9.1 Payment under Rate Schedules: On or before the last Business Day

of each month Buyer shall pay to or upon the order of Seller in

lawful money of the United States at Seller's office, Portland,

Oregon, the amount of the bill rendered by Seller for the billing

month in accordance with Paragraph 8.1. In accordance with GISB

Standard 3.3.17, Version 1.0, party making payment should submit

supporting documentation; party receiving payment should apply

payment per supporting documentation provided by the paying party;

and if payment differs from invoiced amount, remittance detail

should be provided with the payment. Buyer shall identify invoice

numbers on all payments. In the event a Buyer disputes any

portion of the invoice, Buyer shall pay that portion of the

invoice not in dispute and provide supporting documentation

identifying the basis for the dispute.




9.3 Interest on Unpaid Amounts: Should Buyer fail to pay the amount

of any bill rendered by Seller when such amount is due, interest

thereon shall accrue at a rate of interest equal to the rate of

interest on refunds required by the Federal Energy Regulatory

Commission as in effect from time to time.


9.4 Remedies for Failure to Pay: If such failure to pay continues for

sixty (60) days after payment is due, Seller, in addition to any

other remedy it may have, may (subject to obtaining requisite

regulatory approval) suspend further delivery of gas until such

amount is paid, unless Buyer in good faith disputes the amount

owing and pays such amount as it concedes to be correct. Either

party may submit to arbitration in accordance with Paragraph 17

any dispute as to the amount due Seller hereunder.


9.5 Late Billing: If presentation of a bill by Seller is delayed

after the due date, then the time for payment shall be extended

correspondingly unless Buyer is responsible for such delay.


9.6 Adjustment of Billing Error: In accordance with GISB Standard

3.3.15, Version 1.0, prior period adjustment time limits should be

6 months from the date of the initial transportation invoice and 7

months from date of initial sales invoice with a 3-month rebuttal

period, excluding government-required rate changes. 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 otherwise be diminished

by this standard.
