system balances and operational control and to

effect deliveries. Transporter shall have no

liability in damages to any person for actions

or in accordance with the provisions of this

Section 20. Transporter shall not be required to

installing compression facilities or otherwise,

this Section 20.

other applicable terms and conditions of this

Tariff is essential if Transporter is to maintain

operational control of its system and be able to
