continue service under this Tariff on behalf of any Shipper who

is or has become insolvent or who, at Transporter's request, at

any time fails within a reasonable period to maintain and

demonstrate creditworthiness, including, without limitation, the

ability to pay all amounts invoiced but not paid because of a

effective quantities for storage services, as applicable, were

provided for service to Shipper during a period of up to six (6)

Service Months. For purposes of this Tariff, the insolvency of a

Shipper shall be evidenced by the filing of such Shipper or any

parent entity or guarantor thereof (for purposes of this section,

a reference to Shipper shall include any applicable parent entity

or guarantor) of a voluntary petition in bankruptcy or the entry

of a decree or order by a court having jurisdiction in the

premises adjudging Shipper a bankrupt or insolvent, or approving

as properly filed a petition seeking reorganization, arrangement,

adjustment or composition of or in respect of Shipper under the

Federal Bankruptcy Act or any other applicable federal or state

law, or appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee,
