ARTICLE 3 - CORRECTION OF OPERATIONAL IMBALANCES

(Continued)

 

3.2 Corrections During the Month - Estimated metered quantities, or actual metered

quantities where available, may be used by Company for purposes of adjustments under

this Section on a daily basis during the month to determine the estimated Operational

Imbalance at all of the Delivery Point(s). Company shall make the estimated Daily

Variances and Monthly Operational Imbalances at each Delivery Point available to

Balancing Party by the third Business Day after each production day. Company or

Balancing Party may make adjustments in nominations and actual deliveries upon

24 hours notice by making imbalance make up nominations pursuant to this Agreement

and in accordance with the applicable provisions of Company's Tariff. Any such

adjustments will offset pre-existing imbalances accrued during the month.

 

3.3 Corrections in Subsequent Periods - As soon as practicable following the close of

each month, Company will send Balancing Party a statement setting forth the accrued

Daily Variances and the Monthly Operational Imbalance existing at the end of the

prior month. Any Monthly Operational Imbalance shall be corrected in cash in

accordance with Rate Schedule LMS-MA of Company's Tariff unless the Parties mutually

agree otherwise.

 

3.4 Measurement of Operational Imbalance - Any gas received or delivered pursuant to this

Agreement to correct an Operational Imbalance shall be adjusted for variation in Btu

content. Measurement of gas for all purposes shall be in accordance with Company's

FERC Gas Tariff.

action as may be required to adjust deliveries of gas in order to alleviate

conditions that threaten the integrity of its system.
