15. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDERS

 

15.1 General:

 

Transporter shall have the right to issue operational flow orders

("OFO") as specified in this Section 15. An OFO is an order

issued to alleviate conditions, inter alia, which threaten or

could threaten the safe operations or system integrity of

Transporter's system or to maintain operations required to provide

efficient and reliable firm service. Whenever Transporter

experiences these conditions, any pertinent order shall be

referred to as an OFO.

 

15.2 Preliminary Notifications/Follow-up Reports:

 

Transporter shall provide, via posting on Transporter's EBB, prior

notice to all OFO Recipients of upcoming system events such as

anticipated weather patterns and operational problems which may

necessitate the issuance of an OFO. Transporter shall provide, via

posting on Transporter's EBB, a written report which details the

underlying causes which warranted the issuance of the OFOs and

explains why the actions required by the OFO were necessary to

alleviate the identified problems.

 

15.3 Applicability of OFO:

 

Transporter shall make an OFO as localized as is reasonably

practicable based on Transporter's good faith and reasonable

judgement concerning the situations requiring remediation such

that an OFO will be directed (a)first to OFO Recipients causing

the problem necessitating the OFO or transporting gas in the area

of the system in which there is an operational problem, and

(b)second to those OFO Recipients transporting gas in the area of

the system where action is required to correct the problem

necessitating the OFO. Prior to the issuance of an OFO,

Transporter will attempt, if sufficient time exists, to alleviate

the situation necessitating the OFO through the application of the

scheduling and curtailment provisions in Section 11 of these

General Terms and Conditions. Transporter will tailor the OFO to

match the severity of the known or anticipated operational problem

requiring remediation as more fully set forth below.
