ARTICLE VI

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN REPLACEMENT CUSTOMER

AND RELEASING CUSTOMER

 

The parties recognize that, pursuant to Commission orders, Releasing

Customer may require that the Replacement Customer agree that a breach of

this Agreement, including a failure to pay, or to pay timely, by

Replacement Customer under this Agreement, constitutes a breach of

contract as between Replacement Customer and Releasing Customer. The

existence of such an agreement will be indicated on the appropriate

Addendum to this Capacity Release Umbrella Agreement. If Replacement

Customer fails to pay Pipeline, fails to timely pay Pipeline, or

otherwise breaches this Agreement with Pipeline: (a) both Replacement

Customer and Releasing Customer (except to the extent otherwise provided

in Section 9.7(a) of the GT&C and except with respect to penalties

attributable to Replacement Customer's conduct) shall be liable to

Pipeline for such failure to pay or breach (it being understood that

nothing in this Article VI relieves Releasing Customer from

responsibility to pay Pipeline in accordance with its service agreements

with Pipeline) and (b) if, as a result of such breach by Replacement

Customer, Releasing Customer is accordingly required to pay Pipeline or

otherwise perform, Releasing Customer may have a cause of action for

breach against Replacement Customer.
