GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

8. IMBALANCE RESOLUTION PROCEDURES

 

It is the Cash-out Party's responsibility to provide accurate and timely nominations of

quantities proposed to be received and delivered by Pipeline under all of Cash-out Party's service

agreements; to maintain each day as nearly as practicable equality between quantities actually

taken under each service agreement and scheduled quantities under each service agreement; and to

maintain a concurrent balance between receipts and deliveries under each of Cash-out Party's

service agreements.

 

8.1 Resolution of Imbalances. During the month, Cash-out Party may use any or all of

Pipeline's Imbalance Management Services, as defined in Section 1.14A of the General

Terms and Conditions, to reduce or eliminate the cash-out liability for imbalances. In

addition, Cash-out Party may trade an imbalance with another Cash-out Party, in

accordance with Section 8.3 below, until the close of the seventeenth business day

after the end of the month during which the imbalance occurred. Any imbalance(s) not

resolved via any of the Imbalance Management Services will be resolved pursuant to

Sections 8.4 and 8.5 herein.

 

8.2 Imbalance Management Services. The Imbalance Management Services offered by Pipeline

are identified in Section 1.14A of the General Terms and Conditions. Details of each

service are included in the Rate Schedule and Form of Service Agreement contained in

this tariff, or in this Section 8.

 

8.3 Imbalance Trading. Imbalance Trading is available for any imbalance that would

otherwise be resolved pursuant to Section 3 of Rate Schedule TABS-1, Section 2 of Rate

Schedule MBA, or Sections 8.4 and 8.5 below. Pipeline shall allow Cash-out Parties to

trade imbalances within the same Operational Impact Area, or between Operational Impact

Areas, as defined in Section 1.29A of the General Terms and Conditions, if the two

Cash-out Parties' imbalances are offsetting balances for the month, such that the net

imbalance for each Cash-out Party after the completion of the trade would be reduced to

a quantity closer to zero. A Cash-out Party may trade any imbalance with another Cash-

out Party, provided that the trade shall not result in a transportation path which

crosses a Posted Point of Restriction, as defined in Section 1.32A of the General Terms

and Conditions, for that month. The Cash-out Party with an imbalance resulting from

receipts from Cash-out Party in excess of deliveries by Pipeline will reimburse

Pipeline for any difference in transportation revenues that may result from such

trading.

 

Pipeline will provide the ability to post and trade imbalances at any time during the

gas flow month, and until the close of the seventeenth Business Day after the end of

the month during which the imbalances occurred. To facilitate the trading process,

Pipeline will, upon receipt of Cash-out Party's authorization, post a Cash-out Party's

imbalance quantity on its Web site. Authorizations to Post Imbalances that are

received by Pipeline by 11:45 a.m. will be effective by 8:00 a.m. the next business day

(central clock time). An Authorization to Post Imbalances will remain in effect until

cancelled by the Cash-out Party. Imbalances previously authorized for posting will be

posted as they become available, but no later than the ninth business day of the month;

however, Pipeline will not be required to post zero imbalances. The information posted

will identify the Cash-out Party, the Operational Impact Area and the gas flow month

applicable to the posted imbalance quantity. For purposes of determining the imbalance

quantity that will be posted, all imbalances within an Operational Impact Area due

Cash-out Party under all of Cash-out Party's contracts and all imbalances in that

Operational Impact Area due Pipeline under all of Cash-out Party's contracts shall be

summed together to yield a single net imbalance quantity for the Cash-out Party in that

Operational Impact Area for the month. Pipeline will provide to all Customers the

ability to view, and upon request, download posted imbalance information.
