Whereas, NGT and PDA Operator desire to reach an agreement

on the allocation methodology of Gas received by [NGT],

NOW, THEREFORE, NGT and PDA Operator agree that such

successor provisions thereto. For purpose hereof, an Imbalance

NGT [receives] [delivers] at the interconnections specified on

Exhibit A and the quantities nominated and allocated to valid

Service Agreements by PDA Operator at any time or during any

period. A Monthly Imbalance shall mean the Imbalance existing

at the conclusion of any Service Month under this Agreement.

PDA Operator shall be required to comply with the provisions of

Section 14 of the General Terms and Conditions of NGT's Tariff.

For purposes of Section 14.5 thereof, NGT may require security

as provided for therein based on charges which may be assessed

hereunder. All terms used herein with capital letters shall

have the meanings ascribed to them in NGT's Tariff, unless

otherwise provided herein. The existence or operation of this

Agreement shall at no time undermine or jeopardize NGT's

ability to maintain system and segment operations and integrity

in accordance with the provisions of its Tariff, including, but

not limited to, Section 20 (or any successor provisions) of the
