Algonquin and the Operator will agree in the Operational Balancing Agreement on

necessary measurement and accounting procedures. Algonquin shall post on its Internet

Web Site those Points of Receipt and Points of Delivery which are subject to an

Operational Balancing Agreement. Algonquin will also provide to any party upon request

a copy of any executed Operational Balancing Agreement. A form of Operational

Balancing Agreement is contained among the forms of service agreements contained in

this tariff.


30.3 Prerequisites to Execution. It is Algonquin's intent to negotiate and execute

Operational Balancing Agreements on a non-discriminatory basis with any Operator.

However, Algonquin shall have no obligation to negotiate and execute Operational

Balancing Agreements with any Operator that:


(a) is not creditworthy as determined pursuant to Section 3 of these General Terms

and Conditions, substituting the term "Operator" for "Customer" for this purpose;


(b) does not maintain a dispatching operation which is staffed on a continuous,

around-the-clock basis;


(c) would cause an increase in the level of regulation which Algonquin is subject to

prior to the execution of the applicable Operational Balancing Agreement; or


(d) does not commit to timely determination of imbalances based on reasonable

available measurement technology.


30.4 Right To Protect System Integrity. Nothing in this Section 30 nor any executed

Operational Balancing Agreement shall limit Algonquin's rights to take action as

may be required to adjust receipts and deliveries under any transportation

agreement to reflect actual experience or to alleviate conditions which threaten

the integrity of Algonquin's pipeline system, including maintenance of service to

higher priority Customers or services.
