GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

36. OPERATIONAL PARAMETERS (Contd.)

 

36.7 UNILATERAL ACTION

 

In the event that the requested or required actions under Sections

36.3 through 36.6 (the Advisory Actions, Directional Notices or

Critical Time Operational Flow Orders) are inadequate, or there is

insufficient time to carry out such procedures, Transporter may

periodically have to take unilateral action to maintain System

pressure and preserve the overall operational integrity of

Transporter's System (or any portion thereof). Transporter is

authorized to use all the resources of its System to such ends,

including, but not limited to adjusting line pack and supply

received into and deliveries from Transporter's System.

Transporter shall not, however, be responsible as a supplier of

Gas to any Shipper.

 

36.8 APPLICABILITY OF ACTIONS

 

In exercising its authority pursuant to Sections 36.3 through

36.7, Transporter shall generally direct its actions to Shippers

in the following sequence, to the extent such actions and/or

sequencing will tend to alleviate the situation to be addressed:

 

A. First, to any Shipper which has been identified to take

action and is causing disruption due to its failure to

maintain receipts and deliveries in Balance or to match

physical flows with nominated receipts or deliveries;

 

B. Second, to any Shipper which has been identified to take

action and has failed or is failing to take action to

anticipate a change in demand (i.e., a temperature sensitive

LDC or end user failing to respond to changes in weather);

 

C. Third, to any Shipper which has been identified to take

action and is operating in a manner which conflicts with

sound operational practices in relation to Transporter's

System; and

 

D. Lastly, to all other Shippers.
