GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
14. ALLOCATION AND IMBALANCES (Cont'd.)
14.8 Transportation Balancing Fee and Imbalance Penalties
(a) For any month that a Shipper's Cumulative Monthly Imbalance
exceeds one MITL, a Transportation Balancing Fee will be
charged on the amount in excess of this tolerance. This fee
per Dth shall be equal to (i) one-twelfth (1/12) the maximum
ISS Injection Charge for positive imbalances or (ii) 365/12
times the maximum IAS usage charge for negative imbalances,
and in either case shall apply regardless of the imbalance
resolution method elected by Shipper under Section 14.9 below.
If the Daily Shipper Imbalance is positive and exceeds one
DITL during any day that an Injection Restriction Advisory (as
defined below) is in effect, the Shipper will be charged an
Imbalance Penalty equal to the maximum ISS Injection Charge.
If the Daily Shipper Imbalance is negative and exceeds one
DITL during any day that a Cold Weather Advisory (as defined
below) is in effect, the Shipper will be charged an Imbalance
Penalty equal to 365 times the maximum IAS usage charge.
For purposes of this Section 14.8, Transporter may issue a
Cold Weather Advisory on any day that the mean temperature
forecast by Transporter's contracted weather service, for
either Erie, Pennsylvania or Buffalo, New York is at or below
10 Degrees Fahrenheit. Transporter may issue an Injection
Restriction Advisory on any day that the "Operationally
Available Quantity" for Transporter's Excess Injection into
Storage, as posted on the "Operationally Available Capacity"
page of Transporter's Web Site is zero (0).
The Transportation Balancing Fee and Imbalance Penalty will be
included in Shipper's regular bill for transportation
services, and will be subject to all payment and collection
requirements applicable to that bill.
(b) Crediting of Penalties and Certain Fees in Excess of Costs
Subsequent to each Annual Billing Period, Transporter shall
compare the Creditable Penalties, as defined below,
attributable to such period, with the Incremental Costs, as
defined below, attributable to such period. If such Creditable
Penalties exceed such Incremental Costs, Transporter shall
credit the difference (hereinafter "Net Creditable Penalties")
to its EFT, FT, FST and FT-S shippers in accordance with the
