          (c) To the extent that, at law or in equity, an Indemnitee has duties
(including fiduciary duties) and liabilities relating thereto to the Partnership
or to the Partners, the General Partner and any other Indemnitee acting in
connection with the Partnership's business or affairs shall not be liable to the
Partnership or to any Partner for its good faith reliance on the provisions of
this Agreement.  The provisions of this Agreement, to the extent that they
restrict or otherwise modify the duties and liabilities of an Indemnitee
otherwise existing at law or in equity, are agreed by the Partners to replace
such other duties and liabilities of such Indemnitee.

          (d) Any amendment, modification or repeal of this Section 7.8 or any
provision hereof shall be prospective only and shall not in any way affect the
limitations on the liability to the Partnership, the Limited Partner, the
General Partner, and the Partnership's and General Partner's directors, officers
and employees under this Section 7.8 as in effect immediately prior to such
amendment, modification or repeal with respect to claims arising from or
relating to matters occurring, in whole or in part, prior to such amendment,
modification or repeal, regardless of when such claims may arise or be asserted.

      7.9 RESOLUTION OF CONFLICTS OF INTEREST.

          (a) Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or the MLP
Agreement, whenever a potential conflict of interest exists or arises between
the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, on the one hand, and the
Partnership, the MLP, any Partner or any Assignee, on the other, any resolution
or course of action by the General Partner or its Affiliates in respect of such
conflict of interest shall be permitted and deemed approved by all Partners, and
shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement, of the MLP Agreement, of any
agreement contemplated herein or therein, or of any duty stated or implied by
law or equity, if the resolution or course of action is, or by operation of this
Agreement is deemed to be, fair and reasonable to the Partnership.  The General
Partner shall be authorized but not required in connection with its resolution
of such conflict of interest to seek Special Approval of such resolution.  Any
conflict of interest and any resolution of such conflict of interest shall be
conclusively deemed fair and reasonable to the Partnership if such conflict of
interest or resolution is (i) approved by Special Approval (as long as the
material facts within the actual knowledge of the officers and directors of the
General Partner and EPC regarding the proposed transaction were disclosed to the
Audit and Conflicts Committee at the time it gave its approval), (ii) on terms
no less favorable to the Partnership than those generally being provided to or
available from unrelated third parties or (iii) fair to the Partnership, taking
into account the totality of the relationships between the parties involved
(including other transactions that may be particularly favorable or advantageous
to the Partnership).  The General Partner may also adopt a resolution or course
of action that has not received Special Approval.  The General Partner
(including the Audit and Conflicts Committee in connection with Special
Approval) shall be authorized in connection with its determination of what is
"fair and reasonable" to the Partnership and in connection with its resolution
of any conflict of interest to consider (A) the relative interests of any party
to such conflict, agreement, transaction or situation and the benefits and
burdens relating to such interest; (B) any customary or accepted industry
practices and any customary or historical dealings with a particular Person; (C)
any applicable generally accepted accounting practices or principles; and (D)
such additional factors as the General Partner (including the Audit and
Conflicts Committee) determines in its sole discretion to be relevant,
reasonable or appropriate under the circumstances.  Nothing contained in this
Agreement, however, is intended to nor shall it be
