GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

4.10 Billing. The Replacement Customer shall be billed and shall make

payments to Saltville in accordance with the applicable rate

schedule, other provisions of this FERC Gas Tariff and of the

applicable addendum to the Capacity Release Umbrella Agreement

incorporating its bid terms. In accordance with the terms of the

release, the Replacement Customer shall pay or be liable for the

maximum usage charges (plus all applicable surcharges, Fuel

Reimbursement, penalties, etc.) applicable under the relevant rate

schedule attributable to the Replacement Customer's usage of the

released capacity. Saltville shall continue to bill the Releasing

Customer all applicable charges under its existing service

agreement, excluding usage charges (plus all applicable

surcharges, Fuel Reimbursement, penalties, etc.) billed to the

Replacement Customer and attributable to its usage of the released

capacity. Invoices sent to the Releasing Customer shall reflect a

credit equal to any Reservation Charges (plus all surcharges

applicable thereto) being billed to the Replacement Customer for

the released capacity rights, or as otherwise agreed. If the

Replacement Customer fails to pay when due all or part of the

amounts credited to the Releasing Customer and has not notified

Saltville of a billing dispute in accordance with the provisions

of Sections 14.3 and 14.5 of these General Terms and Conditions,

Saltville shall pursue payment from the Replacement Customer by

notifying such Replacement Customer by registered letter, return

receipt requested, that it has five Days from receipt of such

letter to pay the amount due including any applicable interest

calculated in accordance with Section 154.501(d) of the

Commission's regulations. In addition, Saltville shall provide a

notice to the Replacement Customer's Releasing Customer in

accordance with the provisions of Section 4.15 of these General

Terms and Conditions. For releases that become effective on or

after July 30, 2008, the rate paid by a Replacement Customer in

any capacity release transaction with a term of one (1) year or

less which is not subject to the maximum rate cap will be deemed

to be a final rate and is not subject to refund if the effective

date of the proposed release is on or before one (1) year from the

date on which Saltville is notified of the release.

 

4.11 Rights and Obligations of the Parties.

 

The service agreement between the Releasing Customer and Saltville

shall remain in full force and effect with the Releasing Customer

to receive a credit to its invoice as described in Section 4.10

above. If the Replacement Customer fails to pay all or part of

the amounts credited to the Releasing Customer after the five day

notification period specified in Section 4.10, Saltville shall

reverse the credit and bill the Releasing Customer for such past

due amounts, plus applicable interest calculated in accordance

with Section 154.501(d) of the Commission's regulations. Once the

Replacement Customer is awarded the capacity and is provided with

an Addendum to the Capacity Release Umbrella Agreement, the

Replacement Customer becomes an existing Customer with the same

rights and obligations as any other existing Customer on

Saltville's system and is subject to the applicable provisions of

Saltville's FERC Gas Tariff, including but not limited to

Saltville's billing and payment and operational provisions. The

Replacement Customer may also release capacity pursuant to this

section, and in such event and for such purposes, shall be

considered the Releasing Customer, subject to the re-release

rights specified by Releasing Customer pursuant to Section 4.1(s)

above.
