GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
CURTAILMENT AND INTERRUPTION
10. CURTAILMENT AND INTERRUPTION
10.1 If, due to Force Majeure conditions, as defined in GT&C Section 9.2, or due to necessary
but unplanned modifications, tests or repairs to Pipeline's system, Pipeline is unable to
Receive or Deliver Gas or customers are unable to Tender or Take Gas at scheduled points,
then Pipeline, upon providing as much notice to Customers as is reasonable under all of the
circumstances, shall have the right to order immediate reduction of its customers'
transportation entitlements to the extent necessary depending upon the type and location of
the occurrence. Reduction of service under this Section 10 shall not be permitted for
routine maintenance during normal periods of peak demand, where such maintenance was
required due to Pipeline's gross negligence, undue discrimination, or willful misconduct.
10.2 Reductions of service under this Section 10 shall be performed in accordance with the
A. In cases where Pipeline's ability to Receive, transport, or Deliver is affected,
Pipeline shall first order interruption or, where sufficient transportation supplies
are available, allocation of transportation quantities to customers based upon
scheduled nominations, in the following order:
(1) Scheduled service pursuant to GT&C Section 13.3.G.
(2) Scheduled service pursuant to GT&C Section 13.3.F.
(3) Scheduled service under all Firm Transportation Service Agreements pursuant
to GT&C Section 13.3.A, through E.
In the event that sufficient capacity is available to provide partial service in any of
the above curtailment categories, then Pipeline shall allocate available capacity
within each curtailment category on a pro rata basis.
B. Where Pipeline's ability to render service is impaired in a particular segment of
Pipeline's system, then interruption or allocation shall be imposed only in that segment
of Pipeline's system where its capability has been impaired.
C. In the event of an allocation under GT&C Section 10.2.A, each Customer's allocated
entitlement shall be utilized for purposes of calculating unauthorized overruns in
accordance with GT&C Section 37.2. Pipeline shall provide Customer notice of such
reduced contract quantity entitlement by telephone, facsimile, or e-mail. Such notice
shall be confirmed in writing as soon as reasonably possible.
D. In cases where Customer is unable to Tender Gas, Customer's entitlement shall be
reduced to the quantity Tendered, as independently verified and confirmed by Pipeline
based on the best information available to Pipeline. If, however, Pipeline is unable to
determine which customers are responsible for deficient Tenders at a particular Point of
Receipt, Pipeline shall reduce the entitlement of all customers Tendering Gas at such
point on a pro-rata basis based upon daily nominations. In the event of an occurrence
under this Section 10.2.D, each Customer's reduced entitlement shall be utilized for
purposes of the overrun provisions of GT&C Section 37.2.
10.3 Reverse Path Transactions. Reverse Path transportation service scheduled by Customer
pursuant to Section 5.2.A of any Firm Transportation Rate Schedule shall be reduced or
interrupted on a case-by-case basis on a not unduly discriminatory basis depending upon
Pipeline's system operations.
