integrity of MRT's system, or to provide services as set forth in this tariff.

MRT may buy and sell gas to the extent necessary to meet its service

obligations, to maintain system pressure, to manage system storage, to

replenish any storage retained by MRT for system operations, to provide

adequate storage inventory to support storage services except to the extent

the Customer is responsible for such inventory, to maintain line pack and

provide additional line pack for new facilities, to perform the cashout

procedures under Section 10 of these General Terms and Conditions, and to
