(a) Transporter, Shipper and Shipper's Agent to whom Shipper is delegating

its responsibilities must enter into an Agency Authorization Agreement

in one of the forms provided in this tariff: (i) Agency Authorization

Agreement; or (ii) Agency Authorization Agreement for Electronic Data

Interchange. Such Agency Authorization Agreement must be submitted to

Transporter, via PASSKEY, at least two (2) days prior to the requested

effective date. Any changes to the Agreement must be submitted (i) via

PASSKEY to Transporter and (ii) in writing to operators at the receipt

and delivery points through which the delegated transportation or

storage service is received two (2) days prior to the effective date of

the requested change. Shipper's Agent shall have all rights and

obligations under the Delegated Agreements as set forth in the Agency

Authorization Agreement. Shipper's delegation to its Agent(s) pursuant

to this Section 15 shall not confer to either Shipper or Shipper's

Agent(s) rights outside of or in contravention of the Terms and

Conditions of the Delegated Agreements.


(b) Transporter may rely on communications and actions of Shipper's Agent

that are within the scope of the applicable Agency Authorization

Agreement. Such communications with, and actions by, the Shipper's Agent

shall be deemed communications with or actions by Shipper. Shipper shall

indemnify and hold Transporter harmless from suits, actions, costs,

losses and expenses (including, without limitation, attorney's fees)

arising from claims associated with Transporter's reliance on such

communications and actions of Shipper's Agent. If Shipper's Agent fails

to meet such obligations under the Delegated Agreements, then, without

Transporter being obligated to proceed against Shipper's Agent, Shipper

shall be liable for all obligations under the Delegated Agreements.


(c) A third party may administer and aggregate rights under multiple

Delegated Agreements as the designated agent for one or more Shippers;

provided however, that such agent (1) shall separately administer and

account for each such Delegated Agreement, including without limitation

submitting nominations and calculating any imbalances, (2) shall utilize

such Delegated Agreements for the transportation, storage, supply

aggregation, balancing or title transfer tracking of gas for only those

Shippers that have delegated the rights and obligations under their

Delegated Agreements, and (3) shall utilize a Transportation Contract

authorized under Rate Schedule FT-GS for the transportation of gas

solely for the delegating FT-GS Shipper.
