following receipt of the bill from Transporter, the amount due for

the preceding month. Shipper shall submit supporting

documentation; transporter receiving payment should apply payment

per supporting documentation provided by the paying party; and if

payment differs from invoiced amount, remittance detail should be

provided with the payment. Shipper shall identify invoice

number(s) on all payments. If an invoice is in dispute, Shipper

shall pay the portion not in dispute and provide documentation

identifying basis for the dispute.

 

6.6 Should Shipper fail to pay all of the amount of any bill as herein

provided when such amount is due, Transporter may charge interest

on the unpaid portion of the bill computed from the due date until

the date of payment at the same rate of interest and in the same

manner as prescribed for pipeline refunds as set forth in Section

154.67(c)(2) of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's

Regulations under the Natural Gas Act. If such failure to pay

continues, Transporter will provide Shipper with a "first notice"

informing Shipper that it has twenty days to pay its bill in full.

If after the expiration of the twenty day period the Shipper has

still not paid the full amount of the bill, Transporter will issue

a "second notice" informing the Shipper (and the FERC) that

service will be suspended in ten (10) days unless the full payment

is made. If after the expiration of the ten-day period the

Shipper has still not paid its bill in full, Transporter will

suspend service due to the non-payment. In addition to any other

remedy it may have under an executed Service Agreement,

Transporter may, after application to and authorization by the

FERC, if such authorization is necessary, terminate the Service

Agreement.

 

6.7 Shipper may dispute the amount of any such bill or parts thereof

due to a good faith allegation of a billing error, made in writing

to Transporter, and pay to Transporter only such amounts as it

concedes to be correct if, within 30 days of a demand made by

Transporter, Shipper furnishes a good and sufficient surety bond,

acceptable to Transporter, guaranteeing payment to Transporter of

the amount ultimately found due upon such bills after a final

determination, which may be reached either by agreement or

judgment of the courts as may be the case. If Shipper furnishes

such a bond, Transporter shall not be entitled to suspend further

delivery of natural gas unless and until default is made in the

conditions of such bond. No payment by Shipper of the amount of a

disputed bill shall prejudice the right of Shipper to claim that

an adjustment of the disputed bill is required.

 

6.8 If it shall be found that at any time Shipper has been overcharged

or undercharged in any form whatsoever under the provisions hereof

and Shipper shall have actually paid the bills containing such

overcharge or undercharge, then within thirty (30) days after the

final determination thereof,
