18.3 (B) Credit-worthiness for Interruptible Transportation Service



(d) A demonstration by the Shipper that the Company

has sufficient financial capacity or backing to

warrant an extension of credit. This

demonstration could include proof of banking

relationships sufficient to cover the service

references within the industry, exhibiting a good

credit history.


(2) If Shipper does not demonstrate credit-worthiness,

Shipper has the option of receiving interruptible

transportation service under this FERC Gas Tariff First

letter of credit in an amount equal to the cost of

performing the maximum level of service requested for a

three (3) month period of time. The letter of credit must

be from a credit worthy financial institution and be in

place before the Transportation Service Agreement can

be signed. The Shipper also has the option of

transportation services on a month-to-month basis

pursuant to the following terms:


(a) For a calendar month in which transportation

service is desired (delivery month), Shipper must

notify PG&E GT-NW no later than eight (8) business days

prior to the commencement of delivery month

(estimation date) of its estimation of the

maximum, cumulative gas deliveries (monthly

estimation) desired for the delivery month. (For

Shipper's initial monthly estimation, the delivery

month, or remaining portion thereof, shall

commence eight (8) days after the estimation

date.) Notice of monthly estimation may be

telephonic or written; telephonic notices must be

confirmed in writing and received by PG&E GT-NW within

five (5) business days. PG&E GT-NW will advise Shipper

within forty-eight (48) hours of the estimation

date of the exact dollar amount of the prepayment.

Shipper shall not deliver or receive gas in excess

of the monthly estimation during delivery

month. (Continued)
