GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
17. POLICY ON FEES AND CONSTRUCTION OF NEW FACILITIES (continued)
17.2 Pipeline may waive from time to time, at its discretion,
all or a portion of the monetary reimbursement requirement
set forth in Section 17.1 if it determines that
construction of the facilities would be economic, based on
Customer assurance of transportation throughput through the
proposed facilities and other matters, as described below.
All requests for waiver shall be handled by Pipeline in a
manner which is not unduly discriminatory.
For purposes of determining whether a project is economic,
Pipeline will evaluate projects on the basis of various
economic criteria, which may include, without limitation,
the estimated transportation throughput, cost of the
facilities, operating, maintenance, administrative and
general expenses attributable to the facilities, the system
net revenues Pipeline estimates will be generated
subsequent to such construction, and the availability of
capital funds on terms and conditions acceptable to
Pipeline. In estimating the system net revenues to be
generated, Pipeline will evaluate the existence of capacity
limitations of the existing facilities, the marketability
of the capacity, the location of the markets, the nature of
the transportation service, and other factors which impact
the utilization of Pipeline's system.
