GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(f) Action Alerts: In the event that Liberty determines that due to (1) an

ongoing or anticipated weather event, (2) a known equipment problem, or (3) the

anticipated continuation of a current system operational problem, action is

necessary to avoid a situation in which the system integrity is jeopardized or

Liberty's ability to render firm service is threatened, Liberty may issue an

Action Alert as set out herein to forestall the development of the situation.

(1) Issuance of Alerts: Action Alerts will be noticed in accord with the

procedures set forth in Section 5.5(e) and Liberty will endeavor to provide a

minimum of four hours notice.

(2) Action Alerts can be issued to effect any of the following:

(A) restriction of Interruptible services;

(B) restrictions of deliveries to specific Point(s) of Receipt or Point(s) of

Delivery covered by an operational balancing agreement to the aggregate MDRQ or

MDDQ under the Firm or Secondary Firm Storage Service Agreements whose Primary

Point(s) of Delivery, which are specified in the Storage Service Agreement, are

at the affected locations; and/or

(C) forced balancing such that point operators will be required to assure that

nominations equal flows or that receipts and deliveries fall within the

tolerance level designated in the Action Alert.

(g) OFOs: In the event that, in Liberty's judgment, immediate action is

required to alleviate conditions which threaten to impair reliable firm

service, to maintain operations at the pressures required to provide efficient

and reliable service, to have adequate Gas supplies in the system to deliver on

demand, to maintain services to all firm Customers and for all firm services,

and to maintain the system in balance for the foregoing purposes, Liberty may

forgo the action described in Section 5.5(f) and immediately issue an OFO. In

the event that (l) Customer or point operator does not respond to an Action

Alert, (2) the actions taken thereunder are insufficient to correct the system

problem for which the Action Alert was issued, or (3) there is insufficient

time to carry out the procedures with respect to Action Alerts, Liberty may

issue an OFO pursuant to this Section 5.5(g) or take unilateral action,

including the curtailment of firm service, to maintain the operational

integrity of Liberty's system. For purposes of this Section, the operational

system and the preservation of physical assets and their performance, the

overall operating performance of the entire physical system as an entity, and

the maintenance (on a reliable and operationally sound basis) of total system

deliverability and the quality of Gas delivered. Liberty shall post a

notice on its Internet Web Site specifying the factors that caused the Action

Alert or OFO to be issued, to the extent such factors are known. Liberty

shall also provide such notification via e-mail communication to those

Customers who have submitted a request and provided e-mail address information

for at least one contact person, via Liberty's Internet Web Site to receive

e-mail notification of Critical Notices issued by Liberty.
