15.5 Curtailment Over-Run Penalty - If, during any

curtailment which Norte¤o does not terminate prior

to its originally announced expiration date, Buyer

or Shipper takes, without Norte¤o's advance

approval, a quantity of natural gas in excess of

the curtailment quantity allocated to such Buyer

or Shipper, said quantity shall constitute a

Curtailment Over-Run quantity; provided however,

that no gas delivered at any point where Norte¤o

has complete and unrestricted control of gas

deliveries shall be considered a Curtailment

Over-Run quantity. If Shipper or Buyer does not

correct the excess takes within 48 hours of notice

by Norte¤o thereto of such excess takes, for each

MMBTU of such Curtailment Over-Run quantity taken

by such Buyer or Shipper, that Buyer or Shipper

shall pay to Norte¤o a penalty of ten dollars

($10.00); provided, however, that Norte¤o shall

have the right, without the obligation, to waive

any penalty for a Curtailment Over-Run quantity

under this Section 15.5, to the extent that such a

waiver is not unduly discriminatory if for the

period for which the penalty was incurred,

deliveries to Norte¤o's other Buyers or Shippers

were not adversely affected by the taking of such

Curtailment Over-Run quantity and if Norte¤o's

pipeline operations were not impaired thereby.

The payment of a penalty for a Curtailment

Over-Run shall not under any circumstances be

considered as giving any such customer the right

to take any Curtailment Over-Run quantity; nor

shall such payment be considered as a substitute

for any other remedies available to Norte¤o or

other Buyer or Shipper against the offending

Buyer or Shipper for failure to adhere to its

obligations under the provisions of this Section
