10.1 Invoices: An invoice will be rendered to Shipper no later than nine days following

the close of the applicable production month. The invoice will separately state

applicable charges for FT-1 service, IT-1 service, and imbalance penalties, and the

rates set forth in the invoice will reflect net billing rate. Unless otherwise

provided for in a Shipper's service agreement, invoices will reflect the following

units of measurement: dekatherms for United States transactions and gigajoules for

Canadian transactions.

 

10.2 Data Reflected in Invoice: Invoices should be based on actuals (if available)

or best available data. Quantities at points where OBAs exist should be invoiced

based on scheduled quantities. Required back up data will be provided no later than

the date of the invoice. Shippers may request reasonable additional information,

which Crossroads will use its best efforts to provide.

 

10.3 Adjustments to Invoice: Prior period adjustment time limits should be 6 months from the

date of the initial transportation invoice and 7 months from date of initial sales invoice

with a 3 month rebuttal period, excluding government-required rate changes. 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.

 

11. PAYMENT

 

11.1 Payment: On or before the twenty-fifth (25th) day of the month or the next business

day in the event the twenty-fifth (25th) is a weekend or holiday, Shipper shall pay

Crossroads by wire transfer of federal funds, the amount of the bill rendered by

Crossroads for the billing month in accordance with Section 10 above. All payments

must state the applicable Crossroads invoice number. Any payment shall be considered

to have been made on the date such payment is transferred by Shipper to the address

designated by Crossroads.

 

11.2 Interest on Unpaid Amounts: Should Shipper fail to pay the amount of and bill rendered

by Crossroads when such amount is due, interest shall accrue thereon at a rate of

interest equal to the then effective rate computed in the manner set forth in Section

154.67(c) of the Commission's Regulations.

 

11.3 Remedies for Failure to Pay: If such failure to pay continues for thirty (30) days

after payment is due, Crossroads, in addition to any other remedy it may have,

may (subject to obtaining any requisite regulatory approval) suspend further

delivery of gas until such amount is paid unless Shipper in good faith disputes the

amount claimed, has fully paid any amounts not in dispute, and provides adequate

surety for all disposed amounts.

 

11.4 Right to Set Off Unpaid Amounts: In the event the Shipper does not pay the full

amount due Crossroads in accordance with Section 11.1 hereof, Crossroads, without

prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have, shall have the right to

withhold and set off payment of any amounts of monies due or owing by Crossroads to

Shipper, whether in connection with this Agreement or otherwise, against any and all

amounts or monies due or owing by Shipper to Crossroads for services performed by

Crossroads for Shipper.

 

11.5 Late Billing: If presentation of a bill by Crossroads is delayed after the due date,

then the time for payment shall be extended correspondingly unless Shipper is

responsible for such delay.

 

11.6 Challenges to Invoices: If Shipper challenges all or part of an invoice, Shipper

must, within the time period prescribed in Section 11.1 herein, submit remittance

detail explaining in detail the reasons for the challenge and the amount of the

invoice being challenged. All such remittance details must reflect the applicable

Crossroads invoice number. If Shipper challenges only part of an invoice, it shall

timely remit payment for the undisputed portion.
