GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
17.8 Any billing or statement may be contested within 180 days from its
receipt by Shipper. If invoice is in dispute, Shipper shall pay the portion
not in dispute and provide documentation identifying basis for the dispute.
Overthrust shall have 90 days to provide its rebuttal. This time limit shall
not apply in cases of deliberate omission, misrepresentation or mutual
mistake of fact.
If Shipper (i) contests all or any part of a bill in good faith, (ii)
pays to Overthrust the amounts it concedes to be correct, (iii) provides
documentation identifying the basis of the dispute and (iv) within 30 days of
a demand made by Overthrust, furnishes a surety bond guaranteeing payment in
the amount of the disputed portion of the bill, then Overthrust may not
suspend further delivery of gas unless default has occurred under the
conditions of the bond. No payment by Shipper of the amount of a disputed
bill shall prejudice the right of shipper to claim an adjustment of the
disputed bill. Shipper shall pay interest on disputed portions of a bill for
which shipper has withheld payment, and which ultimately are found due,
according to the provisions of this tariff.
17.9 If an error is discovered in the amount of any bill, the error
shall be adjusted within 30 days of the determination that an adjustment is
required, provided that the claim for adjustment shall have been made within
180 days from the date of the bill. If it is determined that Shipper has
been overcharged, and Shipper has paid the statement containing the
overcharge then, within 30 days after the final determination, Overthrust
shall refund the amount overcharged with interest at the rate prescribed by
18 C.F.R. § 154.501(d). If it is determined that Shipper has been
undercharged, Shipper shall pay the amount undercharged with appropriate
interest within 30 days of notice by Overthrust of the amount. Provided,
however, no adjustment will be made to any statement more than 24 months from
the date of such statement unless disputed within 180 days from its receipt
by Shipper. In the event that any portion of a statement is in dispute,
payment of the disputed portion shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to
contest such disputed portion in any forum having jurisdiction.
17.10 Prior Period Adjustments. Prior period adjustment-time limits
shall be 6 months from the date of the initial transportation invoice and 7
months from date of initial sales invoice with a 3-month rebuttal period,
excluding government-required rate changes. This standard shall not apply in
cases of deliberate omission, misrepresentation or mutual mistake of fact.
Parties' other statutory or contractual rights shall not otherwise be
diminished by this standard.
17.11 Billing For Released Capacity.
(a) A releasing Shipper will be billed the reservation charges
associated with the entire amount of the
