10.2 Operational Balancing Agreements


VGS is willing to negotiate and execute an

Operational Balancing Agreement (OBA) with any Operator for

the purpose of minimizing operational imbalances or other

matters with respect to the receipt of gas into or the

delivery of gas from VGS' System. The OBA shall specify the

gas custody transfer procedures to be followed by VGS and

the Operator for the confirmation of nominated quantities

and allocation of quantities of gas measured at the point(s)

of interconnection between VGS and the Operator. The OBA

will provide that any variance between quantities of gas

measured and confirmed nominations for any day shall be

promptly resolved in-kind. To facilitate the determination

of variances on a timely basis, VGS and the Operator will

agree upon necessary measurement, allocation and accounting

procedures and set forth such procedures in the OBA. VGS

will post on its Internet Home Page the Receipt Points and

Delivery Points where an OBA governs the allocation of

quantities of gas measured.
