staffed on a continuous, around-the-clock basis;


(c) would cause an increase in the level of regulation

which Transporter is subject to prior to the exe-

cution of the applicable Operational Balancing

ances based on reasonable available measurement

transportation agreement to reflect actual experience or

to alleviate conditions which threaten the integrity of
