received from such natural gas companies.

Demand Charge shown on such Sheet No. 27 to reflect the change in
Supplier's Monthly Deliverability and Monthly Reservation Charges.
(ii) Storage Capacity Quantity Charge - The Storage Capacity Quantity Charge
shown on Sheet No. 27 of this Tariff is based on the Storage Capacity
Charge to be paid by Seller to National Fuel for storage service. Seller

to reflect the change in the National Fuel Storage Capacity Charge.
(iii) Charges for Quantities Injected and Withdrawn - The Quantity Injected and
Quantity Withdrawn charges shown on Sheet No. 27 of this Tariff are based
on the commodity costs/charges of Supplier to inject and withdraw Buyer's
storage quantities. Seller shall reduce or increase, as appropriate, the
Quantity Injected and the Quantity Withdrawn Charges shown on Sheet No.
27 to reflect the commodity charges of Supplier.
(b) Notification - Seller shall give notice via its electronic bulletin board of any
proposed rate change filed by National Fuel which Seller is authorized to track
under this rate schedule within three (3) business days following Seller's
receipt of such filing. Such notice shall include the expected effect on
Seller's rates under this Rate Schedule.
(c) Seller's Tracker Filings - Seller shall file to track any rate change by National
Fuel which affects Seller's rates under this rate schedule no later than thirty
(30) days following the issuance date of the Commission order which accepts and
makes effective National Fuel's rate change. The effective date of such change
in Seller's rates shall coincide with the effective date of any change in rates
by National Fuel.
(d) Refunds - Within forty-five (45) days of the receipt thereof, Seller shall refund
to its customers under this Rate Schedule all amounts refunded to Seller by
Supplier under the related storage and transportation rate schedules, including
any interest paid by Supplier. Each customer's proportionate part of such refund
