26. Emergency Capacity Reallocation During Curtailment

 

(a) Buyer's Notification of an Emergency Situation

 

Buyer may notify Seller that an Emergency Situation

exists and request Seller to make adjustments to its

curtailment. An "Emergency Situation" is defined as a

situation where absent an adjustment to the curtailment,

Buyer will be unable, for the duration indicated by

Buyer, to serve essential human needs, avoid irreparable

injury to health or property, including environmental

emergencies, or to provide for minimum plant protection.

 

(b) Seller's Response to an Emergency Situation

 

Seller may, but shall not be obligated to, adjust its

curtailment of all other Buyers on a pro rata basis as

necessary to deliver the quantities required to avoid or

mitigate the threatened or existing Emergency Situation.

Seller's denial of any Buyer's request for emergency

relief will be on a not unduly discriminatory basis.

 

(c) Buyer's Obligation To Support Its Notification of an

Emergency Situation

 

Buyer must provide Seller a sworn statement within

twenty-four (24) hours of its notification to Seller of

its need for emergency relief. The sworn statement must

include:

 

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

for, the Emergency Situation;

 

(2) Affirmation that all sources of gas supply available

to Buyer, including peak-shaving and storage, are

being, and shall continue to be, utilized to the

maximum extent possible during the time period for

which the exception to the curtailment provisions is

in effect;

 

(3) Affirmation that all interruptible services of Buyer

have been, and shall continue to be, interrupted

during the time period for which the exception to

the curtailment provisions is in effect;
