6.6 Balancing of Transportation Quantities and Imbalance

Charges. It shall be the responsibility of the Shipper to

control and, if necessary, adjust deliveries of gas to

Transporter and receipts of transportation gas from

Transporter in order to maintain a daily balance of receipts

and deliveries. It is the intention of Transporter that

daily deliveries of natural gas by Transporter to Shipper

hereunder shall be approximately equal to daily receipts of

natural gas by Transporter from Shipper hereunder, less Fuel

Usage and Applicable Shrinkage. However, due to variations

in operating conditions, daily and monthly deliveries

hereunder by Transporter may be greater or less than

corresponding receipts of natural gas hereunder by

Transporter for transportation, less Fuel Usage and

Applicable Shrinkage. Transporter will monitor, to the best

of its ability, receipts and deliveries for each

transportation transaction and, based upon information

available, advise the Shipper of any imbalance situation

which has occurred or which may occur unless corrective

action is taken. Upon notification, Shipper shall be

obligated to adjust receipts and deliveries of gas to

correct or avoid any imbalance. Any adjustments to receipts

and deliveries by Shipper, whether or not pursuant to

notification from Transporter, shall be coordinated with

Transporter's gas dispatchers.


If Shipper fails to maintain a balance of receipts and

deliveries, Transporter shall impose the imbalance charges,

as applicable. No imbalance penalty shall be assessed

unless Transporter has notified Shipper that an imbalance

has occurred or will occur without corrective action and

Shipper has failed to take action in coordination with

Transporter's gas dispatchers. However, Transporter will

not assess both scheduling penalties and monthly imbalance

penalties for imbalances occurring in any month. Further,

Transporter will not assess penalties in the event

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

majeure conditions, as defined in Section 8 of this FTS Rate

Schedule, other than temporary failure of gas supply due to

factors other than physical impairment of facilities. In

calculating imbalances, Transporter shall take into

consideration (l) 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 transportation contracts between Transporter and
