Where any Customer has scheduled gas under multiple Service

Agreements at a single point, Equitrans will allocate quantities to

each service in the following sequence as applicable:


(i) The quantity of gas scheduled for delivery by the

Customer under the Customer's other Firm Service



(ii) The quantity of gas scheduled for delivery by the

Customer under the Customer's No-Notice Service

Agreement; and


(iii) The quantity of gas scheduled for delivery under the

Customer's Interruptible Service Agreements.


12.7 Resolution of Imbalances. If a Customer incurs either an

overage or an underage in takes from Equitrans due to a

failure to deliver to Equitrans or receive from Equitrans the

quantity of gas which it is required to receive or deliver,

penalties may be applied as described in this Section. If a

Customer has more than one Service Agreement with Equitrans,

and it is not otherwise determinable under which Service

Agreement the imbalance occurred, all imbalances will be

applied to the Service Agreement which is last in the

determination of deliveries under Section 12.6.

Customer to balance its receipts and deliveries on a

monthly basis. Equitrans will notify the Customer

during the month of the existence of imbalances under any

Service Agreement which exceeds the allowable tolerance of

adjust its nominations to bring its imbalance within the 4%

tolerance by the end of the month. A Customer may avoid the

assessment of monthly imbalance penalties by adjusting its

service nominations during the month to reduce imbalances to

within acceptable tolerance levels as described herein.

Imbalances which are not corrected by the end of the month

will be eliminated after the close of the month in accordance

with the following procedures:


(i) Equitrans will notify Customers of any imbalance

between its receipts and deliveries under any Service
