GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
I. Revenues associated with DDVC charges shall be credited to Shippers in accordance with
Section 57 of the GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS of this Tariff.
J. In the event a Shipper would be assessed both a receipt point scheduling penalty and
DDVC charge for the same scheduling variance from a receipt point to a delivery point,
Northern will charge the Shipper the higher of the receipt point scheduling penalty or
the DDVC charge, but not both.
K. Northern reserves the right to waive DDVC's in a not unduly discriminatory manner. In
the event Northern calls a Critical or SOL Day, negative DDVCs for the affected area
will be waived. In the event Northern calls an SUL day, positive and punitive DDVCs for
the affected area will be waived.
L. Northern shall provide affected parties with notification of Critical Days through the
Shipper's choice of Electronic Notice Delivery Mechanism. Unless the affected party
and Northern have agreed to exclusive notification via EDI/EDM, the affected party
should provide Northern with at least one Internet E-mail address to be used for
Electronic Notice Delivery of notification of Critical Days. The obligation of
Northern to provide notification is waived until the above requirement has been met.

creating a positive or negative imbalance on the SBA agreement. Northern will not
purchase, take title to or sell the gas provided under the SBA's. SBA fees to fulfill
the overall SBA requirements will be as agreed to between SBA providers and Northern.
