GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

11. SYSTEM OPERATIONAL PARAMETERS

11.1 Operating Plan. An Operating Plan affecting all firm Shippers will

be developed to coordinate the requirements and system operations

for each Month. The Operating Plan, which includes all scheduled

maintenance for each Month, will be the basis for Transporter's

operations during such Month to assure system integrity and

efficient operation of Transporter's transmission system. All

affected Parties will be required to conform their transportation

services to the Operating Plan, including responding to any Strained

Operating Condition ("SOC") or Critical Operating Condition issued

by Transporter. The Operating Plan for the year shall be posted on

Transporter's electronic bulletin board at least one Month prior to

the beginning of the year and will be updated at least Monthly

thereafter.

 

11.2 Critical Condition Procedures

(a) A Strained Operating Condition ("SOC") may be issued using the

notification procedures of Section 6.2(c)(iv) of this Tariff

in situations where in Transporter's reasonable judgment

general system flexibility, normally available Day to Day,

cannot be afforded to Shippers to accommodate minor variations

in receipt and delivery quantities from nominated levels.

Examples of such operating conditions include (1) when a

system outage occurs; (2) when extreme weather conditions

develop; (3) when line pack exceeds (above or below)

operational tolerances; or (4) when takes on a Shipper's

behalf deviate from its scheduled quantities by 5% or more.

The issuance of an SOC requests Shippers' voluntary support in

correcting over-performance or under-performance. An SOC does

not constitute a critical condition for purposes of the

Unauthorized Overrun Charge.

(b) If the SOC does not improve, Transporter, using its reasonable

judgment, may declare a Critical Operating Condition after the

SOC has been in effect for at least one intraday scheduling

cycle. The Critical Operating Condition will be issued using

the notification procedures of Section 6.2(c)(iv) of this

Tariff. The Critical Condition will be limited to the

smallest area of the system possible so that the fewest number

of Shippers are affected.

(c) During a Critical Operating Condition period, the Shipper

shall adjust receipts or deliveries to a level that varies

less than 3% from the scheduled volume for such Day or 100

dth, whichever is larger. If, the Shipper continues to under-

perform by failing to deliver or take the quantities it

scheduled for that flow Day, a Critical Condition Unauthorized

Overrun Charge shall be levied by Transporter to the Shipper

in the amount shown on the Statement of Rates sheet.
