bill Customers, and collect from Customers, their

allocated shares of carrying charges on these amounts.

Carrying charges will be computed at the Commission

prescribed interest rate for the period from Pipeline's

payment of its take-or-pay amounts to the upstream

pipeline supplier until the due date on Pipeline's

invoice to Customer billing such carrying charges.


A. Allocation Methodology.


1. Amounts billed to Pipeline by its upstream

pipeline suppliers will be allocated to

Customer in determining Pipeline's surcharge

for billing purposes using the same

allocation methodology, to the extent

possible, that Pipeline's upstream pipeline

supplier utilized to allocate such costs to

its customers. Any refunds received by

Pipeline attributable to the supplier's

take-or-pay charges will be refunded to

Customer in accordance with the flowthrough

provisions of Article II of the RP88-217

Settlement, using the same allocation

methodology as the amount to be refunded was

initially recovered by Pipeline from Customer.

Any refunds due Customer from Pipeline under

the RP88-217 Settlement will be refunded or

credited within 30 days after Pipeline

receives the refund from its pipeline



2. Similarly, any additional take-or-pay charges

to Pipeline from an upstream pipeline under

any dockets in which the upstream pipeline

bills Pipeline for take-or-pay amounts, will

be allocated to Customer using the same

methodology, to the extent possible, as such

additional charges are allocated to Pipeline.
