15. SYSTEM MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDERS
15.1 Operational Control of Facilities.
(a) Pipeline operates a reticulated system and will at all
times maintain operational control of all its facilities.
Shippers agree and acknowledge that Pipeline’s ability to
deliver anticipated quantities and maximize efficiency and
capacity utilization is dependent upon maintaining
projected flow patterns (e.g., receipts, deliveries, and
balances) within optimal ranges. Pipeline will endeavor at
all times to maintain adequate pressure through all
segments of its system, operate efficiently for the benefit
of all Shippers, preserve the operational integrity of all
segments of its system, prevent the use of the system by a
Shipper in a manner inconsistent with the Tariff which
could infringe on or threaten the rights of other Shippers,
and protect its ability to provide services to Shippers.
Pipeline shall have the unqualified right to utilize any
gas within its system, whether from line pack, receipts, or
otherwise, to maintain system balances and operational
control and to effect deliveries. The operational
integrity of Pipeline’s system shall encompass the
integrity of the physical system and the preservation of
physical assets and their performance, the overall
operating performance of the entire physical system or any
portion thereof, and the maintenance of adequate system
pressure, total system deliverability, and quality of gas
(b) For the purposes of system management, Pipeline may, but is
not obligated to, buy or sell gas, install additional
compression, or otherwise modify its system.
15.2 Point Operator Contacts. Operating personnel for Point Operators
shall cooperate with Pipeline in furtherance of this Section 15.
Each Point Operator shall designate one or more persons for
Pipeline to contact on operating matters at any time. If
Pipeline is unable to contact Point Operator’s designated contact
person, such Point Operator shall be solely responsible for any
consequences arising from such failure of communication.
