5.13 Contracting For Service


(a) Upon approval of a valid request, MRT shall offer the

requesting Customer Service Agreement(s) in the form of agreement

set forth in this tariff.


(b) Unless waived by MRT, a request for service shall be

invalid if Customer fails to execute the tendered Service

Agreement(s) hereunder within thirty (30) days after such has been

tendered by MRT for execution.


(c) Once a Service Agreement for interruptible service is

executed (except for service rendered under Rate Schedule ISS),

Customer shall nominate and tender gas within thirty (30) days of

the later of (i) the date on which Customer is notified that any

necessary facilities are ready for service, (ii) the date on which

Customer executes the interruptible Service Agreement, or (iii) the

date of first deliveries if specified in the Service Agreement. If

Customer fails to meet this condition, Customer's contract shall be

terminated, and Customer's request shall be void; provided,

however, that Customer's failure to tender gas shall be excused by

an event of force majeure as defined in Section 12 of these General

Terms and Conditions or lack of capacity on MRT's pipeline system,

except that failure of gas supply due to factors other than

physical impairment of facilities shall not constitute an

acceptable excuse.
