OPERATIONAL BALANCING AGREEMENT (Continued)
1.5 Unauthorized deliveries - Upon notice by Viking under an Operational Flow Order (OFO),
Operator shall confirm its deliveries to the terms and conditions of the OFO. If Operator
fails to conform its deliveries to the terms and conditions of the applicable OFO, the excess
quantities will be treated as unauthorized deliveries and will be subject to a charge as set
forth in Article III of the General Terms and Conditions of Viking's FERC Gas Tariff.
CORRECTION OF OPERATIONAL IMBALANCES
2.1 Corrections During the Month - Estimated metered quantities, or actual metered quantities
where available, shall be used by Viking for purposes of adjustments under this Section on a
daily basis during the production month to determine the estimated Operational Imbalance at
(all of) the Receipt Point(s). Viking shall make the estimated Daily and Monthly Operational
Imbalance (at each Receipt Point) available to Operator within three (3) business days after
each production day. Adjustments in nominations and actual deliveries may be made by Viking
or Operator during the production month to adequately control imbalance levels. If Operator
fails to take such corrective action, Viking may, upon 48 hours notice, adjust the
nominations and actual receipts during the remainder of the production month to adequately
control imbalance levels. Any such adjustments will be incorporated in the daily nominations
confirmed between Viking and Operator.
2.2 Corrections in Subsequent Periods - As soon as practicable following the close of each month,
Viking will send Operator a statement setting forth the Monthly Operational Imbalance
existing at the end of the prior month. Any Monthly Operational Imbalance shall be corrected
in cash in accordance with Rate Schedule LMS of Viking's FERC Gas Tariff Volume No. 1, unless
the parties mutually agree otherwise. For purposes of correcting imbalances in cash in
accordance with Rate Schedule LMS, any difference between actual deliveries and confirmed
nominations will be treated as "Excess Receipts."
2.3 Measurement of Operational Imbalance - Any gas received or delivered pursuant to this
Agreement shall be adjusted for variation in Btu content. Measurement of gas for all
purposes shall be in accordance with Viking's FERC Gas Tariff.
2.4 Operational Integrity - Nothing in this Article II shall limit Viking's right to take action
as may be required to adjust receipts of gas in order to alleviate conditions which threaten
the integrity of its system.
