Shipper agrees to supply or cause its designee to supply

to MEP upon demand, at any time and from time to time, a sample of

liquids removed from the Gas stream at any Receipt Point, whether

removed by a coalescer or otherwise, for analysis at a laboratory of

MEP's choosing. If at any time PCBs or any other toxic substances or

chemicals that MEP deems hazardous and/or in any way unsafe for

transportation are found in the liquid samples supplied to MEP by

Shipper, MEP may in its sole discretion immediately cease the receipt

of such Gas and any associated liquids through its facilities. Upon

proof that such toxic or hazardous substances are no longer present

at levels deemed unsafe by MEP, MEP shall restore service to Shipper

at the affected Receipt Point.




Should any Gas delivered by or on behalf of Shipper to

MEP at any Receipt Point fail at any time to conform to any of the

specifications provided for in this Section 19, MEP may, at its

option, suspend all or a portion of the receipt of any such Gas. MEP

shall be relieved of any of its obligations for the duration of such

suspension. Upon receipt of MEP's notice of such a failure, Shipper

shall make a diligent effort to correct the failure by treatment or

dehydration consistent with prudent operation so as to tender Gas

conforming to the specifications provided for in this Section 19.




Non-conforming Gas will likely enter MEP's system from

time-to-time. Once MEP becomes aware based on periodic quality

measurements that non-conforming Gas is entering its system, it will

promptly advise the Shipper(s) and point operators involved that the

Gas they are tendering is non-conforming, identifying the nature and

extent of the non-conformity, and that the Gas quality standards

herein must be met. Where operationally feasible, MEP will continue

to accept non-conforming Gas for a limited period of time while the

Shipper(s) or point operators involved take steps to adjust

operations so as to address the Gas quality issues. In addition,

where operationally feasible MEP may, from time to time, on a not

unduly discriminatory basis, accept non-conforming Gas to the extent

it is able to blend Gas received at Receipt Points, as long as MEP

reasonably anticipates, in its sole judgment, that such blended Gas

will not cause operational or downstream problems at its Delivery
