FBS RATE SCHEDULE
FIRM BALANCING SERVICE (Cont'd)
(e) On any Day in which Shipper's unauthorized withdrawals from storage exceed 103 percent of its
applicable MDWQ, as described in Shipper's FBS Service Agreement, Shipper shall pay Transporter a penalty
based on a price per Dth equal to three times the midpoint of the range of prices reported for "Columbia Gas,
Appalachia" as published in Platts Gas Daily price survey for all quantities withdrawn in excess of 103
percent of its MDWQ, provided Transporter shall reduce penalties under this provision to the extent Shipper
may pay penalties under Service Agreements under other Rate Schedules for the same quantities.
(f) If Shipper: (i) violates an operational flow order issued by Transporter to withdraw
quantities; or (ii) carries over quantities beyond the termination of its FBS Service Agreement, any such
quantities automatically shall be forfeited by Shipper to Transporter, free and clear of all liens and
encumbrances. Transporter shall post such forfeited quantities on its EBB as gas available for sale to the
highest bidder within a 24-hour notice period. Such posting may provide as a condition of sale that such gas
be withdrawn from storage within a period of time to be specified in the notice. Upon receipt of payment,
Transporter shall treat the forfeited gas proceeds as Penalty Revenues as defined in Section 19.6 of the
General Terms and Conditions.
(g) All penalties and charges assessed under this Section shall be assessed and paid in addition to
all applicable storage rates and charges under this Rate Schedule, including any overrun charges.
(h) In the event Shipper seeks to avoid any penalty provided for in this Section on the ground that
such charge was incurred because of a force majeure event as defined in Section 15 (Force Majeure) of the
General Terms and Conditions, Shipper shall document such force majeure event to Transporter. Transporter
shall waive penalties to the extent that it determines that the imbalance was caused by a bona fide force
majeure event as defined in said Section 15.
(i) Transporter may waive its right to collect all or any portion of penalties assessed against
Shipper or its right to retain all or any portion of Shipper's gas, provided that any such waiver is granted
in a nondiscriminatory manner.
