7.2 In the event Pipeline is advised by a Customer that,

absent adjustment of the curtailment level contemplated

by Section 7, a Customer will be unable to render service

to the priority-use requirements specified in Sections

401 and 402 of the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978

("NGPA") and 18 C.F.R. Section 281.201 et seq. of the

Commission's Regulations ("high priority-use

requirements") or is advised by a Customer that

adjustment of the curtailment level is necessary to avoid

irreparable injury to life or property (including

environmental emergencies) or to provide for minimum

plant protection ("emergency situation"), then Pipeline

shall adjust its curtailment of all other Customers on a

pro rata basis as necessary to deliver the quantities

required to avoid or mitigate the impact on the "high

priority-use requirements" or the "emergency situation."

While Pipeline will make adjustments in curtailment

promptly upon notification by Customer, Customer must

provide Pipeline within 24 hours of notification a sworn

statement attesting:

 

A. that all sources of gas supply available to

Customer, including peak-shaving and storage, were

possible during the time period for which the

exception to the curtailment provisions of Section 7

is in effect; and

 

B. that all interruptible services of Customer were and

are being interrupted or curtailed during the time

period for which the exception to the curtailment

provisions of Section 7 is in effect; and

 

C. that no alternate fuel could be utilized or is

available to be utilized to prevent the necessity

for an exception to the curtailment provisions of

Section 7.

 

7.3 Pipeline shall not be liable for granting exceptions to

the curtailment provisions of Section 7 for any Customer

based upon a request submitted by any such Customer to

Pipeline under the "high priority-use requirements" and

"emergency situation" relief provisions of this Section

7. In the event that Customer does not provide the sworn

statement on a timely basis as required by this Section

7, then all quantities attributable to the adjustments
