instructions or other communications from Replacement Shipper or its agents.

any action taken by Transporter in reliance upon the nominations, scheduling

instructions or other communications of the Releasing Shipper or its agents.

Replacement Shipper further recognizes and agrees that Transporter shall have

no obligation to honor any nomination or scheduling request from Replacement

Shipper or its agents that in Transporter's sole opinion conflicts with

communications or instructions received by Transporter from the Releasing

Shipper (or its agents) which is the source of the released storage rights

sought to be utilized by Replacement Shipper hereunder.
