2.2 Corrections During the Month - Estimated metered quantities, or actual metered

Operational Imbalance at all of the Delivery Point(s). Company shall make the

estimated Daily and Monthly Operational Imbalance at each Delivery Point available

to Balancing Party within three (3) Business Days after each production day.

Adjustments in nominations and actual deliveries will be made by Balancing Party

Party fails to take such corrective action, Company may, upon forty-eight (48) hours

Party.
