TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
21. BALANCING (Continued)
(e) Actual delivered quantity exceeds scheduled delivery
An imbalance shall exist when the quantity delivered
exceeds the quantity scheduled (nominated and confirmed).
Penalty: When the difference between the actual delivered
quantity and the scheduled delivery quantity is in excess
of 10% of the scheduled quantity or 1000 Dth whichever is
greater, the Shipper shall be assessed a charge of $5/Dth
applied to the excess quantity.
Imbalance determinations as described above will be
performed on a daily basis and each daily occurrence will
constitute a separate incident. It is recognized and
understood that more than one penalty provision may apply
to each imbalance incident.
In the event that any penalty would otherwise be
applicable under these provisions as a direct consequence
of any action or failure to take action by GTN or the
failure of any facility under GTN's control, or an event
of force majeure as defined in these Transportation General Terms
and Conditions, said penalty shall not apply.
Interruptible Shippers will be notified whether penalties will
apply on the day their volumes are reduced. GTN shall
waive non-critical penalties for bumped shippers on the day of
the bump. Waiver of non-critical penalties shall not relieve the
shipper from the obligation to take corrective action to
eliminate ongoing imbalances.
The payment of a penalty in dollars pursuant to Paragraph
21 shall under no circumstances be considered as giving
any Shipper the right to deliver or take overrun
Upon termination of a Service Agreement, Shipper shall
have 60 days to correct any remaining imbalances. After
his period has elapsed, GTN shall have the right to retain
any negative imbalance quantity without compensation to
the Shipper and shall assess a charge of $5/Dth for any
positive imbalance quantity as applicable.
