10.8 Notification of Acceptance or Rejection. Service will only be

considered after the receipt by Transporter of a complete

request as provided above, including, if required, submission

of a credit application and satisfactory assessment of

creditworthiness as provided in Section 14.5 below.

Transporter shall notify Shipper of acceptance or rejection of

the completed request as soon as reasonably possible.


10.9 Failure to Execute Agreement or Initiate Service. If Shipper

fails to execute and return a Service Agreement tendered by

Transporter within thirty (30) Days of Shipper's receipt of the

Service Agreement, or if, in the case of interruptible

services, Transporter has scheduled Shipper's Gas, yet Shipper

fails to tender Gas for such services by the later of (i) the

date agreed to in the Service Agreement; (ii) fifteen (15) Days

following its receipt of a fully executed Service Agreement

from Transporter; or (iii) the date on which any necessary

facilities are placed into service, then Transporter may

consider Shipper's request for service withdrawn and the

Service Agreement terminated by Shipper, both becoming null and

void and without any force and effect; provided, however, that

Shipper's Service Agreement shall not be terminated and

Shipper's request for service shall not be deemed withdrawn,

if, and so long as, Shipper's failure to tender Gas is due to

the existence of an event of force majeure upstream or

downstream from Transporter and, provided, further, that

nothing contained herein shall prejudice Shipper's right to

tender a new request for service at anytime.

contained in this Tariff, Transporter shall have the

right to interrupt, curtail or discontinue receipts,

deliveries and/or storage of Gas when it determines that

insufficient capacity exists to perform services already

scheduled, due to events as provided in Sections 8 and 20

of these General Terms and Conditions or otherwise when

necessary due to a loss of
