11. PAYMENTS (continued)


11.3Disputed Bills. If Customer in good faith shall dispute the

amount of any bill or parts thereof and shall pay to KLNG such

amounts as it concedes to be correct, and at any time thereafter

within thirty days of a demand made by KLNG shall furnish a good

and sufficient surety bond guaranteeing payment, which may be

reached either by agreement or judgment of the courts as may be

the case, of the amount ultimately found due upon such bills

after a final determination, then KLNG shall not be entitled to

suspend further receipt, storage, or delivery of gas unless and

until default be made in the conditions of such bond. Customer

shall pay the portion of the bill not in dispute and shall

provide documentation identifying the basis for the dispute. No

payment by Customer of the amount of a disputed bill shall

prejudice the right of Customer to claim an adjustment of the

disputed bill. Customer shall pay interest on disputed portions

of a bill for which Customer has withheld payment, and which

ultimately is found due, at the rate specified in the first

sentence of Subsection 11.2 above.


11.4Extension of Time. If presentation of bills by KLNG is delayed

after the seventh day of the month, then the time of payment

shall be extended accordingly unless Customer is responsible for

such delay.


11.5Billing Errors. In the event an error is discovered in the

amount billed in any statement rendered by KLNG, such error shall

be adjusted within thirty days of the determination thereof,

provided that claim therefor shall have been made in writing.
