GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

13. BILLING AND PAYMENT

 

13.1 Billing:

 

On or before the ninth (9th) business day of each calendar month, Southern LNG shall render to

Customer by electronic transmission a statement of the Reservation Charges for service for the

preceding month and the amount due for transportation services rendered in the preceding month,

which shall include any necessary adjustments, including capacity release, to the Reservation

Charges. Rendered is defined as time-stamped and delivered to the site designated by Southern

LNG on SoNet Premier or delivered to Customer by the U.S. Postal Service, a nationally

reputable courier service, or electronically through e-mail. Southern LNG shall provide to

Customer notice electronically when Customer's invoice is available on SoNet Premier. The

invoice will be deemed rendered once Southern LNG sends such notice of invoice availability.

Prior to rendering an invoice to Customer, Southern LNG shall offset the invoice by all amounts

owed by Southern LNG to the Customer for that month; provided, however, that this offset shall

not affect disputed amounts.

 

13.2 Payment:

 

Billing statement shall be deemed to be received by each Customer on the date of the postmark,

timestamp or electronic delivery of the notice rendered by Southern LNG. Customer shall make

payment to Southern LNG for the Reservation Charge levied and for the services performed or

charges levied hereunder by electronic bank transfer (i.e. wire transfer, ACH transfer or other

mutually acceptable transfer method), at such address as Southern LNG may hereafter designate,

no later than ten (10) days after the Customer's receipt thereof. All payments made by

Customer shall include Southern LNG's invoice number(s) for purposes of matching the payment to

the invoice.

 

13.3 Invoice Disputes and Interest on Unpaid Amounts:

 

If Customer disputes, in good faith, the amount of any invoice from Southern LNG, it shall

provide a description and supporting documentation of its position and timely submit payment of

the amount it states is due to Southern LNG along with remittance detail. In the event

Customer pays such invoice through a wire transfer of funds, then Customer shall provide

Southern LNG with the remittance detail in writing within two days of payment. Southern LNG

shall apply such payment in accordance with Customer's documentation. Customer agrees that

Southern LNG's acceptance of a partial payment does not waive Southern LNG's right to full

payment after resolution of the disputed invoice in the future.
