25 of these General Terms and Conditions;
(b) does not maintain a dispatching operation which is
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 execution of the
applicable Operational Balancing Agreement; or
(d) does not commit to timely determination of imbalances
based on reasonable available measurement technology.
28.4 Right to Protect System Integrity: Nothing in this
Article nor any executed Operational Balancing Agreement shall
limit Transporter's rights to take action as may be required to
adjust receipts and deliveries under any transportation
agreement to reflect actual experience or to alleviate
conditions which threaten the integrity of Transporter's pipeline
system, including maintenance of service to higher priority
Shippers or services.
