"force majeure," which means any act of God, strikes, lockouts,

or other industrial disturbances, acts of public enemies,

sabotage (whether or not performed by persons affiliated with

parties hereto), wars, blockades, insurrections, riots,

epidemics, landslides, lighting, electrical power failures,

or equipment, computer hardware or software failure, legislative,

administrative or judicial action which has been resisted in good

faith by all reasonable legal means, any acts, omissions or

causes whether of the kind herein enumerated or otherwise not

reasonably within the control of the party invoking this

paragraph and which by the exercise of due diligence such party

could not have prevented the necessity for making repairs to,

replacing, or reconditioning machinery, hardware, software,

equipment, or pipelines, not resulting from the fault or

negligence of the party involving this paragraph, such failure

shall be deemed not to be a breach of the obligation of such

party, but such party shall use reasonable diligence to put
