and confirmed quantities for any day shall be resolved in-kind

promptly or Cash-out pursuant to the terms of the Operational

Balancing Agreement. To facilitate such determination of

variances on a timely basis, Pipeline and the OBA Party will agree

in the Operational Balancing Agreement on necessary measurement

and accounting procedures. Pipeline shall post on the LINKþ

are subject to an Operational Balancing Agreement. Pipeline will
