GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
23. CONSTRUCTION OF FACILITIES
23.1 Transporter will have no obligation to construct any facilities but
if it elects to construct for Shippers under this tariff, it will do
so on a non-discriminatory basis, provided, however, Transporter
shall not be obligated to construct facilities hereunder that will
result in the expansion or diminishment of Transporter's pipeline
system or that will place Transporter at risk for recovering costs of
facilities built to satisfy individual Shippers. Transporter will
own and operate all facilities constructed.
23.2 Shippers that request service that requires construction of
facilities by Transporter shall reimburse Transporter for the costs
of preparing facility cost estimates (including any engineering or
related study costs) and for the costs of such facilities. Shipper
shall pay the new facilities charge by lump sum payment, based upon
Transporter's estimated cost, prior to any construction activity
unless another form of payment is otherwise mutually agreed upon.
Transporter may require Shipper to pay the estimated cost of
preparing the facility cost estimate prior to Transporter's preparing
such estimate. Such payments shall be applied to the actual cost of
such new facilities; provided, however, any excess shall be returned
to the Shipper and any amounts still owing shall be paid by the
Shipper to Transporter within thirty days after final determination.
24. INCORPORATION IN RATE SCHEDULES AND SERVICE AGREEMENTS

provision of a gas service agreement conflicts with any provision of the
corresponding rate schedule, the provisions in the Rate Schedule shall govern.
To the extent that any provision in either a gas service agreement or a Rate
Schedule conflicts with any of Transporter's General Terms and Conditions,
Transporter's General Terms and Conditions shall govern unless waived.
