8.13 Permanent Release of Capacity.


(a) Where a portion of a Shipper's capacity has

the releasing Shipper's service agreement without recall or

interruption rights, the releasing Shipper may request

Overthrust to amend or terminate its service agreement to

reflect the permanent release of the capacity.


(b) Overthrust shall not be obligated to amend

the releasing Shipper's service agreement to reflect the

permanently released capacity unless the capacity is

released at the maximum rate and for the full term of the

agreement and the replacement Shipper meets Overthrust's

creditworthiness requirements and Overthrust receives

approval from its lenders. Overthrust may also condition an

amendment to or termination of the agreement on payment of

exit fees. In lieu of exit fees, the replacement Shipper

may enter into a new service agreement containing terms and

conditions acceptable to Overthrust and its lenders.

for a permanent release of capacity at a volumetric rate.

held by the releasing Shipper as described in 9 to this

tariff for the capacity acquired by the replacement Shipper.
