14.1 Invoicing and Payment.


(a) Transporter shall have the right to invoice

Shipper each Month (as may be adjusted for

invoicing or measurement cycle purposes) for all

purposes on the basis of nominated quantities or

estimated quantities, provided that adjustments

shall be made to such quantities in subsequent

months' invoicing based on actual quantities, as

appropriate. Transporter's invoices will be

prepared no later than nine (9) Business Days

after the close of each Service Month. At

Shipper's option, Transporter shall submit

invoices to Shipper electronically. To exercise

such option, unless Transporter otherwise

agrees, Shipper must give Transporter thirty

(30) Days' written notice to effectuate

electronic invoicing. Shipper must also execute

any electronic access agreement which may be

required by Transporter for such purpose. In any

Month, Transporter may submit to Shipper

separate invoices for applicable charges and

fees related to service provided for Shipper

under this Tariff (including, but not limited

to, invoices for fixed charges, e.g.,

Reservation Charges, at any time during the

applicable Service Month; invoices for variable

charges, e.g., commodity, usage and overrun

charges; and invoices for penalties). In the

event that conduct by Shipper under a Service

Agreement or the provisions of this Tariff

constitutes a violation of its obligations

thereunder such that Shipper would incur more

than one penalty for the same act or failure to

act, Transporter will charge, and Shipper shall

pay, in addition to any amounts due under

Section 5.7, only the total penalty charges

applicable to the conduct or action yielding the

highest dollar amount.


(b) Payment of all invoiced amounts shall be due and

received by Transporter in accordance with

Transporter's instructions within ten (10) Days

after the date of the invoice, unless Shipper
