14. BILLING AND PAYMENT

 

14.1 Billing:

 

The transportation invoice shall be prepared on or before

the 9th business day after the end of the production month.

Transporter shall render to Shipper a statement of the

volumes and the Btu content of the gas received for the

account of Shipper for transportation, the volumes and the

Btu content of the gas delivered to or for the account of

Shipper, and the amount of lost-and-unaccounted-for gas

allocated to Shipper in the preceding month. Imbalance

statements shall be generated at the same time or prior to

the generation of the transportation invoice. The

imbalance statement shall be rendered prior to or with the

invoice. Rendered is defined as postmarked, time-stamped,

and delivered to the designated site. Transporter may

furnish separate statements to Shipper that include an

account of any credits and/or penalty charges accrued by

Shipper. Invoices shall be based on actuals (if available)

or best available data. Quantities at a point where an OBA

exists should be invoiced based on scheduled quantities.

Unless otherwise agreed, transportation invoices shall

state the net billing rate rather than the discounted

Maximum Rate and the discount amount. Billing units will

be stated in Dekatherms.

 

14.2 Payment:

 

Billing statements shall be deemed to be received by each

Shipper within three (3) business days after the date they

are mailed by Transporter. Shipper shall make payments to

Transporter for the services performed or charges levied

hereunder during the preceding month by electronic bank

transfer (i.e. wire transfer, ACH transfer or other

mutually acceptable transfer method) or by check, at such

address as Transporter may hereafter designate, on or

before the later of the twenty-fifth (25th) day of the

month or ten (10) days after Shipper's receipt of the

billing statement. Any amount due Shipper from Transporter

shall be paid in a like manner. All payments made by

Shipper shall include Transporter's invoice number(s) and

supporting documentation for purposes of matching the

payment to the invoice.

 

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.
