GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

16. IMBALANCE MANAGEMENT

 

16.1 NAESB WGQ Standards. The following NAESB WGQ Standards (Version

1.8, September 30, 2006) are hereby incorporated by reference:

2.3.45 through 2.3.50.

 

16.2 Balancing of Transportation Quantities.

 

(a) A Shipper must maintain a monthly balance between net

receipts (less FLUF Gas in accordance with Section 14 of the

General Terms and Conditions) and deliveries within a two

percent (2%) imbalance tolerance.

 

(b) Transporter will make monthly imbalance information

available to the Shipper on or before the ninth (9th)

Business Day of each Month following the Month during which

Gas was transported. An imbalance statement will be

tendered to Shipper with Shipper's monthly bill issued

according to Section 5 of the General Terms and Conditions.

 

(c) At the end of each calendar Month in which Shipper's net

receipts (less FLUF Gas) do not equal deliveries on a Dth

basis, the following procedures will apply:

 

(i) Shipper's imbalances under each Service Agreement will

be netted together for monthly imbalance calculations.

 

(ii) Shippers will have through the last Day of the current

calendar month to remedy any imbalance exceeding the

imbalance tolerance. To remedy an imbalance, Shipper

will have the ability to trade imbalances pursuant to

Section 16.3 herein.

 

(iii) Subject to available transportation capacity,

operational constraints and approval by Transporter

during the remainder of the Month after notification

of its monthly imbalance, a Shipper may eliminate its

prior Month imbalance through either a physical

payback or take of Gas in lieu of or in connection

with imbalance trading. Nominations to reduce the

prior Month imbalance must be designated for that

purpose. Transporter will consider each Shipper's

request to exercise its option under this Section

16.2(c)(iii) and will, on a nondiscriminatory basis,

and subject to prudent operational practices, honor

the request.

 

(iv) If a Shipper cannot cure an imbalance due to force

majeure, Transporter will extend the time period for

the Shipper to resolve such imbalance for a period

equal to the length of the force majeure event.

 

(v) To the extent a Receiving Pipeline requires

Transporter to cashout an imbalance attributable to

shipments made for the account of Shipper, Shipper

will reimburse Transporter the amount of such cashout

in accordance with Section 5 of the General Terms and

Conditions.
