criteria, such Customer may still obtain credit approval by Pipeline if it pays any

outstanding balances due Pipeline for service rendered or has complied with Section

credit appraisal.


Such advance deposit, standby irrevocable letter of credit, security interest or

guarantee should at all times equal the amount equal to three (3) months of highest
