in accord with (h) above. As a courtesy to Releasing Shipper, Transporter shall

endeavor to notify Releasing Shipper of the Replacement Shipper's failure to pay

its bill in full when due after Transporter becomes aware of such failure;

provided, however, that Transporter's inability or failure to provide notice to

Releasing Shipper shall not excuse Releasing Shipper from making timely and full

payment of the applicable reservation charges. Releasing Shipper shall be

responsible for obtaining reimbursement for any such payment from Replacement

Shipper. Failure of either the Replacement Shipper or Releasing Shipper to pay

bills shall entitle Transporter to exercise the remedies available under the

Transportation Agreement and this Tariff, including suspension of service to the

Releasing Shipper and the Replacement Shipper, as well as any other remedies

available to Transporter.


j) Any increase in Transporter's rates, charges and surcharges shall remain the

responsibility of the Releasing Shipper; provided, however, that the Releasing

Shipper may provide in its Release Request for the rates, charges or surcharges for

released transportation rights to increase in accordance with any such increases in

Transporter's rates, charges and surcharges. In either circumstance, any refunds

of any rates or charges ordered by the FERC shall be paid by Transporter to the

Releasing Shipper and distributed to the Replacement Shipper in the manner

specified in the release request and incorporated in the Released Service



k) The Replacement Shipper's service under a release shall be subject to and governed

by the terms and conditions of the Releasing Shipper's Transportation Agreement and

governing rate schedule and the Released Transportation Agreement.


l) Transporter shall accept nominations, schedule service, afford priority of service

and curtail service based on instructions and communications from the Releasing

Shipper and the Replacement Shipper which are consistent with one another and with

the terms and conditions of Transporter's Tariff and their respective service

agreements. In the event that instructions or nominations from the Releasing

Shipper and Replacement Shipper are, in Transporter's sole opinion, inconsistent or

conflicting, Transporter shall use reasonable efforts to contact the Releasing

Shipper and Replacement Shipper to resolve the conflicting communications. In the

event Transporter is unable to resolve the conflict prior to the time that it must

take the required action, Transporter shall comply with the instructions of the

Releasing Shipper; provided however that such instructions must not be inconsistent

with Transporter's Tariff or the terms of either the Releasing Shipper's or
