(d) Remittance to GRI


Panhandle shall remit to GRI, not later than fifteen

(15) Days after the receipt thereof, all monies

actually collected and received by virtue of the GRI

Funding Unit and the voluntary contribution mechanism,

less any amounts properly payable to a Federal, State

or Local authority relating to the monies received

hereunder. In no event will Panhandle be required to

remit to GRI amounts not actually collected, except as

specified in this Section 18.1. For the amounts

received through the voluntary contribution mechanism,

Panhandle shall indicate to GRI the amounts applicable

to specific projects and project areas, if so

indicated by Shipper.


(e) Payment by Shipper


The amount of applicable Shipper's GRI Funding Unit

shall be due and payable with the monthly billing in

accordance with the General Terms and Conditions.


(f) Flowthrough of Refunds from GRI


To the extent Panhandle receives refunds from GRI

because (1) Panhandle has remitted to GRI more than

its target level, or (2) GRI has met its current

year cash requirements, Panhandle will, in turn,

flowback such amounts to its non-discounted firm

Shippers in accordance with the Stipulation and

Agreement previously described in Section 18.1(a).


(g) Voluntary Contribution Mechanism


Shipper shall be permitted to make voluntary

contributions to GRI in such amounts and for such GRI

project(s) or project area(s) as Shipper specifies.

To facilitate the voluntary collection mechanism,

Panhandle will include with Shipper's invoice a

procedure to permit Shipper to designate contributions

for GRI RD&D Programs. The voluntary contribution

invoice mechanism is not a pipeline rate, rate

provision nor term or condition of service. It is

included in the invoice in accordance with the

January 21, 1998, Stipulation and Agreement Concerning

GRI Funding approved by the Commission in Gas Research

Institute, 83 F.E.R.C. 61,093 (1998), order on

reh'g, 83 F.E.R.C. 61,331 (1998). Any amounts

remitted to Panhandle pursuant to the voluntary

contribution mechanism shall be forwarded to GRI by

Panhandle as described in Section 18.1(d) herein and

are not refundable by Panhandle.
