25. CONSTRUCTION OF NEW RECEIPT OR DELIVERY FACILITIES

 

25.1 All requests for new interconnects must be made in writing. A

party requesting the new interconnect shall reimburse Steckman

Ridge or cause Steckman Ridge to be reimbursed for any and all

reasonable costs and expenses incurred in constructing,

establishing or modifying the facilities required to establish a

new interconnection on existing facilities for receipt or delivery

of Gas hereunder. In the alternative, the party requesting the

interconnect may perform the construction at its own cost in

compliance with Steckman Ridge's technical requirements. In

addition to the above requirements, Steckman Ridge will agree to

construct a new interconnect or modify an existing interconnect on

the following terms:

 

(a) The construction of the new interconnect will not create any

significant operational problems for Steckman Ridge;

 

(b) The proposed interconnect will not adversely affect the

rendition of existing service or adversely alter the

operation of its facilities;

 

(c) The new interconnect must be at a mutually agreeable

location; provided, however, that Steckman Ridge may not

deny a Customer's request for specific placement of the

interconnect without adequate operational, environmental, or

legal justification;

 

(d) In order to properly and prudently design and size the new

interconnect, Steckman Ridge must be provided with

reasonable and reliable data concerning the interconnecting

facilities, including delivery pressures, and anticipated

hourly, daily, monthly and annual volume levels of the

service that supports the new interconnect and such other

data as is reasonably required to construct the interconnect

facility;

 

(e) The new interconnect must not result in any minimum pressure

receipt or delivery requirement by Steckman Ridge unless

Steckman Ridge agrees otherwise, such agreement shall not be

unreasonably withheld, and Steckman Ridge shall not be

responsible for any downstream parties' facilities, the

operation or maintenance of such facilities, or the delivery

of any unauthorized volumes to the facilities;

 

(f) The service supporting the interconnect as well as the

construction of the new facilities must conform with the

provisions of Steckman Ridge's currently effective FERC Gas

Tariff as well as applicable regulatory requirements;

 

(g) The proposed interconnect must not cause Steckman Ridge to

be in violation of any applicable environmental or safety

laws or regulations with respect to the facilities required

to establish an interconnect with Steckman Ridge's existing

facilities; and

 

(h) The proposed interconnect must not cause Steckman Ridge to

be in violation of its right-of-way agreements or any other

contractual obligations with respect to the interconnect

facilities.
