Seller will monitor, to the best of its ability, receipts and deliveries for each

transportation transaction and, based upon information available, advise the Buyer of any

imbalance situation which has occurred or may occur unless corrective action is taken.

Upon notification, Buyer shall be obligated to adjust receipts and deliveries of

transportation gas to correct or avoid any imbalance as promptly as practicable under the

circumstance. Any adjustment to receipts and deliveries by Buyer, whether or not

pursuant to notification from Seller, shall be coordinated with Seller's gas dispatchers

and in accord with the scheduling procedures set forth above.


Nothing in this Section 7 shall limit Seller's right to take actions as may be required

to adjust receipts and deliveries of gas in order to alleviate conditions which threaten

the integrity of its system, including maintenance of service to higher priority



If Buyer fails to maintain a balance of aggregate receipts and aggregate deliveries under

its Transportation Agreement, Seller shall impose one or more of the imbalance charges,

as applicable. Except with respect to the imbalance charge provided in (c) below,

however, no imbalance charge shall be assessed unless Seller has notified Buyer that an

imbalance has occurred or will occur without corrective action and Buyer has failed to

take action to the extent practical in coordination with Seller's gas dispatchers.

However, (1) Seller will not assess both daily and monthly imbalance penalties for an

imbalance occurring in any month, (2) Seller will not assess both daily and monthly

scheduling penalties for scheduling variances occurring in any month, (3) Seller will not

assess imbalance or scheduling penalties in the event Buyer's failure to take corrective

action is due to force majeure conditions as defined in Article X hereof other than

temporary failure of gas supply due to factors other than physical impairment of

facilities, and, (4) scheduling penalties shall not be assessed for periods where the

scheduling error did not cause Transporter to limit service to another Shipper. In

calculating excess and deficient quantities, Seller shall adjust for (1) quantities

retained for Seller's system fuel and use requirements and gas lost and unaccounted for,

(2) make-up quantities used pursuant to Seller's notification to correct any excess or

deficiency in receipt and deliveries and (3) for purposes of assessing imbalance charges,

any offsetting excess or deficiency in deliveries under other transportation contracts

between Seller and Buyer. The amounts collected as imbalance charges by Transporter

shall be credited to Account No. 191 as revenues received from the sale of gas.

at the Receipt Point(s) (Receipts) which are in excess of or deficient by the

greater of 50 Dth or five percent (5%) of the aggregate quantities delivered to

Buyer at the Delivery Point(s) (Deliveries), (Excess Gas or Deficiency Gas), Buyer

shall have seventy-two hours after notification by Seller, or such lesser period of

time as reasonably required by Seller to protect the integrity of its system, to

agree to a plan of corrective action, including issuing instructions to the upstream
