16.4 Shipper Emergency Situation. If a firm Shipper seeks relief from

a proposed curtailment for a Shipper Emergency Situation,

Pipeline may adjust the curtailment and any applicable OFO as

necessary.

 

(a) While Pipeline may make adjustments in curtailment promptly

on notification by Shipper, Shipper must provide Pipeline,

within 24 hours of Shipper’s relief request, a sworn

statement including:

 

(1) a detailed explanation of, and an estimated duration

of, the emergency;

 

(2) affirmation that all sources of gas supply available

to Shipper, including peak-shaving and storage, were

and are being used to the maximum extent possible to

resolve the emergency during the time period for

which the emergency exception to the curtailment

provisions of this Section 16 is in effect;

 

(3) affirmation that all interruptible loads served by

Shipper were and are being discontinued to resolve

the emergency during the time period for which the

emergency exception to the curtailment provisions of

this Section 16 is in effect;

 

(4) affirmation that no alternate fuel could be used or

is available to be used to prevent the necessity for

an emergency exception to the curtailment provisions

of this Section 16; and

 

(5) affirmation that Shipper has made and continues to

make all feasible efforts to resolve the emergency,

including requests for waiver, exemption, exception,

and other relief from any regulation, directive,

order, or other requirement of a governmental body.

 

(b) Shipper shall provide Pipeline immediate notice of the

cessation of the Shipper Emergency Situation.

Notwithstanding any provision of this Section 16.4,

however, Shipper shall not be entitled to relief under this

Section 16.4: (i) to the extent that a Shipper Emergency

Situation is due to Shipper’s failure to have adequate

transportation service arrangements in effect for the

delivery of Shipper’s gas at the Receipt Points or Delivery

Points during the relevant period; or (ii) to the extent

that the quantity of gas required to meet a Shipper

Emergency Situation exceeds Shipper’s firm contractual

rights.
