GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(continued)

 

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.
