32. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDERS

 

32.1 Due to the effects of changes in weather, gas demands, flowing gas supplies and/or other factors, it

may be necessary for Transporter to informally, via telephone or facsimile, request adjustments in the

portfolio of flowing gas supplies of a Shipper(s)/Operator(s) to accommodate the demands on Transporter's

system. If Transporter does not receive full cooperation from its informal request(s), it may be necessary

for Transporter to issue Operational Flow Orders (OFO) on a non-discriminatory basis to control the

situation(s). All OFOs will be posted on Transporter's EBB and by Electronic Notice Delivery to affected

Shipper(s)/Operator(s) that will set forth the causes or conditions necessitating the OFO and the specific

responses required from the affected parties. Electronic Notice Delivery shall be according to the following

provisions:

(1) Transporter should provide affected parties with notification of intraday bumps,

operational flow orders and other critical notices through the affected party’s choice of Electronic

Notice Delivery mechanism(s).

 

(2) Unless the affected party and Transporter have agreed to exclusive notification via

EDI/EDM, the affected party should provide Transporter with at least one Internet E-mail address to

be used for Electronic Notice Delivery of intraday bumps, operational flow orders and other critical

notices. The obligation of Transporter to provide notification is waived until the above requirement

has been met.

 

(3) Transporter should support the concurrent sending of electronic notification of

intraday bumps, operational flow orders and other critical notices to two Internet E-mail addresses

for each affected party.

 

32.2 Circumstances under which Transporter may determine that OFOs must be issued include, but are not

limited to:

 

(a) Responding to an event of force majeure;

 

(b) Accommodating maintenance and repairs;

 

(c) Ensuring current and future maintenance of line pack; and

 

(d) Responding to any event that Transporter believes in its sole judgment may jeopardize the

integrity of its system.
