GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

18. BILLING AND PAYMENTS (Cont'd)

may copy any documents that can be properly audited hereunder, and each

party agrees that such copies will be used only for their purposes

hereunder and will not be disclosed to unrelated parties. All bills are

deemed accurate if not challenged within six (6) months of the invoice

date.

 

Invoices for all gas received or delivered during each billing period

will be prepared on or before the ninth business day after the end of

the production month. The imbalance statement will be rendered prior to

or with the invoice. Shippers may elect to receive their invoice and

imbalance statement by email rather than U.S. mail service. If Shipper

desires to receive their invoice and imbalance statement by email, they

must notify Southern Star in writing, or by sending an email to

sscgasrevenueaccounting@sscgp.com. The term "rendered" shall mean

postmarked, time-stamped and delivered to the designated site or time-

stamped and emailed to the email address designated by Shipper.

Southern Star will estimate missing or late measurement data and treat

actual as a prior period adjustment, with the measuring party providing

the estimate. Payment shall be made to Southern Star at the location

specified on the invoice, within ten days from the date of mailing or

other transmission of the invoice. Shipper shall submit supporting

documentation with any payment. Southern Star shall apply the payment

per the supporting documentation provided by the Shipper. If the

payment differs from the invoiced amount, remittance detail must be

provided with the payment, except when payment is made by electronic

fund transfer (EFT), in which case the remittance detail is due within

two business days of the payment due date. Shipper shall identify

invoice number(s) on all payments. If the invoice is in dispute,

Shipper shall pay the portion not in dispute and provide documentation

identifying the basis for the dispute.

 

If payment of such invoice is not received by Southern Star within the

time stated herein, interest thereon shall accrue monthly at the

currently effective rate stated in Section 154.501 of the Federal Energy

Regulatory Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act from the

due date until the date payment is received by Southern Star. In the

event the amount of the invoice is paid under protest and if it is later

determined that an overcharge has been paid, Southern Star shall refund

the amount of the overcharge with interest thereon from the date of

payment of the overcharge at the same rate currently charged for late

payments.

 

The time limitation for disputes of allocations shall be six (6) months

from the date of the initial month-end allocation with a three (3) month

rebuttal period. This standard shall not apply in the case of

deliberate omission or misrepresentation or mutual mistake of fact.

Parties' other statutory or contractual rights shall not otherwise be

diminished by this standard.
