Firm Transportation Service


by Pipeline from Customer for transportation hereunder,

less any gas retained by Pipeline in providing such

transportation service. Pipeline shall have no

obligation to take receipt of gas on any Day that Customer

fails to take delivery of equivalent quantities of gas

tendered by Pipeline at the Delivery Point(s), and Pipeline

shall have no obligation to deliver gas to Customer on any

Day that Customer fails to deliver equivalent quantities to

Pipeline at the Receipt Point(s); provided, however, that

this Section shall authorize Pipeline to suspend service

only to the extent that Customer's receipts and deliveries

are not equivalent.


7.2 If, despite Customer's obligation to balance as set forth in

Section 7.1 above, Pipeline determines at the end of any

month that deliveries hereunder by Pipeline were greater or

less than the corresponding receipts of gas by Pipeline for

transportation, less any gas retained, Pipeline will notify

Customer via the EBB no later than the 9th Business Day of

the succeeding month of any excess or deficiency in

receipts. Customer may correct such excess or deficiency in

receipts within twenty (20) Days after Customer receives

such EBB notification of the month-end imbalance from

Pipeline. If an imbalance is not (i) corrected within

twenty (20) Days or, to the extent not cured in-kind, (ii)

traded in accordance with Section 40 of the General Terms

and Conditions, or (iii) resolved through any other

imbalance management options offered by Pipeline and others,

then Pipeline will (i) transfer the imbalance to Customer's

balance under its Rate Schedule MCS service agreement or

(ii) if Customer does not have such service agreement in

effect, create an MCS service agreement, and then transfer

such imbalance, and (in either case) assess the maximum rate

for Balancing Service under Rate Schedule MCS for each Day

the imbalance remains on the system beginning on the date

that Customer is notified of the end-of-month imbalance. To

the extent that MCS Balancing Service is not available or

Customer does not qualify for such service, Pipeline shall

have the right to correct an imbalance by: (i) immediately

suspending deliveries to Customer or, if that does not cure

the imbalance, purchasing gas to make up deficiencies in

receipts and charging Customer for the verifiable cost of

such gas; or (ii) immediately suspending receipts from

Customer or, if that does not cure the imbalance, treating

excess receipts as unauthorized gas under Section 29 of the

General Terms and Conditions. Pipeline shall not impose

fees otherwise applicable under this section that result

from in-kind cures and imbalance trades undertaken by

Customer in good faith reliance on monthly imbalance data

that Pipeline has reported in error.


7.3 Customers electing to cure imbalances through in-kind

receipts or deliveries under Section 7.2 of this Rate

Schedule must nominate and schedule any receipts or

deliveries of gas intended to cure imbalances under the

Service Agreement in accordance with Section 11A of the

General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff. Such scheduled

receipts or deliveries of gas shall be deemed to be the last

gas through the meter for purposes of calculating Customer's

monthly bill and the applicability of the imbalance charges

set forth in Section 7.2, above.
