the extent necessary to verify the accuracy of any statement, chart, or

computation made under or pursuant to the provisions of this tariff.


15.5 Payment method and due date: Customer shall make payment to Texas Gas by

electronic funds transfer to a depository designated by Texas Gas, unless

Customer, whose total monthly invoices are less than $100,000, elects to make

payment by check. All payments are due ten (10) calendar days after the

invoice is rendered except when such day is a Saturday, Sunday, or bank

holiday, in which case payment is due the following business day. Payment

and provide documentation identifying basis for the dispute.


15.6 Penalty for late payment: Should Customer fail to pay all or a portion of any

invoice when such amount is due, as herein provided, Customer shall pay Texas

Gas interest. Interest on the unpaid portion of the invoice shall be computed

by multiplying (a) the unpaid portion of the invoice by (b) the ratio of the

number of days from the due date to the date of actual payment to 365, by (c)

the current rate of interest on pipeline refunds established by Commission

regulations. The interest charge provided for by this Section 15.6 shall be
