requiring payment to El Paso at the appropriate rate

set forth in Section 20.11(e)(iv) above and such

Shipper also has an Unauthorized Gas balance, as

such term is defined in Section 27.1 of these

balance may be offset against the quantities due

El Paso within the same production basin and

is held. At the time of invoicing for the net

first offset any under or over-deliveries between

contracts with such Shipper.

 

Shipper or its suppliers shall be responsible for

reporting and payment of any royalty, tax, or other

burdens on natural gas volumes received by El Paso

and El Paso shall not be obligated to account for or

pay such burdens.

received net of gas and administrative costs from

cash-out assessed on El Paso or an affiliate of El Paso,

El Paso shall credit such net amount within 90 days of

the payment date to other Shippers on a pro rata basis in

accordance with the volumes transported for each Shipper.
