Transporter will monitor, to the best of its ability

receipts and deliveries for each transportation transaction

and, based upon information available, advise the Customer

of any imbalance situation which has occurred or which may

occur unless corrective action is taken. Upon notification,

Customer shall be obligated to adjust receipts and

deliveries of gas to correct or avoid any imbalance. Any

adjustments to receipts and deliveries by Customer, whether

or not pursuant to notification from Transporter, shall be

coordinated with Transporter's gas dispatchers.


If Customer fails to maintain a balance of receipts and

deliveries, Transporter shall impose the imbalance charges,

as applicable. Except with respect to the imbalance penalty

provided in (b) below, however, no imbalance penalty shall

be assessed unless Transporter has notified Customer that an

imbalance has occurred or will occur without corrective

action and Customer has failed to take action in

coordination with Transporter's gas dispatchers. However,

Transporter will not assess both daily and monthly imbalance

penalties for imbalances occurring in any month; further,

Transporter will not assess imbalance penalties in the event

Customer's failure to take corrective action is due to force

majeure conditions other than temporary failure of gas

supply due to factors other than physical impairment of

facilities. In calculating imbalances, Transporter shall

take into consideration (1) quantities retained for fuel and

line loss; (2) make-up quantities used pursuant to

Transporter's notification to correct any excess or

deficiency in receipt and deliveries; and (3) for purposes

of assessing penalties, any offsetting excess or deficiency

in deliveries under other contracts between Transporter and

Customer. Transporter will not take into account prior

period adjustments in calculating an imbalance penalty, if

such adjustments cause or increase a current month penalty.




At least seven days prior to the end of each month,

Transporter shall notify Customer if it appears that

deliveries to Transporter at the Receipt Point(s) will be

in excess of or deficient by five percent or more of the

transportation quantities delivered to Customer at the

Delivery Point(s).
