Shipper shall deliver gas to Southern Star at the pressure sufficient to allow the gas to

enter Southern Star's facilities at the receipt point(s) at the varying pressures that may

exist in such facilities from time to time; provided, however, that such pressure of the gas

delivered by Shipper shall not exceed the maximum allowable operating pressure(s) of such

facilities. Unless otherwise mutually agreed in the executed firm service agreement,

Southern Star shall deliver gas to Shipper at Southern Star's line pressure existing at the

point of delivery; provided, however, that Southern Star will not be required to deliver gas

at pressures in excess of the MAOP of the line or to install facilities to effectuate such

deliveries. Provided further, prior to agreeing to a minimum delivery pressure in a service

agreement, Southern Star will model its system based on firm service obligations at that

time and historical delivery pressures (or contracted minimum delivery pressures if such

exist) required to meet those obligations in order to maintain reliability and integrity of

service under all existing firm service obligations. Southern Star will post on its website

a list of relevant points and minimum pressures considered in modeling its system; such

posting will be updated at least annually and may be updated more often as necessary.

Southern Star will not agree to a minimum delivery pressure that will render Southern Star

unable to meet its existing firm service obligations and upon request, will provide a

written explanation to the shipper of the operational basis for rejecting any request for a

minimum delivery pressure. Shipper agrees to install, operate and maintain at its own cost

and expense, all pipes, appliances, pressure relief or other valves, fittings, regulators

and other equipment necessary to properly handle and regulate the pressure of the gas after

delivery to it by Southern Star at the point of delivery. Shipper shall receive gas at

pressures great enough to allow Southern Star's measurement equipment to reliably measure

such gas.




If either Southern Star or Shipper is rendered unable wholly or in part by Force Majeure to

carry out its obligations other than to make payments of amounts due hereunder, and such

party gives notice and full particulars of such Force Majeure in writing to the other party

as soon as possible after the occurrence of the cause relied on, then the obligations of the

party giving such notice, so far as they are affected by such Force Majeure, shall be

suspended during the continuance of any inability so caused, but for no longer period, and

such cause shall, so far as possible, be remedied with all reasonable dispatch.


A Shipper who is rendered unable wholly or in part by Force Majeure to deliver volumes of

gas to Southern Star as scheduled will be required, in addition to giving full particulars

of such Force Majeure, to furnish a statement in writing to Southern Star as to where the

equivalent reduction in deliveries to Shipper or for Shipper's account, will take place and

to make such reduction in deliveries.
