36.6 CRITICAL TIME OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDER

 

A. A Critical Time Operational Flow Order may be declared: (1)

when the total physical receipts to all or a portion of the

System are approaching or expected to approach a level that

is in excess of the total physical deliveries of the System;

(2) when System pressure on one or more pipeline segment(s)

is falling and approaching a level, or is expected to fall

and approach a level that is at or below the minimum that

Transporter considers necessary for System integrity or to

fulfill its firm contractual obligations; (3) when System

pressure on one or more pipeline segment(s) is rising and

approaching a level, or is expected to rise and approach a

level that is at or above the maximum pressure at which

Transporter's facilities may be safely operated; or (4) at

other times when Transporter is unable or anticipates it may

not be able to fulfill its firm contractual obligations or

otherwise when necessary to maintain the overall operational

integrity of all or a portion of Transporter's System. A

Critical Time may not be declared on all or a portion of the

System for the purpose of maintaining interruptible services

on that portion of the System, but interruptible Gas may

flow at times or on portions of the System when such flow

would not violate any operational control restrictions or

provisions of this Tariff. Transporter shall notify

Shippers through the Informational Postings portion of

Transporter's Interactive Website as to the reason(s) why a

Critical Time was declared. A Critical Time Operational

Flow Order shall be lifted as soon as reasonably practicable

after the conditions giving rise to such Order no longer

prevail.

 

B. Transporter shall advise Shippers on its System if it is

declaring a Critical Time, as described in Section 36.6A of

these General Terms and Conditions, and shall specify the

nature of the situation creating the Critical Time.

 

C. Transporter may issue Critical Time Operational Flow Orders

as described in Section 36.6 during a Critical Time.
