(c) Access to Information

 

Upon request, and to the extent Company has electronic measurement information

available to it, Company will make available within one Business Day the best

information it has concerning the total physical deliveries at applicable receipt

and delivery points. Company will also make available by electronic means the

best information it has concerning the scheduled and allocated receipts and

deliveries at all of Balancing Party's receipt and delivery points by the end of

the third Business Day after each Gas Day. This information will include

electronic gas measurement data at meters where such data is utilized for billing

purposes (Electronic Data). Company will designate the points where Electronic

Data is available. Balancing Parties will be entitled to rely on the Electronic

Data for purposes of correcting imbalances during the month. Balancing Parties

will not be entitled to rely on the data from other receipt or delivery points for

purposes of correcting imbalances during the month and will be responsible for

verifying the actual receipts and deliveries at receipt and delivery points where

no Electronic Data is available. Imbalances will be cashed-out on the basis of

actual receipts and deliveries and scheduled nominations; provided that the

penalty level associated with imbalances that are associated with receipt or

delivery points where Electronic Data is available will be based upon the lesser

of (1) the monthly imbalance reported by Company for the last day of the month

based upon the Electronic Data or (2) the monthly imbalance based upon actual

receipts and deliveries at such locations; provided, however, that if the monthly

imbalance reported by Company for the 20th day of the calendar month based upon

Electronic Data is subsequently adjusted during the remainder of the month and

(1) such adjustment materially increases the level of the imbalance and

(2) Balancing Party did not have adequate time to correct the imbalance by

adjusting nominations, receipts or deliveries, then the penalty level associated

with imbalances at points where Electronic Data is available will be based upon

the lesser of (a) the imbalance reported on the 20th day of the calendar month

plus the imbalance reported for each subsequent day in the calendar month, or

(b) the monthly imbalance based upon actual deliveries at such points to the

extent that applicable OBA documents the situation. Notwithstanding anything to

the contrary, if the Electronic Data at any point is inaccurate, through no fault

of Company, but rather as the result of the action or inaction of third parties,

then the penalty level associated with monthly imbalances occurring at such points

will be based upon the Electronic Data, unless Company also incurs penalties, in

which event the penalties to Shipper will be determined based upon actual

deliveries.

 

(d) Any imbalances caused by an event as set forth in Section 10 of the General Terms

and Conditions or caused by Company's actions (1) will not be included in the

calculation of the total monthly imbalance for purposes of determining the

appropriate cash-out level and (2) will be cashed out at the 0-5 percentage

tolerance level, as set forth in Section 5 of this Rate Schedule.
