GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

32.4 OPERATIONAL CONTROL SEQUENCE

 

In the event KMIP's observations or projections

indicate that a situation is or may be developing in which adequate

pressures may not be maintained or the overall operational integrity

of its system (or any portion thereof) could be threatened, or in

the event that such a situation actually occurs, KMIP is empowered

by this Section to take action to alleviate this situation. In

responding to such a situation, KMIP shall first apply the Advisory

Action procedures of Section 32.5. If such measures are not

sufficient to address the situation fully, KMIP shall next employ

Operational Flow Orders as provided in Section 32.6. In the event

Operational Flow Orders alone are not adequate, KMIP may invoke the

Critical Time procedures set out in Section 32.7. Finally, KMIP may

take unilateral action as provided in Section 32.8. The procedures

set out in such provisions, and their sequencing, are intended to be

applied only to the extent any of the specific actions indicated, or

such sequencing, would tend to alleviate the situation to be

addressed. In issuing Advisory Actions, Operational Flow Orders or

declaring a Critical Time, KMIP shall describe the conditions and

the specific responses required from the affected parties. To the

extent practicable, KMIP shall direct its actions hereunder to

Shippers creating or anticipated to create the situation to be

addressed and shall act consistent with Sections 32.9 and 32.10.

Nothing herein shall preclude KMIP from bypassing any of the above

procedures if, in its judgment, the situation so requires. KMIP will

keep Shippers advised through its Interactive Website on the status

of the situation.

 

32.5 ADVISORY ACTIONS

 

In the event KMIP determines that action is required to

avoid a situation in which system pressure is not maintained or in

which the overall operational integrity of the system or any portion

of the system is jeopardized, KMIP may take the Advisory Actions set

out herein to forestall the development of such a situation.

 

(a) Before taking any other action hereunder, KMIP

will interrupt, curtail or require adjustment to or supply shift in

service to interruptible Shippers to the extent such action will

address the situation creating operational concern.

 

(b) KMIP may request Shippers or other entities

affecting its System to take any of the following actions, or other

similar actions, to the extent such actions would tend to alleviate

the situation, on a voluntary basis:
