8.4 Odorization


Southern Star may receive odorized gas by mutual agreement but

shall not be obligated to odorize gas or to receive odorized gas

in circumstances where the receipt of such gas may adversely

affect the end use of such gas.


8.5 Credit Worthiness


Southern Star shall not be required to perform or to continue

service under this FERC Gas Tariff on behalf of any Shipper who is

or has become insolvent or who, at Southern Star's request, fails

within a reasonable period to demonstrate creditworthiness;

provided, however, such Shipper may receive service for existing

capacity under this FERC Gas Tariff if Shipper maintains a

prepayment for three months of such service. Southern Star will

evaluate creditworthiness on a non-discriminatory basis. Any

Party desiring reassigned capacity under Section 11, must also

satisfy these creditworthiness requirements.


Non-creditworthy shippers desiring to establish credit sufficient

to acquire newly developed capacity must provide a letter of

credit, parent guaranty or prepayment equivalent to the cost of

the expansion capital required to build the new capacity.


Any Party may submit evidence of creditworthiness prior to

requesting a service agreement or bidding for capacity and, to the

extent of credit approval, be placed on an Approved Bidder List

for creditworthiness purposes for new and reassigned capacity.


Southern Star will periodically review and, if necessary, revise

the Approved Bidder List and the extent of any party's

creditworthiness. A party on the Approved Bidder List will remain

on that list (1) until such party notifies Southern Star to remove

its name from such list, (2) until such party no longer meets

Southern Star's creditworthiness requirements, or (3) until such

party fails to pay part or all of the amount of any bill for

service under this FERC Gas Tariff.
