5.2 Transporter shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, the

natural gas to or for the account of Shipper at the Point(s) of

Delivery at a pressure specified in the applicable Service





6.1 On or before the ninth(9th) day of each month, Transporter

shall render to Shipper a statement of the transportation

charge of the total amount due for transportation provided

under an executed Service Agreement for natural gas received

from Shipper during the preceding month. Transporter shall

render an imbalance statement prior to or with the invoice. If

actual information is not available to Transporter by the ninth

(9th) day of each month, Transporter shall be allowed to

invoice Shipper based on estimated results, and such estimated

results shall be corrected to actual results in subsequent

month's billings, when such actual results are known. Such

statement of the transportation charges shall be deemed to have

been duly delivered and thereby received on the third Business

Day following the date on which same was deposited in the

United States mail. Transporter shall accompany such statement

of charges with a schedule showing volumes of natural gas, in

Mcf, and Heating Content, in Dth, received, Equivalent

Quantities delivered, and any imbalance. When information

necessary for billing purposes is in the control of Shipper, it

shall furnish such information to Transporter on or before the

sixth (6th) day of the month.


6.2 The types of allocation methodologies is a list from which

Transporter and Shipper may agree. If the Transporter and

Shipper cannot agree upon an allocation methodology, pro rata

based upon confirmed nominations should be used as the default

method. The party responsible for custody transfer (the party

performing the measurement function) should provide the

allocation. When the allocation method is rank, swing or

percentage, a new allocation detail may be needed when a

nomination changes. The timing for reporting daily operational

allocations after the gas has flowed is within one Business Day

after end of gas day. If the best available data for reporting

daily operational allocations is the scheduled quantity, that

quantity should be used for the daily operational allocation.

The responsibility for calculation and reporting of allocated

quantities should rest with the party responsible for accepting

GISB allocation types. The party receiving nominations should

provide allocation statements. The time limitation for

disputes of allocations should be 6 months from the date of the

initial month-end allocation with a 3-month rebuttal period.

This standard shall not apply in the case of deliberate

omission or misrepresentation or mutual mistake of fact.

Parties' other statutory or contractual rights shall not
