GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
13. OPERATING CONDITIONS (Continued)
13.12 Balancing. Balancing of thermally equivalent volumes of gas
received and delivered shall be achieved as nearly as feasible on a
daily basis, with any cumulative imbalance accounted for as provided in
Section 14. Imbalance makeup shall be nominated and scheduled in
accordance with the nomination procedures of this Section or netted or
traded as provided in Section 14.
13.13 System Integrity. Nothing herein shall limit Transporter's right
to take actions or to require Receiving Parties or Shippers hereunder to
take actions of whatever nature may be required to correct any
situations which may threaten the operation or integrity of its system,
including maintenance of service to other customers. Among the actions
Transporter shall be entitled to take is the issuance of Operational
Flow Orders in accordance with Section 13.14 below.
13.14 Operational Flow Order ("OFO")
(a) Transporter, in its reasonable discretion, shall have the right
to issue OFOs when in its reasonable judgment it is necessary to
maintain or restore the operational integrity of its system.
Additional circumstances under which Transporter may determine that
OFOs may be issued include, but are not limited to:
(1) Responding to an event of force majeure;
(2) When an emergency arises that impacts line pack in order to
insure maintenance of the necessary level of line pack;
(3) Accommodating emergency maintenance and repairs; and/or,
(4) Preventing receipts or deliveries that conflict with
contractual entitlements of others.
(b) An OFO identical in terms to that of the Delivering Pipeline
shall be deemed to be issued automatically by Transporter whenever the
Delivering Pipeline issues an OFO affecting deliveries to Transporter.
(c) Whenever possible, Transporter shall identify those Shipper(s)
whose action(s) require Transporter to issue an OFO and shall limit
the applicability of the OFO to such Shipper(s). If Transporter is
unable to identify those Shipper(s) whose action(s) require issuance
of an OFO, or if issuance of an OFO to discrete Shipper(s) is
insufficient to alleviate the conditions requiring the issuance of
such OFO, Transporter may issue an additional OFO applicable to all
Shippers on a nondiscriminatory basis.
