average of the weekly References Spot Prices applicable to the Month of gas

flow pursuant to GT&Cs Section 12.7.


12.3 Netting. For each Month, all cumulative Transportation Imbalances will

be netted among each firm and/or interruptible transportation agreement under

which the Shipper, the Imbalance Agent and the billable party coincide.


12.4 Trading. Trading of the previous Month’s netted imbalances will be

allowed between Imbalance Agents (or the Shipper if no Imbalance Agent exists)

from the 1st calendar day until the end of the 17th Business Day following the

end of the Month. Trading will be allowed when the resulting trade will

reduce the imbalances for each Shipper or their Imbalance Agent. There will

GT&Cs Section 6) during the Month to correct imbalances. Third parties may

offer imbalance management services to Shippers on Pipeline’s system.

Pipeline’s ability to receive or deliver imbalance quantities shall be

dependent upon Pipeline’s physical operations, and Pipeline is under no

obligation to allow receipt or delivery of such quantities for resolution of

imbalances if it determines, in its sole opinion, such activity would

jeopardize pipeline operations.
