(d) Notices and Indemnification


MRT shall have the responsibility to inform only its

Customers and the immediate upstream or downstream facility

operators involved in a transaction of any curtailment or

interruption. Curtailed Customers shall indemnify MRT against and

hold MRT harmless from any and all damages, claims, suits, actions

or proceedings whatsoever threatened or initiated as a result of

any curtailment or interruption invoked by MRT, which shall

include any curtailment or interruptions described in any part of

this section; provided, however, Customers shall not be required

to indemnify MRT for any damages resulting from MRT's negligence

or willful misconduct.


(e) In the event a force majeure condition occurs on MRT's

system (e.g., line explosion, etc.) that is the responsibility of

MRT, when alternative firm transportation arrangements cannot be

agreed upon by MRT and Customer, MRT shall provide a daily credit

of the Monthly Reservation Charges of the Customer equal to the

actual daily quantity curtailed multiplied by the Monthly

Reservation Charge computed at 100% load factor for the duration

of the force majeure event.


8.4 Emergency Reallocation


(a) In the event an emergency situation, including an

environmental emergency, should arise in which supplemental

deliveries of gas are required in order to serve human needs or

avoid substantial damage to property, MRT shall have the right to

reallocate capacity and/or divert gas supplies to forestall the

emergency upon receipt of verified proof that such an emergency

exists, provided the aggregate of MRT's deliveries to any Customer

shall not exceed the Customer's authorized MDQ. Only Customers

subscribing to MRT's FSS and FTS or SCT shall be eligible to

declare such an emergency.
