15. INVOICES AND PAYMENTS (continued)

 

a Service Agreement, Pipeline shall serve the Commission

and Customer with written notice of the termination.

 

15.4 If Customer in good faith shall dispute in writing the

amount of any such invoice or parts thereof, Customer shall

pay to Pipeline such amounts as it concedes to be correct

and shall provide documentation identifying the basis for

the dispute. In the event that Customer makes such payment

and provides such documentation, and at any time thereafter

within thirty (30) Days of demand made by Pipeline

furnishes a good and sufficient surety bond guaranteeing

payment to Pipeline of the amount ultimately found due upon

such invoices after a final determination, which may be

reached either by agreement or judgment of the courts as

may be the case, then Pipeline shall not be entitled to

suspend further service unless and until default be made in

the conditions of such bond. If resolution of the dispute

is in favor of Customer and the Customer furnished a surety

bond instead of paying the disputed amount, then Pipeline

shall reimburse Customer for the cost of securing that

surety bond. No payment by Customer of the amount of a

disputed invoice shall prejudice the right of Customer to

claim an adjustment of the disputed invoice, subject to

Section 15.5 herein.
