procedures specifically agreed to by Transporter and the delivery

point(s), as set forth in the Balancing Agreement governing the point

provided, however, Transporter will not be required to enter into

arrangements (a) with a party if that party does not meet Transporter's

creditworthiness provisions set forth in Article XXV of the General Terms

Transporter, prior to the commencement of the day, of a Predetermined

Allocation Methodology ("PDA") to be utilized in allocating scheduled

receipts or deliveries among all parties and scheduling services at such

points; provided that such methodology must allocate flows based on

scheduled quantities. Transporter shall confirm receipt of the PDA within

15 minutes. Confirmation of receipt of PDAs transmitted via EDI shall be

Transporter's PDA quick response via EDI. Confirmation of receipt of PDAs

transmitted via facsimile shall be the sending party's facsimile

transmission report. In the absence of receipt of a PDA, Transporter

proportion to the Scheduled Quantities.

The time limitation for disputes of allocations should be 6 months from

or misrepresentation or mutual mistake of fact. Parties' other statutory

or contractual rights shall not otherwise be diminished by this standard.
