29.4 Maintenance of Credit.


Transporter may determine that a Shipper is no longer creditworthy based

on the provisions of Section 29.1 or if, in the reasonable opinion of

Transporter, a Shipper (or its guarantor) suffers a material adverse

change in its financial condition such that Shipper's (or its

guarantor's) ability to perform its obligations to Transporter is

materially impaired. The determination of material adverse change shall

be based upon objective, publicly available information or a clearly

status, should a material adverse change in Shipper's financial

at least thirty (30) days to provide the additional security required

under Section 29.2 or 29.3, as applicable, to continue to receive

will suspend a Shipper's reservation charges while that Shipper's

service is suspended. Notices to suspend and/or terminate service may be

provided on or after the date Transporter requests security.
