16. INTERRUPTIONS OF SERVICE

 

Interruptions of service for purposes of this Tariff (i) shall include but not be limited to

decreasing, suspending, or discontinuing the discharging of LNG or receipt or delivery of

Natural Gas, and (ii) shall be effected by Operator in accordance with the provisions of

this Section.

 

(a) Interruptions of Firm Services.

 

(1) If due to force majeure, routine maintenance, modifications, tests or repairs to

Operator's facilities or the need to protect the integrity or performance

capability of its facilities, the available capacity in Operator's facilities or

a portion thereof is temporarily insufficient to meet all of Operator's

authorized firm services on any day, then Operator, upon providing as much notice

as possible, shall interrupt all such services in accordance with the priorities

set forth at Section 16(d) below Operator will specify in interruption orders

issued pursuant to this Section the: (i) date and time by which Buyer must

comply; and (ii) the revised quantity (if any) authorized to flow (Lowered

Quantity). Operator will make every effort to schedule routine maintenance so

that its firm delivery obligations under Rate Schedule FPS-1, FPS-2 and FPS-3 can

be met during the Withdrawal Season.

 

(2) Where Operator's ability to render service is impaired in a particular portion of

Operator's facilities, interruptions of firm services shall be effected, in

accordance with Section 16(a)(1) above, only for those Buyers served through the

portion(s) of Operator's facilities in which service has been impaired.

 

(3) A Buyer that fails to interrupt its firm service as directed by Operator shall be

subject to penalties as set forth at Section 12 (Penalties) of the General Terms

and Conditions.

 

(b) Interruptions of Interruptible Service.

 

(1) Operator may interrupt any interruptible services (i) for the reasons set forth

in Section 16(a) above, or (ii) for the purpose of making capacity available for

firm services. Whenever Operator determines that such interruption is

appropriate, Operator shall do so in accordance with the priorities set forth at

Section 16(d) below.

 

(2) Where Operator's ability to render service is impaired in a particular portion of

Operator's facilities, interruptions of interruptible services shall be effected,

in accordance with Section 16(b)(1) above, only for those Buyers served through

the portion(s) of Operator's facilities in which service has been impaired.

 

(3) A Buyer that fails to interrupt its interruptible service as directed by Operator

shall be subject to penalties as set forth at Section 12 (Penalties) of the

General Terms and Conditions.
