Any imbalance quantities not resolved pursuant to Sections 8.2 and 8.3

will be handled in accordance with this Section 8.4 and Section 8.5

below. For purposes of determining the imbalance quantity that will

be subject to resolution pursuant to Sections 8.5(B) and 8.5(C) below,

all imbalances within an Operational Impact Area due Cash-out Party

under all of Cash-out Party's contracts and all imbalances in that

same Operational Impact Area due Pipeline under all of Cash-out

Party's contracts shall be summed together to yield a single volume of

net imbalances for that Operational Impact Area for the month. The

appropriate index prices, as determined in Section 8.5(a) below, shall

be applied to this single quantity for the month.
