Take or pay

In a buyer’s contract, take or pay is the obligation to pay for a specified amount of gas, whether this amount is taken or not. Depending on the contract terms, under-takes or over-takes may be taken as make-up or carry-forward into the next contract period. When it is credited into another contract period, this is called make-up gas.
