under the Transportation Agreement involving the deficient gas.
7. Notwithstanding the exercise by Transporter of the options in Section 6 above, Shipper

discretion, determines is required to be installed at such Receipt Point to monitor the
quality of gas delivered. The collection shall be by means of an Incidental Charge.
9. Separation, Dehydration and Processing: Transporter at its reasonable discretion may
require that some or all of the gas to be transported be processed to remove liquid and
liquefiable hydrocarbons prior to delivery to Transporter or may require evidence that
satisfactory arrangements have been made for the removal of liquid and liquefiable
hydrocarbons at a separation and dehydration and/or processing plant on Transporter's
