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. Before

issuing an OFO, Transporter will attempt to identify

specific Shippers causing a problem and attempt to remedy

those problems with those Shippers. If an OFO is issued by

Transporter pursuant to this Section 15, Transporter shall

not be required to curtail or suspend service to a

Shipper(s) whose current use of Transporter's Facility

mitigates the operating conditions on which the OFO is

based regardless of the class of service utilized by that

Shipper(s). Shipper's response to any specified gas

quantities provision contained in an OFO shall be subject

to the provisions of Section 15.2 to the extent that the

actual quantities of gas involved in Shipper's response to

the OFO is greater than one hundred and five percent (105%)

or less than ninety-five percent (95%) of the specified gas

quantities provision contained in the OFO.

 

15.2 Penalty:

 

All quantities tendered to Transporter and/or taken by

Shipper on a daily basis in violation of Transporter's OFO

shall constitute unauthorized receipts or deliveries for

which a charge of $25 per Dth shall be assessed and paid by

Shipper.

 

15.3 Exemptions:

 

Shipper will be exempt from penalties on imbalances

pursuant to Section 13.2 herein that result from complying

with an OFO. A reasonable make-up period will be allowed

to correct OFO created imbalances based on the then current

operations of Transporter's Facility. Upon an OFO becoming

effective as specified in the OFO or as provided in this

Section 15.3, Shipper or operator of the facilities

connecting with Transporter's Facility shall be permitted

the time stated in the OFO, or such lesser time as is

required to protect the integrity of Transporter's

Facility, to make adjustments in compliance with the OFO.

If Shipper complies with the provisions of the OFO within

such notice period then no penalty pursuant to Section 15.2

shall be assessed. Shipper will be exempt from penalties

caused solely by Transporter's failure to receive scheduled

quantities at a Receipt Point or to deliver scheduled

quantities to a Delivery Point, the provisions of Section

6 continuing to be being applicable.
