17.1 Effect of Force Majeure


In the event of either Sea Robin or Shipper being rendered

unable by force majeure to itself or a necessary third party to

wholly or in part carry out its obligations under the

provisions of the Service Agreement, it is agreed that the

obligations of the party affected by such force majeure, other
