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

delivered.

 

(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.
