Operator (Requestor) shall submit, in addition to a completed Request for Service

Form, the data required by Paragraph (c) below. Operator may, however, waive the

Operator may require an existing Buyer to furnish any information necessary to make a

creditworthiness determination with respect to that Buyer/Requestor's new request for

service. A request for service shall not be valid until Operator has received from
