13. RESOLUTION OF IMBALANCES

 

13.1 Responsibility to Control Imbalances:

 

(a) A Shipper receiving any transportation service from

Transporter will use, or will cause any party delivering or

receiving Shipper's gas to use, all reasonable efforts to

ensure that receipt and deliveries of gas are equal to

Shipper's scheduled quantities at the Receipt and Delivery

Points pursuant to Shipper's Transportation Service

Agreement(s).

 

(b) Transporter will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that

delivery of gas pursuant to its Transportation Service

Agreement(s) is equal to Shipper's scheduled quantities at

the Delivery Point(s).

 

13.2 Resolution of Monthly Imbalances:

 

(a) Shipper and Transporter shall use all reasonable, good faith

efforts to minimize imbalances and to eliminate any

imbalances that occur as soon as possible, taking into

consideration (i) the impairment of Transporter's ability to

discharge its commitments to other Shippers, (ii) the time

period allowed for cure by affected downstream pipeline(s)

in order to avoid or minimize penalties that may be levied

by such pipeline(s), and (iii) the operational integrity of

Transporter's Facility.

 

(b) On a daily basis, Transporter will provide its best

available estimate data ("Operating Data") on receipts and

deliveries to Shipper to enable Shipper a reasonable

opportunity to correct any accumulated imbalances during

such calendar month. Based on the information provided by

Transporter to Shipper, Shipper shall take prompt action to

correct any imbalances by making appropriate adjustments in

Shipper's nominations, receipts or deliveries on a pro rata

basis over the remainder of the day or month, as applicable,

in order to restore a balance of receipts and deliveries on

Transporter's MP Facility or Transporter's DI Facility, as

applicable (unless Transporter directs Shipper to correct an

imbalance over a shorter period of time to avoid penalties

or for operational reasons). Shipper will be entitled to

rely on Transporter's Operating Data for purposes of

correcting such imbalances during the month. The imbalance

adjustment percentage in Section 13.3(b) and (c) will be

determined by the end of the month imbalance calculated

using the lesser of Operating Data or Actual Data.
