GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

9.5 DECLARATION OF A CRITICAL TIME

 

(a) A Critical Time 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 KMIP can transport without jeopardizing the

integrity of its facilities; (2) when system pressure is falling

and approaching a level or is expected to fall and approach a level

that is at or below the minimum that KMIP considers necessary for

system integrity or to fulfill its firm contractual obligations;

(3) when System pressure 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 any portion of KMIP's facilities may be

safely operated; or (4) at other times when KMIP 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 KMIP'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. KMIP

shall notify Shippers on the Informational Postings portion of its

Interactive Website as to the reason(s) why a Critical Time was

declared.

 

(b) Notice of a Critical Time will be posted on the

Informational Postings portion of KMIP's Interactive Website. KMIP

will endeavor to post such notice before 4:00 p.m. Central Time or

otherwise will endeavor to notify Shippers via its Interactive

Website by 4:00 p.m. Central Time that they should check its

Interactive Website again at a specified later time to see whether

a Critical Time will be in effect for the next Day. KMIP must

attempt to give actual notice of a Critical Time via telefax or

telephone (provided a Shipper has given the numbers to KMIP as

required in Section 32) at least four (4) hours prior to the start

of the Day before a Critical Time will be effective as to a

Shipper. Such notice shall specify the anticipated duration of the

Critical Time and whether the Critical Time Balancing Service

Charges will apply to over-receipts and under-deliveries vis-a-vis

confirmed nominations or to under-receipts and over-deliveries vis-

a-vis confirmed nominations. A Critical Time will be effective at

the start of a Day and will continue until the end of the Day and

through the end of successive Days until KMIP notifies Shippers via

its Interactive Website that there is no longer a Critical Time.
