28.3 Prerequisites to Execution: It is Transporter's intent to

negotiate and execute Operational Balancing Agreements on a

non-discriminatory basis with all Delivery Point Operators.

However, Transporter shall have no obligation to negotiate and

execute Operational Balancing Agreements with any Operator that:


(a) is not credit-worthy as determined pursuant to Article

25 of these General Terms and Conditions;


(b) does not maintain a dispatching operation which is

staffed on a continuous, around-the-clock basis;


(c) would cause an increase in the level of regulation

which Transporter is subject to prior to the execution of the

applicable Operational Balancing Agreement; or


(d) does not commit to timely determination of imbalances

based on reasonable available measurement technology.


28.4 Right to Protect System Integrity: Nothing in this

Article nor any executed Operational Balancing Agreement shall

limit Transporter's rights to take action as may be required to

adjust receipts and deliveries under any transportation

agreement to reflect actual experience or to alleviate

conditions which threaten the integrity of Transporter's pipeline

system, including maintenance of service to higher priority

Shippers or services.
