16.5 Relief From Interruptions of Firm Transportation Service in Emergency Situations.
(a) Transporter shall adjust interruptions made pursuant to this Section to the extent necessary to
respond to emergency situations. An emergency situation exists when irreparable injury to life or property
(including minimum plant protection requirements) will occur if natural gas transportation service is not
rendered to a Shipper under Transporter's firm transportation service agreements. Emergency exemptions from
interruption procedures or orders under this Section may be requested by a Shipper of firm transportation
services when supplemental deliveries in excess of its pro rata interruption level are required to prevent
irreparable injury to life or property, and such Shipper (1) has arranged to use all alternate sources of
supply and capacity available, including other pipeline capacity capable of operationally serving the affected
area of interruption, recallable released capacity, and alternate fuels, for the period involved, and (2) has
interrupted and will continue to interrupt service to its interruptible, off-system sales and low priority
shippers during the emergency.
(b) Such request shall be submitted by the Shipper to Transporter by telephonic or facsimile
transmission, and shall be confirmed in writing, within 24 hours of the request, including a sworn, notarized
statement attesting (1) to the details of the emergency; (2) its estimated length; (3) that Shipper has
unsuccessfully attempted to obtain capacity from other sources, including capacity release and assignment; (4)
that all sources of gas supply and capacity, including that available from other pipelines capable of
operationally serving the affected area of interruption are being used; (5) that interruptible services are
unavailable; (6) that no alternate fuel can be used to avoid the emergency; and (7) that it has interrupted
service to its interruptible shippers, off-system sales and other low priority shippers and will continue to
do so during the emergency.
