25. PENALTY REVENUE CREDITING MECHANISM
Transporter shall establish an account to which it will credit all penalties imposed and
collected and debit all costs incurred and paid out as a result of any activities or
circumstances for which a penalty may be imposed under this FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised
Volume No. 1. Such activities or circumstances shall include but not be limited to: Shipper
imbalances as described in Section 3.3 of the General Terms and Conditions; scheduling
deviations as described in Section 3.5 of the General Terms and Conditions; daily imbalances as
described in Section 2 (j) of Rate Schedule EFT, Enhanced Firm Transportation Service; and
Parked or Loaned gas as described in Sections 2.1 (D) and (I) of Rate Schedule MC, Market Center
Service. Interest shall accrue on the balance in the account at the rate set forth in Section
154.501 of the Commission's Regulations.
Transporter shall distribute the balance in this account as of the earlier of September 30 of
each year or the end of any month during which such balance exceeds $1,000,000.00 by crediting
the applicable Shipper's invoice for the following month's service, or by issuing a check or
wire transfer. Transporter may also distribute the account balance at any other time Transporter
deems necessary for administrative purposes. The balance shall be allocated to all shippers
based upon the ratio of each Shipper's total transportation charges for each of the preceding
months since the last distribution date (whether or not a distribution was made) during months
for which that Shipper did not incur any penalties, to the total of all such transportation
charges for all Shippers for such period. Transporter shall post calculations supporting any
such distribution on its Web site for at least sixty (60) days following such distribution.
