GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

(3) No Shipper will be required under an

Operational Flow Order to exceed its total firm MDQ under its

Agreements with KMIP under Part 284 of the Commission's Regulations.

Nor will a Shipper be required to accept delivery of gas which the

Shipper cannot use in its plant or service territory. Shipper shall

not be required by an Operational Flow Order to take any gas which

does not conform to the quality standards in Section 19 of these

General Terms and Conditions to the extent that taking such gas

would create an operational or maintenance problem on its system.

Further, a Shipper subject to an Operational Flow Order issued to

increase deliveries at Receipt Points will have the option to

decrease takes at the Delivery Point by a like amount instead, and

vice versa. Similarly, a Shipper subject to an Operational Flow

Order issued to decrease deliveries at Receipt Points will have the

option to increase takes at the Delivery Point by a like amount

instead, and vice versa.

 

(b) In issuing Operational Flow Orders to correct

problems with either too much gas or insufficient gas being received

vis-à-vis deliveries, KMIP will generally follow the following

sequence, to the extent there is sufficient time:

 

(1) KMIP will require all Shippers out of

balance to the detriment of the System to balance their Agreements.

 

(2) KMIP will seek voluntary action from

Shippers, subject to the Shipper and KMIP negotiating adequate

compensation.

 

(3) KMIP will interrupt interruptible services

if that will restore system flexibility prior to issuance of

generally applicable Operational Flow Orders or curtailment of firm

services. This step will be taken when Shippers are failing to

comply with previously issued Operational Flow Orders or when KMIP

cannot identify which Shippers are creating the problem.
