GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

14. UNAUTHORIZED DELIVERY OF GAS

 

14.1 DEFINITION

 

"Unauthorized Gas" shall mean any volume of gas

delivered to Natural that Natural cannot identify as being

delivered pursuant to a transportation nomination on behalf of an

existing Shipper.

 

14.2 APPLICABILITY NOTICE AND CLAIMS

 

All Unauthorized Gas shall be subject to this Section.

Natural shall give notice in writing to the owner/Shipper of the

Unauthorized Gas (if known) and to the operator of the applicable

supply point where the Unauthorized Gas was received, that said

Unauthorized Gas is subject to these provisions and will be posted

on the Informational Postings portion of Natural's Interactive

Website. In addition, on the first business day following the

fifteenth of each month, Natural shall post on the Informational

Postings portion of Natural's Interactive Website the volume, date

first received on Natural's system, and point of receipt of any

Unauthorized Gas received ("Notice"). Natural will continue to

post the Notice on the Informational Postings portion of Natural's

Interactive Website until a Valid Claim has been submitted or until

one hundred twenty (120) days after the initial posting of the

Notice. In order to be a Valid Claim for purposes hereof, a claim

must: (a) be provided to Natural in writing; (b) identify the

specific Unauthorized Gas delivered; (c) provide independent

evidence of ownership of the Unauthorized Gas claimed; and (d)

agree to indemnify Natural fully with respect to any adverse claims

to ownership of the gas or to the proceeds resulting from the sale

thereof. In addition, the Unauthorized Gas must be nominated to an

effective transportation Agreement with Natural that contains the

Receipt Point at which the Unauthorized Gas was received ("Valid

Nomination") in order to prevent the accrual of further penalties

under Section 14.3 hereof.
