received from Shipper by Transporter at the Point of Receipt, plus or

minus any attributable line losses or unaccounted-for gas.


The specific quantity in MMBtu of gas to be redelivered by Transporter to

Shipper or for Shipper's account (herein referred to as Shipper's

"Redelivery Quantity") shall be determined each month as the product of

(a) and (b) below:


(a) The volume of gas in MMBtu received by Transporter from Shipper at

the Point of Receipt for transportation during the month.


(b) A fraction, the numerator of which is the measured volume in MMBtu

of all gas delivered by Transporter from its pipeline during the

month, and the denominator of which is the measured volume in MMBtu

of all gas received by Transporter during the month.


Scheduling on a daily basis shall reflect the general procedures

identified above. The timing for reporting daily operational allocations

after the gas has flowed is within one business day after the end of the

gas day. If the best available data for reporting daily operational

allocations is the scheduled quantity, that quantity should be used for

the daily operational allocation. Precise balancing shall be on a monthly

basis. Any imbalances during a particular month shall be kept to the

minimum permitted by operating conditions and balanced out as soon as

practicable. Imbalance statements should be generated at the same time or

prior to the generation of the transportation invoice. The imbalance

statement should be rendered prior to or with the invoice, and the

transportation invoice should be prepared on or before the 9th business

day after the end of the production month. Rendered is defined as

postmarked, time-stamped, and delivered to the designated site.


Delivery point allocations should be performed at the lowest level of

detail provided by nominations. The determination of deliveries

applicable to Shipper shall be made in accordance with the thermal

balancing provisions above unless a PDA in accordance with the PDA

provision below or an operating arrangement satisfactory to Shipper,

Transporter and any third party transporting to or from Transporter's

system is submitted. The responsibility for calculation and reporting of

allocated quantities should rest with the party responsible for accepting

NAESB allocation types. The party receiving nominations should provide

allocation statements. The upstream or downstream party providing the

point confirmation should submit the pre-determined allocation to the

allocating party after or during confirmation and before the start of the

gas day. To the extent there is no OBA or PDA, Transporter shall allocate

deliveries pro rata based on confirmed quantities. As a minimum,

allocations should be provided by both contract and location. The types

of allocation methodologies is a list from
