GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

13. BILLING AND PAYMENTS (Continued)

 

13.5 Billing Disputes. If Customer withholds payment of any disputed amount

as authorized herein, Customer shall within ten (10) Days after the due

date of the disputed invoice submit to Operator a written explanation of

the dispute and any available supporting documentation. 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

stated in Section 13.4 above from the original due date until the date

actually paid.

 

13.6 Right to Audit. Both Operator and Customer shall have the right at their

own expense to examine and audit at any reasonable time the books,

records (including measurement, billing and payment) and charts of the

other to the extent necessary to verify the accuracy of any Schedules or

charges made under or pursuant to any of the provisions of Customer's

Service Agreement. Upon request, Customer shall also make available to

Operator for audit purposes and relevant records of Transporters to

which Customer has access. A formal audit of accounts shall not be made

more often than once each Contract Year. Any inaccuracy will be promptly

corrected when discovered; provided, however, that neither Operator nor

Customer shall be required to maintain books, records or charts for a

period of more than two (2) Contract Years following the end of the

Contract Year to which they are applicable. Neither Operator nor

Customer shall have any right to question or contest any charge or

credit if the matter is not called to the attention of the other in

writing within two (2) Contract Years after the end of the Contract Year

in question.

 

13.7 Taxes. If at any time Operator is required to remit any taxes assessed

on the gas pursuant to Customer's Service Agreement, then Operator shall

have the right to collect from Customer such taxes, including penalties

and interest. Customer agrees to reimburse Operator for the taxes

assessed on the gas, including any penalties and interest, within

fifteen (15) Days of the date of invoice from Operator. Customer shall

furnish Operator information, satisfactory to Operator, to enable

Operator to comply with any reports required by state or federal

government and agencies. Customer recognizes that Operator may be

required to file federal and state tax returns, and Customer agrees to

furnish Operator with adequate information pertaining to the taxation on

the gas and Customer shall coordinate such filings with Operator.
