7.6 Creditworthiness of Shipper or Persons Requesting Service:


If in any month Shipper fails to pay Paiute for properly billed

amounts under any rate schedule, or seeks protection from credi-

tors in bankruptcy or reorganization, or is reported by reliable

sources to have defaulted on an obligation to any creditor,

Paiute shall notify Shipper of the need to prepay two (2) months'

estimated bills, and Paiute may refuse to receive or deliver

natural gas pending corrective action by Shipper.


If any person requesting service under this tariff is in

bankruptcy or reorganization, or has a poor credit history, as

established by a reliable credit reporting agency, or has so few

assets in the state in which Paiute operates as to make enforce-

ment of any judgment against such person doubtful, Paiute may

refuse to accept and may reject a request for service hereunder

until and unless such Shipper prepays an amount equal to two (2)

months' estimated bills.


The following procedures shall apply to the exchange of infor-

mation between Paiute and Shipper when Paiute is evaluating

Shipper's creditworthiness:


(a) If Paiute requests additional information to be used for

credit evaluation after the initiation of service, Paiute,

contemporaneous with the request, should provide its

reason(s) for requesting the additional information to

Shipper and designate to whom the response should be sent.

Paiute and Shipper may mutually agree to waive the require-

ments of this subpart.


(b) Upon receipt of either an initial or follow-up request from

Paiute for information to be used for creditworthiness

evaluation, Shipper's authorized representative(s) should

acknowledge receipt of Paiute's request. Paiute and Shipper

may mutually agree to waive the requirements of this
