8.4 Shipper Compliance: A Shipper must comply with an OFO within the
time period set forth therein unless the Shipper is able to
demonstrate that such compliance is prevented due to a force
majeure event as defined in Article 15 of these General Terms and
Conditions; provided that the Shipper shall make a good faith
effort to comply with any such OFO, including seeking waivers of
any contractual limits with third parties or modifications of
operating conditions on third party systems. Shipper shall notify
Transporter immediately if it believes that it is excused from
compliance with the OFO for any of the above stated reasons, and
shall provide Transporter with documentation sufficient to support
its basis for non-compliance.
8.5 Penalties: If a Shipper fails to comply with an OFO, Transporter
may access a penalty of $10.00 per dth for any volume of gas by
which Shipper deviated from the requirements of the OFO. A Shipper
shall not incur any charges or penalties if such charges or
penalties would not have been incurred but for Shipper's
compliance with an OFO. A Shipper shall not incur any penalties if
the OFO was necessitated exclusively by Transporter's negligence
or willful misconduct.
8.6 OFO Penalty Crediting Mechanism: Transporter shall credit any "OFO
Penalty Revenues" as defined herein to "Non-Offending Shippers."
(a) The term "OFO Penalty Revenues" shall mean penalty amounts
assessed and actually collected, net of Transporter's costs,
during each month pursuant to Section 8 of this Tariff.
(b) The term "Non-Offending Shippers" shall mean Shippers that
were not assessed an OFO penalty during a given month
pursuant to Section 8 of this Tariff.
(c) At the end of each month, Transporter shall calculate the
amount of Penalty Revenues, if any. Transporter shall then
allocate Penalty Revenues for that month to the Non-
Offending Shippers based on their actual monthly throughput
for that month under their respective service agreements.
Transporter shall credit the bills of Non-Penalized Shippers
that are the original capacity holders for such allocated
amounts within sixty (60) days of the end of the month.
8.7 Liability of Transporter: Transporter shall not be liable for any
costs incurred by any Shipper in complying with an OFO.
Transporter shall not be responsible for any damages that result
from any interruption in Shipper's service that is a result of a
Shipper's failure to comply promptly and fully with an OFO, and
the non-complying Shipper shall indemnify Transporter against any
claims of responsibility.
