8. TITLE TO GAS (Continued)


8.4 Waiver of Shipper Must Have Title Requirement. If Transporter

acquires transportation and/or storage capacity on an off-system

pipeline, Transporter will use such capacity for operational purposes

and/or will render service to Shippers using such capacity pursuant to

the terms and conditions of its tariff and at Commission-approved rates.

For transactions subject to this Section 8.4, the "Shipper must have

title" requirement is waived.




Neither Transporter nor Shipper shall be liable in damages to the

other for any act, omission or circumstance occasioned by or in

consequence of any blockades, insurrections, riots, epidemics, flood,

washouts, landslides, mudslides, earthquakes, extreme cold or freezing

weather, lightning, rulers and peoples, civil disturbances, explosions,

breakage or imminent breakage or freezing of or accident to machinery or

line of pipe, the order of any court or governmental authority having

jurisdiction, and any other cause, whether of the kind herein enumerated

or otherwise, not reasonably within the control of the party claiming

suspension and which by the exercise of due diligence such party is

unable to prevent or overcome. Failure to prevent or settle any strike

or strikes shall not be considered a matter within the control of the

party claiming suspension.


Such causes or contingencies affecting the performance under the

executed Service Agreement by either Transporter or Shipper, however,

shall not relieve it of liability in the event of its concurring

negligence or in the event of its failure to use due diligence to remedy

the situation and to remove the cause in an adequate manner and with all

reasonable dispatch, nor shall such causes or contingencies affecting

such performance relieve either party from its obligations to make

payments of amounts then due in respect of gas theretofore delivered and

as provided for in Section 10 of Rate Schedule TF-1.
