practices to determine the acceptability of Shipper's

annual reports, 10-K reports or other filings with

regulatory agencies which discuss the Shipper's

financial status, a list of all corporate affiliates,

parent companies and subsidiaries, and any reports

from credit reporting and bond rating agencies which

are available. Panhandle shall determine the

acceptability of Shipper's overall financial

condition, working capital, and profitability trends.


(b) Shipper shall provide a bank reference and at least

two trade references. The results of reference

checks and any credit reports submitted in 6.2(a)

must show that Shipper's obligations are being paid

on a reasonably prompt basis.
