Transporter will match the Shipper's Nomination with the related

Confirmations from the upstream and downstream Interconnecting

Parties. Transporter will treat the lesser of the Nomination and

6.2. To the extent that Confirmations are received by

Transporter in time to complete the Confirmation Balancing

process at or prior to the Confirmation deadline, no scheduled

imbalance will be created for the Shipper's Nominated

transaction. A Shipper may elect to exempt its Nominations from

the confirmation balancing process by notifying Transporter prior

to the deadline for the Timely Nomination Cycle for the effective

day of the exemption. A Shipper's confirmation balancing

election will remain in effect until changed by the Shipper.

However, a Shipper's confirmation balancing exemption may be

suspended when imbalance activity adversely affects Transporter's

ability to provide service to others, adversely affects safe

operations of Transporter's system and/or a Strained Operating

Condition or Critical Condition is in effect.

balancing process cannot be supported due to operational reasons,

Transporter shall post a notice on its EBB prior to the Evening
