15.1 Pipeline shall bill Customer on or before the 10th Day of each

preceding Month according to the measurement, computations and

charges provided in this Tariff. Such bill shall be delivered to

Customer or its agent by posting Customer's final bill on

if an e-mail address has been designated by Customer,

contemporaneously with the posting of the final bill on Pipeline's

mail address information provided to Pipeline as necessary.

Customer may designate an agent to receive invoices and may

designate such agent to receive the e-mail notifications of the

availability of Customer's final bill on Pipeline's LINK® System.

If actual quantities are unavailable in time to prepare the

billing, such charges shall be based on estimated quantities and

Customer so that Pipeline will receive the funds no later than ten

the payment is being remitted, in which case payment is due the

following Business Day (hereinafter called "Due Date"). All

such Due Date until the date of payment at the same rate of

interest and in the same manner as prescribed for pipeline refunds

as set forth in Section 154.501(d) of the Commission's Regulations

under the Natural Gas Act. If such failure to pay continues for

of the delinquency. In the event payment is not received within

twenty (20) Days of the first delinquency notice, Pipeline will

provide a second delinquency notice requesting payment within five
