GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
10. TRANSPORTATION BALANCING
10.1 Customers shall use their best efforts to avoid delivering or
receiving quantities of gas which deviate from the quantities of gas
scheduled by MRT for transportation and redelivery hereunder, and shall
keep MRT advised of any material deviations from the quantities scheduled.
Each Customer shall have the responsibility to maintain a concurrent
balance between receipts and deliveries, adjusted for appropriate fuel
reimbursement, based upon the best information available to the Customer.
MRT will provide to its Customers through its electronic communication
system gas flow information each day and Customers will be able to access
such information. MRT shall also make available to each Customer any other
information regarding daily receipts and daily deliveries for Customer's
account which MRT possesses.
10.2 If deliveries by MRT are greater or less than the corresponding
receipts of gas by MRT for transportation, less any gas retained for fuel
reimbursement, the imbalance shall be adjusted or corrected in accordance
with the terms of this section in addition to any other charges or remedies
to which MRT may be entitled.
10.3 Receipt Variance Penalty
(a) For purposes of this section, a "Receipt Variance Period" is
defined as a period of seven consecutive days during a month.
(b) If the actual, or if unavailable the estimated, quantity of
gas received within a zone by MRT from a Customer or Pool Operator
pursuant to a transportation service agreement or pooling agreement
varies, either positively or negatively, by the greater of 10% or
50 MMBtu from the quantity scheduled during a Receipt Variance Period,
MRT may impose a penalty equal to the amount of the variation in
excess of the tolerance, multiplied by the maximum Rate Schedule ITS
rate set forth on Sheet No. 7 of this tariff. However, if an
interruptible Customer's scheduled and/or flowing quantities for a
day are reduced to an intraday nomination by a firm Customer, and the
interruptible Customer did not receive advance notice of such
reduction in accordance with Section 8.1(f)(i) above, such day's
scheduled and received quantities will not be considered to be part of
the variation for the applicable Receipt Variance Period.
