decision, or an explanation supporting a future date by

which a re-evaluation determination will be made. In no event should such re-

evaluation determination exceed twenty (20) Business Days from the date of

the receipt of Shipper's request unless specified in this Tariff or if the

parties mutually agree to some later date. If Southern Trails determines that

Shipper is now creditworthy, any security required under § 9 of these General

Terms and Conditions shall be terminated and any prepayment amounts

(including any applicable interest) shall be released to Shipper from escrow

within five (5) Business Days after such determination.

 

(d) In addition to or in lieu of suspension, Southern Trails may

terminate service if the Shipper fails to provide adequate assurance of

future performance consistent with this § 9 of these General Terms and

Conditions. Any such termination requires thirty (30) Days' prior notice to

Shipper and to the Commission. Such notice may be given simultaneously with

the notice provided for under § 9.1(b), above. To avoid termination, the

Shipper must satisfy the requirements of § 9.1(b) of these General Terms and

Conditions within this notice period.
