Original Sheet No. 2701 Original Sheet No. 2701 GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS Section 15 (Cont'd) 15.7 In the event an error is discovered in the measured quantities, allocated quantities, or the rate billed in any statement rendered by Pipeline, such error shall be adjusted on the next invoice due to the Customer, provided that claim therefore shall have been made within six (6) months from the date of such statement, with a three-month rebuttal period. Such time limits shall not apply in the case of government-required rate changes, deliberate omission or misrepresentation, or mutual mistake of fact. Parties' other statutory or contractual rights will not otherwise be diminished by this standard. 15.8 Bona fide disputes: In the event of a bona fide dispute between the parties concerning the amount of the unpaid invoice, Texas Gas shall not suspend service under the notification procedure outlined in Section 15.9 when Customer acts in a timely manner to provide additional information and security for Texas Gas in accordance with the following procedures: (a) Identify dispute: Within ten (10) calendar days after the due date of any payment, Customer shall notify their Texas Gas Customer Service Representative by written correspondence of the amount billed that is in bona fide dispute, as previously indicated on the remittance statement required by Section 15.4, and of all reasons and documentation why Customer believes full payment is not appropriate; and (b) Payment security: Within thirty (30) days after the due date of any payment, Customer shall either pay in full the total amount billed without prejudice to Customer's rights to dispute all or part of said amount and subject to return of the disputed amount so identified, with interest calculated in accordance with Section 15.6, after resolution of that dispute in favor of Customer, or pay the undisputed portion of the amount billed in full and furnish good and sufficient surety bond, guaranteeing payment to Texas Gas of all amounts ultimately found due after resolution of the dispute, including interest charges which accrue until resolution of the dispute which may be reached either by agreement or judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. If Customer furnishes good and sufficient surety bond and amounts are ultimately not due to Texas Gas, then Texas Gas will bear any unrecovered surety bond costs incurred by the Customer. 15.9 Remedies for non-payment: Should Customer fail to pay all of the amount of any invoice when such amount is due, as herein provided, subject to requirements of regulatory rights and remedies available to Texas Gas under the law and the executed Service Agreement, Texas Gas shall have the right to suspend service without obtaining additional prior approval from the Commission if any amount billed to Customer remains unpaid for more than thirty (30) days after the due date thereof; provided, however, prior to suspension Texas Gas shall follow these notification procedures:
