Norte¤o's gas dispatchers that the revised

service, as in Section 19.1, is scheduled to

commence. Shipper shall advise Norte¤o as soon as

possible with respect to any Force Majeure or

adverse weather conditions affecting its service.


19.3 Balancing Charges - Nothing in this Section 19.3

shall limit Norte¤o'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 Shipper fails to maintain a balance of receipts

and deliveries, Norte¤o shall impose one or more

of the balancing charges as applicable. Except

with respect to the balancing charge provided in

(d) below, however, no balancing charge shall be

assessed unless Norte¤o has notified Shipper that

an imbalance has occurred or will occur without

corrective action and Shipper has failed to take

action in coordination with Norte¤o's gas

dispatchers. However, Norte¤o will not assess

balancing charges in the event Shipper's failure

to take corrective action is due to Force Majeure,

curtailment, or other unavailability of capacity;

and any period for such corrective action shall be

extended accordingly when Shipper is prevented by

such Force Majeure, curtailment or other

unavailability of capacity to take such corrective



In calculating quantities for the determination of

charges herein, Norte¤o shall take into

consideration (1) Retention Quantities, (2)

make-up quantities delivered pursuant to Norte¤o's

notification to correct any excess or deficiency

in receipts and deliveries and (3) for purposes of

assessing balancing charges, any offsetting excess

or deficiency in receipts and deliveries at the

affected Receipt Point(s) and Delivery Point(s)

under other Service Agreements between Norte¤o and
