4.8 Imbalance Resolution.


(a) A Shipper may elect to resolve imbalances either "in kind"

or by "cash-out". This election must be made by submitting

a completed and signed "Imbalance Resolution Methodology

Form", in the form appearing on Transporter's Web Site.

Any Shipper not submitting that form will be deemed to have

elected to resolve imbalances via cash-out. All imbalances

on all of Shipper's contracts must be resolved using the

same methodology. The election of methodologies must be

made at or before the earliest time a nomination is

required to be submitted under any of Shipper's contracts

for the first day of the month. Such election will remain

of the month shall be subject to "cash-out" resolution,

whether it elected "in kind" or "cash-out" resolution of

participant in written form. Transporter will have
