15. PERIODIC RATE ADJUSTMENTS

 

Periodically rates and charges under Pipeline's FERC Gas Tariff shall be adjusted to reflect

changes in Pipeline's expenditures for electric power, research and development, the Gas

Research Institute, the Annual Charge Adjustment and the Applicable Shrinkage Adjustment.

Such expenditures shall include both expenditures chargeable to operations as well as

expenditures includable in rate base. Pipeline and Customer recognize that Pipeline will

from time to time experience changes in costs related to providing service under this FERC

Gas Tariff, including, but not limited to, changes in the cost of labor, benefits, materials

and supplies, taxes, required rate of return, costs associated with the resolution of past

disputes or outstanding uncertainties concerning amounts owed by Pipeline or Customer or

attributable to Pipeline or Customer, and costs generated by decisions of the Commission, the

courts or by an arbitration panel or other body having jurisdiction over the Pipeline.

Pipeline hereby notifies Customers that it may be appropriate, equitable and consistent with

cost responsibility to allocate such costs among Customers based on or taking into account

past period factors, such as contract demand levels, purchases or other factors related to a

prior period of time. Pipeline hereby notifies Customers that Pipeline shall have the right

from time to time to make rate change filings which may include such costs and utilize an

allocation methodology based in whole or in part on factors related to past periods.

Customer shall have the right to intervene and protest any such filing.
