Pipeline may accept natural gas which differs from the quality

specifications set forth above until such time as Pipeline, in its

reasonable discretion and judgment, determines that natural gas

received for gathering or transportation must conform to the

quality specifications set forth above to maintain desired

standards in and/or prudent operation of Pipeline's system. Upon

such a determination, Pipeline will notify Customer that all

prospective deliveries must comply with the quality specifications

set forth above or the provisions of paragraph 3.4 below shall be

applicable to all natural gas tendered for transportation which

does not so comply.

3.4 If, at any time, gas tendered by Customer for gathering or

transportation or by Pipeline after gathering or transportation

shall fail to substantially conform to any of the applicable

quality specifications and Pipeline notifies the delivering party

of such deficiency and the delivering party fails to remedy any

such deficiency within a reasonable period of time, Pipeline may,

at its option, refuse to accept delivery pending correction of the

deficiency by the delivering party. In the alternative Pipeline

may continue to accept delivery and make such changes necessary to

cause the gas to conform to such specifications, in which event

the delivering party shall reimburse Pipeline for all reasonable

expenses incurred by Pipeline in effecting such changes. Failure

by either Pipeline or Customer to tender deliveries that conform

to any of the applicable quality specifications shall not be

construed to eliminate, or limit in any manner, the rights and

obligations existing under any other provisions of the executed

Service Agreement and shall not limit Pipeline's right to refuse

to accept deliveries from any Customer that fails to conform to

applicable quality specifications at any time.
