15.3 OFOs.

 

(a) Standards for Issuing an OFO. Pipeline may issue a

Standard OFO or an Emergency OFO to preserve the integrity

of its system, to prevent or respond to a force majeure

event, to ensure adequate operating pressures, to have

adequate supplies in its system, to assure adequate FRQ, to

maintain firm services, and to stabilize the operation of

its system.

 

(b) Scope of OFO. To the extent possible, Pipeline will

identify any particular Shipper(s) whose action(s) may

require Pipeline to issue an OFO. Pipeline will limit OFOs

only to such Shipper(s). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if

Pipeline is unable to identify any specific Shipper(s)

whose action(s) may require issuance of an OFO, an OFO

nevertheless may be issued to resolve the operational

problem, including a zone-wide or system-wide OFO.

 

(c) Advance Notice of OFO. To the extent operationally

feasible, Pipeline will post on its Internet Website

advance notice of a potential OFO advising Shippers of the

operational variables that may require the issuance of an

OFO. To the extent operationally feasible, Pipeline will

issue a Standard OFO prior to issuing an Emergency Response

OFO.

 

(d) Notice of OFOs. If Pipeline issues an OFO, Pipeline will

post a notice of such OFO on its Internet Website: (i)

identifying whether the OFO is a Standard OFO or an

Emergency Response OFO; (ii) describing the conditions and

the specific responses required; (iii) identifying

Shipper(s), Receipt Points or Delivery Points, or the

portion of Pipeline’s system to which the OFO is directed;

and (iv) stating the anticipated duration of such OFO. The

Internet Website posting will constitute effective notice

of an OFO; however, Pipeline will provide additional

notification of an OFO to the affected Shipper(s) by e-

mail. To the extent feasible under the circumstances,

Pipeline will post any notice of: (i) a Standard OFO at

least 12 hours before the last nomination cycle prior to

such OFO becoming effective; or (ii) an Emergency Response

OFO at least two (2) hours before the last nomination cycle

prior to such OFO becoming effective. The notice will be

updated when new information is available. Pipeline will

post a notice on the Internet Website when any OFO in

effect will be cancelled. Additionally, Pipeline shall

publish a final notice on its Internet Website, within

three (3) Business Days from the date an OFO ends,

providing details regarding the OFO.
