Unless otherwise specified in an applicable tariff, general terms

and conditions, or contract, the effective payment due date of an

invoice when such due date does not fall upon a Business Day (as

defined in NAESB Standard 3.2.1) should be the first Business Day

following the due date.

 

14.3 Interest on Unpaid or Overpaid Amounts:

 

Should Shipper fail to pay any amount when due, or if found to

have paid in excess of the amount ultimately due pursuant to the

resolution of a good faith dispute ("overpaid amount"), interest

on the unpaid or overpaid amount shall accrue at a rate equal to

the lesser of the rate then set forth in Section 154.501 of the

Commission's Regulations or the highest amount allowed by law from

the date payment was due, pursuant to Section 14.2, and continue

until payment to Transporter or refund to Shipper is made.

 

14.4 Failure to Pay:

 

If, except in the case of a good faith dispute, Shipper fails to

make payment to Transporter pursuant to Section 14.2, and such

failure to make payment continues for twenty (20) days or more,

Transporter may suspend the further transportation of gas under

Shipper's Transportation Service Agreements upon ten (10) days

prior written notice to Shipper and the Commission, but the

exercise of such right shall be in addition to any other remedy

available to Transporter. In such circumstance, the provisions of

Subsection 7.3 (c) of these General Terms and Conditions shall not

apply.

 

14.5 Good Faith Dispute:

 

If Shipper, in good faith, disputes the amount due Transporter on

a billing statement, Shipper shall provide a description and

supporting documentation of its position and timely submit payment

of the amount it states is due Transporter. Transporter shall

apply such payment in accordance with Shipper's documentation.

Shipper agrees that Transporter's acceptance of a partial payment

does not waive Transporter's right to full payment after

resolution of the disputed invoice in the future. Shipper and

Transporter shall use all reasonable efforts to resolve the

dispute; provided, however, if the resolution of the good faith

dispute results in Shipper or Transporter owing the other an

additional amount, then the provisions of Section 14.3 shall apply

from the date payment was due, pursuant to Section 14.2, until

payment of the additional amount is made. The provisions of

Section 14.6 shall not apply in the case of a good faith dispute.
