GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

10. TRANSPORTATION BALANCING

 

10.1 Customers shall use their best efforts to avoid delivering

or receiving quantities of gas which deviate from the quantities of gas

scheduled by MRT for transportation and redelivery hereunder, and shall

keep MRT advised of any material deviations from the quantities

scheduled. Each Customer shall have the responsibility to maintain a

concurrent balance between receipts and deliveries, adjusted for

appropriate fuel reimbursement, based upon the best information

available to the Customer. MRT will provide to its Customers through

its electronic communication system gas flow information each day and

Customers will be able to access such information. MRT shall also make

available to each Customer any other information regarding daily

receipts and daily deliveries for Customer's account which MRT

possesses.

 

10.2 If deliveries by MRT are greater or less than the

corresponding receipts of gas by MRT for transportation, less any gas

retained for fuel reimbursement, the imbalance shall be adjusted or

corrected in accordance with the terms of this section in addition to

any other charges or remedies to which MRT may be entitled.

 

10.3 Receipt Variance Penalty

 

(a) For purposes of this section, a "Receipt Variance

Period" is defined as a period of seven consecutive days during a

month.

 

(b) If the actual, or if unavailable the estimated,

quantity of gas received by MRT from a Customer or Pool Operator

within a zone pursuant to a transportation service agreement or

pooling agreement varies, either positively or negatively, by the

greater of 10% or 50 MMBtu from the quantity scheduled during a

Receipt Variance Period, then MRT may notify the Customer or Pool

Operator in writing of a required make up amount. The required

make up amount for each Receipt Variance Period will be no greater

than the quantity which exceeds the above stated tolerance level.

The Customer or Pool Operator is required to make up the required

make up amount within the next five days following the receipt of

notification from MRT.
