GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
7.12 Permanent Release of Capacity.
(a) Where a portion of a Shipper's capacity has
been released for the entire remaining term of the releasing
Shipper's service agreement without recall or interruption
rights, the releasing Shipper may request Southern Trails to
amend or terminate its service agreement to reflect a
permanent release of the capacity.
(b) Southern Trails shall not be obligated to amend
the releasing Shipper's service agreement to reflect a
permanent release of capacity unless the capacity is released
at the higher of the maximum rate or negotiated rate and for
the full term of the agreement and the replacement Shipper
meets Southern Trails' creditworthiness requirements.
Southern Trails may also condition an amendment to or
termination of the original agreement on payment of exit fees.
In lieu of exit fees, the replacement Shipper may enter into a
new service agreement containing terms and conditions
acceptable to Southern Trails. Southern Trails will not amend
or enter into a service agreement for a permanent release of
capacity at a volumetric rate.
(c) Unless agreed otherwise by Southern Trails,
the releasing Shipper shall remain liable for payment of the
reservation fee under the agreement. Southern Trails will not
unreasonably refuse to relieve the releasing Shipper from any
liabilities under the agreement. If capacity is permanently
released, and Southern Trails agrees to amend or terminate the
releasing Shipper's service agreement to reflect the permanent
release of capacity, the releasing Shipper will not be liable
for the payment of the reservation charges associated with the
permanently released capacity effective the date of the
amendment or termination of the releasing Shipper's agreement.
(d) If capacity is permanently released, the
replacement Shipper will acquire the right of first refusal
held by the releasing Shipper as described in 8 to this
tariff for the capacity acquired by the replacement Shipper.
7.13 Notice of Completed Transactions. Within one
business day after capacity has been awarded, Southern Trails
shall post the following information regarding each
transaction on Questline for a period of 30 days:
(a) The name of the replacement Shipper and the
release transaction number.
