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
(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.
