having proper jurisdiction adjudging the Shipper or any

parent entity thereof bankrupt or insolvent. The

insolvency of a Shipper shall also be presumed by the

filing by the Shipper or its parent entity of a voluntary

or involuntary proceeding, reorganization, receivership,

liquidation, a debt reduction procedure, assignment for the

benefit of creditors, formal or informal creditor

restructuring agreement, or the filing of any case under

the United States Bankruptcy Code, or any other applicable

federal or state law.

of service hereunder, Shipper shall provide notification

thereof to Transporter within two (2) Business Days of any

such initiated or imposed event or action.

obligations under the Agreement) has an investment grade

credit rating for its long term senior unsecured debt from

Moody's Investor Service of Baa3 or better or from Standard
