GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

19. BILLING AND PAYMENT (continued)

 

19.4 Billing Error. If an error is discovered in any billing, such

error shall be adjusted within thirty (30) days of the

determination thereof, provided that the claim shall have been

made in writing.

 

(a) NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.14 states: Measurement data

corrections shall be processed within six (6) months of the

production month with a three-month rebuttal period.

 

(b) NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.26 states: The time limitation for

disputes of allocations shall be six (6) months from the

date of the initial month-end allocation with a three-month

rebuttal period.

 

(c) NAESB WGQ Standard 3.3.15 states: Prior period adjustment

time limits shall be six (6) months from the date of the

initial transportation invoice with a three-month rebuttal

period, excluding government-required changes.

 

These three standards shall not apply in the case of deliberate

omission or misrepresentation or mutual mistake of fact. Parties'

other statutory or contractual rights shall not otherwise be

diminished by these standards.

 

19.5 Billing Disputes. If a dispute arises as to the amount payable in

any invoice rendered hereunder, Customer shall nevertheless pay

when due the amount not in dispute under such invoice and shall

submit to Steckman Ridge a written explanation of the dispute and

any available supporting documentation. Such documentation shall

be provided to Steckman Ridge at the time that the payment is due.

Such payment shall not be deemed to be a waiver of the right by

Customer to recoup any overpayment, nor shall acceptance of any

payment be deemed to be a waiver of the right by Customer to

recoup any overpayment, nor shall acceptance of any payment be

deemed to be a waiver by Steckman Ridge of any underpayment. The

parties shall then cooperate in good faith to resolve such dispute

as expeditiously as possible, and the portion, if any, of such

disputed amount eventually determined to be due shall bear

interest at the rate specified in this Section 19.5 from the

original due date until the date actually paid. In the event

Customer fails to forward the entire undisputed amount due to

Steckman Ridge when same is due, interest on the unpaid portion

shall accrue 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 from the date such payment is due until the same is paid. If

Customer's failure to pay the undisputed portion of any invoice

rendered hereunder continues beyond thirty (30) days after the due

date of such invoice, then Steckman Ridge, in addition to all

other legal remedies available to it, shall have the right and

option to suspend further deliveries of Gas until such default

shall have been cured. If Customer's failure to pay the

undisputed portion of any invoice rendered hereunder continues

beyond sixty (60) days after the due date of such invoice, then

Steckman Ridge, in addition to all other legal remedies available

to it, shall have the right and option to terminate service

hereunder.
