OPERATIONAL BALANCING AGREEMENT (Continued)
1.2 Allocations Based on Confirmed Nominations - The Parties intend that the quantity actually
delivered at the Delivery Point(s) will be equal to the confirmed nominations. Operator
shall use all reasonable efforts to ensure that the quantities actually delivered at the
Delivery Point(s) are equal to the confirmed nominations. Unless prohibited by applicable
law or regulation, all transportation services and/or gas provided by Viking shall be
allocated each day based upon the confirmed nominations set forth in Section 1.1 above, or by
such other methods as may be mutually agreed to be both Parties.
1.3 Allocation of Variances - The difference on any day between the confirmed nominations set
forth in Section 1.1 above and the actual quantity delivered at the Delivery Point(s) shall
be the Daily Operational Imbalance and shall be allocated to this Agreement. The difference
between the sum of the confirmed nominations set forth in Section 1.1 above during a calendar
month and the total actual quantity delivered at the Delivery Point(s) during the calendar
month shall be the Monthly Operational Imbalance. Any Operational Imbalances will be
corrected in accordance with Article II.
1.4 Limitation on Takes - Upon notice by Viking under an Operational Flow Order (OFO), Operator
shall conform its takes to the terms and conditions of the OFO. If Operator fails to conform
its takes to the terms and conditions of an applicable OFO, then the excess quantities shall
be treated as unauthorized overruns under Rate Schedule LMS.
1.5 Reports on Actual Deliveries - Should Viking not have the ability to monitor actual
deliveries at any Delivery Point on a daily basis, Operator shall provide to Viking the best
available information compiled on a daily basis on the actual deliveries at such Delivery
Point(s) within two business days after the date of delivery. Nothing in the section will
require Operator to install metering devices where none currently exist.
CORRECTION OF OPERATIONAL IMBALANCES
2.1 Corrections in Flow Rates During A Day - Operator will be able to request adjustments to
actual deliveries at its Delivery Points at any time during the production day by
coordinating with Viking's gas dispatchers. Viking will use best efforts to deliver those
changed quantities when the operating conditions on Viking's system permit, taking into
consideration the nominations made by firm customers on Viking's system.
