hereunder shall be stated in terms of adjusted metered quantities with an assumed thermal content of one
thousand (1,000) Btu per cubic foot; provided, however, notwithstanding anything else contained herein to the
contrary, estimated metered or allocated volumes shall be utilized as appropriate to determine the volumes on
which transportation charges will be computed.
10.4 Either party shall have the right to examine at reasonable times agreed to by both parties,
books, records, and charts of the other party to the extent necessary to verify the accuracy of any statement,
chart, or computation made under or pursuant to provisions hereunder. The examining party shall have one year
after the close of a year in which to make an audit of the other party's records for such year.

Funds which are made immediately available to Transporter at such bank account as Transporter shall
designate, on or before the twentieth day following the date of the final monthly meter readings for
the gas delivered during the preceding Billing Month, except when the twentieth day of the month is a
Saturday, Sunday or federal bank holiday, in which case payment is due on the following business day.
All payments shall be considered to have been made on the date when Transporter has use of the funds.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Shipper whose monthly statement total amount due is less than

applied in accordance with the remittance detail.
(b) If Transporter’s rendering of a bill is delayed after the tenth (10th) day following
the date of the final monthly meter reading, then the time of payment shall be extended by the same
number of days unless Shipper is responsible for the delay.

on the unpaid portion of the bill shall be computed at the rate set forth in Section 154.501 of the
Commission's Regulations, prorated for the number of days from the due date of payment until the
actual date of payment.
(d) If Shipper in good faith disputes the amount of any bill or part thereof,

written documentation as to the basis for the dispute;
