6. Supply Deficiencies


If Transporter experiences a supply short fall due to the under delivery of supplies to

Transporter's mainline, then (a) if the deficient source is known, Transporter will

curtail the corresponding firm or interruptible transportation market; or (b) if the

deficient sources are undeterminable, then Transporter will localize the smallest

affected area and, at the corresponding delivery point, will curtail interruptible

service first and then firm services in accordance with Section 5 of this Article III;

provided that verifiable receipt point volumes will not be subject to a supply short

fall curtailment.


7. Shipper Imbalances


7.1 Shipper Duty to Control Imbalances - A Shipper receiving any transportation service

from Transporter will use, or will cause any party receiving or delivering

Shipper's gas to use, all reasonable efforts to ensure that receipts and deliveries

of gas are equal to the nominations confirmed by Transporter. Shipper shall also

be responsible to control, and if necessary, adjust receipts and deliveries of gas

to maintain a balance between such receipts, deliveries and confirmed nominations.

To the extent a Shipper is out of balance it will be subject to the daily and

monthly balancing provisions contained in Rate Schedule LMS of Transporter's FERC

Gas Tariff.


7.2 Outstanding Imbalances - Shippers shall remain responsible for imbalances accrued

under their agreements before the effective date of the tariff revisions in Docket

No. RS92-52.


7.3 Unauthorized Delivery Imbalance Charge - Unauthorized deliveries are deliveries of

transportation gas made to Transporter at the Receipt Point(s) prior to execution

of a Transportation Agreement or submission of the Customer Nomination Form

provided in Section 3 above. For any unauthorized deliveries, Transporter shall

assess a charge equal to two times the Index Price as determined in accordance with

the procedures established in Section 5(b) of Rate Schedule LMS. Transporter shall

have the right to retain unauthorized deliveries at Receipt Point(s) which have not

been cured in accordance with above after 30 days notice to the responsible party.


7.4 Balancing at Contract Termination - Following the termination of the Transportation

Contract, Shipper shall be required to correct any remaining imbalance in receipts

and deliveries in cash in accordance with the procedures established in Section 6

of Rate Schedule LMS, unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.
