The Transportation Balancing Fee will be included in Shipper's

regular bill for transportation services, and will be subject to all

payment and collection requirements applicable to that bill. All

Transportation Balancing Fees assessed by Transporter to any Shipper

who is an affiliate of Transporter during any quarter of a calendar

year shall be directly refunded to each Shipper under Rate Schedule FT

or EFT who was not assessed a Transportation Balancing Fee during that

quarter (a "Balanced Shipper"), based on each Balanced Shipper's MDTQ

under Rate Schedules FT and EFT as a percentage of the total such

MDTQs of all Balanced Shippers. Such refunds shall be made within 45

days of the close of each quarter, and may be done by a credit against

any amounts due from that Shipper.


To avoid collection of more than one Transportation Balancing Fee

on a single month's imbalance, Transporter shall apply the following

principles, in a nondiscriminatory manner, in computing the Transpor-

tation Balancing Fee:


(a) The Transportation Balancing Fee shall be applicable to a Shipper

for an activity month only if that Shipper has made a binding

election, pursuant to Section 13.9 hereof, to resolve imbalances

"in kind."


(b) The Transportation Balancing Fee shall be calculated only on the

amount by which the current Monthly Shipper Imbalance worsens

that Shipper's Cumulative Monthly Imbalance.


(c) Monthly Imbalances which correct Cumulative Monthly Imbalances in

part or in full, or which do not cause the Cumulative Monthly

Imbalance to exceed one MITL, shall not result in any Transpor-

tation Balancing Fee;
