and its fuel retention mechanism, including the allocation percentages

and methodologies that underlie the fuel retention percentages, shall

to Rate Schedule GSS, ISS, and MCS(balancing) ("storage

customers") and 5.2895 MMDt to Rate Schedule FT, FTNN, IT, and

file a report detailing the actual quantities collected under the

Amortization Adder and any difference between the actual quantities

retained and the quantities allocated for collection from storage

customers and/or transportation customers, as appropriate. If the

report shows that Pipeline over collected the Amortization Adder

quantities, Pipeline shall make refunds to the affected customers by

crediting their invoices within 30 days of the filing of the report by

valuing the excess quantity collected using the Valuation Method

defined in Section 15.5.E of these General Terms.
