The Parties agree to use their respective best efforts to resolve any dispute(s) that may arise regarding this ESA. Any dispute that arises under or with respect to this ESA that cannot be resolved shall in the first instance be the subject of informal negotiations between the Parties involved in the dispute. The dispute shall be considered to have arisen when one Party sends the other Party(ies) involved in the dispute a written notice of dispute. The period for informal negotiations shall be fourteen (14) days from receipt of the written notice of dispute unless such time is modified by written agreement of the Parties involved in the dispute. In the event that the parties involved in the dispute cannot resolve a dispute by informal negotiations, the Parties agree to submit the dispute to mediation. Within fourteen (14) days following the expiration of the time period for informal negotiations, the Parties shall propose and agree upon a neutral and otherwise qualified mediator. In the event that the Parties fail to agree upon a mediator, the Parties shall request that the American Arbitration Association (AAA), Boston, Massachusetts, appoint a mediator and the mediation will be held in Boston, Massachusetts or other mutually agreed to venue. The period for mediation shall commence upon the appointment of the mediator and shall not exceed sixty (60) days, unless such time period is modified by written agreement of the Parties.

In the event that the Parties cannot resolve a dispute by informal negotiations or mediation, the Parties agree to submit such dispute to arbitration and agree that the arbitration process provided for in this Article 12.2 shall be the exclusive means for resolving disputes which the Parties cannot otherwise resolve through informal negotiation or mediation as described above. Any arbitration hereunder shall be conducted under the Commercial Rules of the AAA as modified herein. Arbitration proceedings shall take place in Boston, Massachusetts, before a single arbitrator who shall be an attorney with at least 20 years of experience in the energy industry, to be jointly selected by the Parties. If the Parties fail to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty (30) days, then either Party may apply to the American Arbitration Association’s office in Washington, D. C. to select the arbitrator who must be an attorney at least twenty (20) years of experience in the energy industry.

In connection with any arbitration provisions hereunder, each Party shall have the right to take the depositions of individuals including any expert witness retained by the other Party.

Each of the Parties hereby consents to the jurisdiction of Massachusetts courts for such purpose. The arbitrator shall apply Massachusetts law as required under Article 12.1 and shall have authority to award any remedy or relief that a court of the State of Massachusetts could grant in accordance with applicable law and the terms of this ESA, except that the arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive damages.
