GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Section 18

(Cont'd)

 

 

(h) Texas Gas may issue an OFO in the event a NNS, NNL, SGT, or SGL customer's

summer season daily storage withdrawal rate exceeds 10 percent of his

winter contract demand for three consecutive gas days. Texas Gas may also

issue an OFO to an NNS, NNL, SGT, or SGL customer who makes summer season

withdrawals within the same 10% limit for five consecutive days. The

customer will have 24 hours to either restrict deliveries or increase

pipeline receipts, or enter the penalty situation.

 

(i) Texas Gas shall notify the Customer, and may issue an OFO, in the event a

NNS, NNL, SGT, or SGL customer utilizes its allocated shoulder month

flexibility for thirteen (13) days during the month. The customer will

then have two additional days of flexibility during the month. Beyond

these two days, the customer will either have to increase pipeline

receipts or decrease deliveries, or enter the penalty situation if an OFO

has been issued.

 

(j) In the event receipts in segments of a Supply Lateral exceed scheduled

receipts and the capacity of the segment, so that high system pressures

back off scheduled receipt quantities, Texas Gas may issue an OFO to all

Point(s) of Receipt and operators in the affected segment of the Supply

Lateral stating that a high pressure condition exists. All such operators

will be required to check their tenders into receipt points on the

affected portion of the system. Those operators who are tendering more

than their scheduled volumes will have 4 hours to make needed adjustments,

or enter the penalty situation. An OFO issued pursuant to this Section

18(k) will be canceled by Texas Gas when the high pressure condition

described above has been corrected.

 

(k) In the event there is a need for Texas Gas to engage in routine and normal

maintenance of the system, to undertake repairs and replacements of lines

of pipe, to schedule DOT compliance activities, to install taps, to make

pig runs, to test storage fields, to test equipment, to check or change

compressor internals, or to engage in other similar actions affecting the

capacity of any portions of the system of Texas Gas, Texas Gas may issue

OFO's pursuant to this Section of the General Terms and Conditions to

inform all customers under all of Texas Gas' applicable rate schedules of

such planned maintenance or other activities that will affect the capacity

of any portions of the system, explaining in detail the action which

affects the portion of the system and the portion of the system affected.

An order issued pursuant to this Section 18(k) will contain an estimate of

the time, duration, and impact of the activity. This provision is in

addition to, but not coextensive with, the force majeure provision

contained in Section 25.5 of the General Terms and Conditions of Texas

Gas' FERC Gas Tariff. An event of force majeure may affect deliveries,

but not trigger the need for an operational flow order pursuant to this

Section 18(k). An order issued pursuant to this Section 18(k) shall be

canceled when such planned maintenance or other activities have been

completed. Texas Gas will post on its Internet Website each month a

schedule of anticipated routine maintenance which may affect service for

the upcoming month.
