6. OPERATING CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

(b) (8) Scheduling Under Individual Rate Schedules. To the extent that individual Rate

Schedules set forth nomination scheduling requirements inconsistent with the

requirements set forth in this Section, the applicable Rate Schedules are

controlling and Buyer shall satisfy the requirements set forth in those Rate

Schedules. To the extent that applicable Rate Schedules set forth scheduling

requirements in addition to, but not inconsistent with, the provisions of this

Section, Buyer shall satisfy the requirements of both the individual Rate

Schedules and this Section.

 

(c) Third Party Arrangements. Buyer shall be responsible for making all necessary

arrangements with third parties (i) at or upstream of the Receipt Points at which

Buyer tenders gas to Operator for transportation services, and (ii) downstream of

Delivery Points at which Operator delivers gas for the account of Buyer. Buyer shall

be responsible for (i) insuring that any such arrangements are consistent with the

terms and conditions of the applicable Rate Schedule under which it seeks to have

Operator provide services, and (ii) requiring such third parties to confirm all of

Buyer's nominations with Operator by telephone, by facsimile transmission or other

means acceptable to Operator and such other third party. Such third-party

arrangements shall be coordinated with Operator.

 

(d) Service Obligation. Operator shall not be required to perform any newly requested

service under any of its Rate Schedules if any of the facilities necessary to render

the requested service do not exist. In addition, Operator shall not be required to

undertake new services under any of its existing Rate Schedules during periods in

which facilities are scheduled for maintenance or repair or for other existing

conditions identified in Section 16 (Interruptions of Service) of this General Terms

and Conditions. Operator shall not be required to construct or reactivate facilities;

provided, however, that Buyer may request construction of facilities under the

provisions of Section 20 (Construction of Facilities) of the General Terms and

Conditions.

 

(e) Creditworthiness of Buyer.

 

(i) Subject to the provisions of subsections (ii) and (iii) below, Operator shall

not be required to perform or to continue to perform service on behalf of any

Buyer that (i) is or has become insolvent, (ii) has applied for bankruptcy

under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code or is subject to similar proceedings

under State or Federal Law, or (iii) fails, in Operator's reasonable judgment,

to demonstrate minimal creditworthiness for all or any part of the service

requested, based upon Operator's consideration of available credit data

concerning Buyer and Buyer's past payment history, financial statements, and

credit reports. Operator shall apply nondiscriminatory evaluation practices to

determine the acceptability of Buyer's overall financial condition.
