Page 2 of 7

 

 

 

WHEREAS, Operator and Northern desire to establish the method of

 

resolving differences that may occur between the total quantities of gas

 

scheduled [for receipt or delivery by Operator from or to Northern at the

 

Interconnection Point(s)/ for delivery to Northern at the Receipt

 

Point(s)] and the actual quantities measured.

 

NOW THEREFORE, Operator and Northern agree that such over- or

 

under-deliveries at the [Interconnection/Receipt Point(s)] be handled in

 

the following manner subject to the provisions of Paragraph 7 included

 

herewith:

 

1. Confirmation of Nominations

 

Prior to the first day of each month and each day thereafter during

 

the month, the parties shall reconcile and confirm in writing [the

 

nominations received by each from shippers for whom the parties deliver

 

or receive gas at the Interconnection Point(s)/the quantities nominated

 

by each of the shippers for whom Operator controls gas supplies delivered

 

to Northern]. Any changes to such confirmed nominations shall be

 

effective only if agreed to in writing by both parties. A summary of the

 

total confirmed nominations must be completed and signed by both parties

 

as soon as practical after the end of the month. Such written

 

communication shall be substantially in the form set out on the attached

 

Exhibit 2 or in any other form agreeable to the parties.

 

 

2. Allocation of Quantities

 

The parties intend that the quantities actually delivered [and

 

received] each day at the [Interconnection/Receipt Point(s)] will

 

equal the confirmed nominations.
