13.3. Limitations. Force majeure affecting the performance hereunder by either

Shipper or UTOS however shall not relieve such Party of liability in the

event of concurring negligence or in the event of failure to use due

diligence to remedy the situation and to remove the cause in an adequate

manner and with all reasonable dispatch, nor shall such causes or

contingencies affecting such performance relieve either Party from its

obligations to make payments as determined hereunder. "Concurring

negligence," as used herein, is defined as negligence of a party that

causes, contributes substantially to the cause of, and or significantly

aggravates or prolongs the effects of, a force majeure event that the

party identifies as affecting its performance and relieving it of

liability for damages.

thereof, is insufficient to serve all transportation requirements scheduled for

curtailment shall be curtailed so as to provide the service that is possible.

Volumes shall be curtailed in the following order: (1) pro rata among both

requests for overrun service and confirmed nominations for service under Rate

Schedule IT, up to the Maximum Daily Volumes of the shippers nominating Rate

Schedule IT service; (2) pro rata among confirmed nominations for service under

Rate Schedule I, in accordance with the provisions of Rate Schedule I set forth on

the then-applicable Sheet Nos. 21 and 22 of this tariff; and (3) pro rata among

confirmed nominations for service under Rate Schedules T and FT, up to the

Currently Effective Contract Demands or Maximum Daily Quantities, as applicable,

of the shippers nominating a point which is a primary point under their existing

Service Agreement under Rate Schedule T or FT.
