12. BALANCING OF GAS (Continued)


12.7 Netting and Trading


(a) Within twenty days after month end, TransColorado will

notify Shipper of its monthly imbalance. Imbalances may be traded and

netted as long as it reduces the imbalance to TransColorado.


(b) If trading among Shipper's transportation agreements on

the same system are not used to cure the imbalance, the Shipper's

imbalance will be posted on the Informational Postings portion of

TransColorado's Interactive Website, unless Shipper requests that postings

not be made, and for the remainder of that month, or at least ten days,

those imbalances may be traded or netted. To consummate a trade, both

trading parties must inform TransColorado via the electronic bulletin

board or fax of their agreement to trade and their desire for

TransColorado to offset the imbalances. Trades will be permitted as long

as the Shippers have imbalances in opposite directions. After receiving

notices from both trading parties, TransColorado will reflect the trade by

posting adjusted imbalances on the Informational Postings portion of its

Interactive Website
