11.3 Daily Interruption or Allocation of Transportation Service and Contract Storage

Services Due to Force Majeure or Operating Conditions (Continued)

(c) In the event of an allocation under Section 11.3(b), Buyer's reduced contract

entitlements shall be used for purposes of the overrun provisions of Section 18

hereof and Buyer's Responsibilities provisions in Seller's Rate Schedules FT,

FTN, FT-G, FDLS and SS-1 Section 7(c) Transportation Service. Notice provided by

Seller to Buyer of such reduced contract quantity entitlement shall be made

facsimile, e-mail and/or telephone, as requested by Buyer.

 

(d) In cases where Buyer is unable to deliver transportation gas to Seller, Buyer's

scheduled quantity shall be reduced to the gas quantity tendered by Buyer to

Seller, as independently verified and confirmed by Seller based on the best

information available to Seller. Such reductions to scheduled quantities will be

made in accordance with Section 28.4 of the General Terms and Conditions. In the

event of an occurrence under this Section, Buyer's entitlement shall be reduced

to the scheduled quantity and such reduced entitlement shall be used for purposes

of the overrun provisions of Section 18 hereof and Buyer's Responsibilities

provisions in Seller's Rate Schedules FT, FTN, FT-G, FDLS and SS-1 Section 7(c)

Transportation Service; provided, however, that Buyer shall be entitled to

maintain its full contract entitlement, or any lesser portion of its contract

entitlement if Buyer or Buyer's Supplier guarantees the delivery into Seller's

system of the gas supplies which Seller cannot verify and confirm and which are

sufficient to supply Buyer's full entitlement or some portion thereof, and if

Buyer or Buyer's Supplier agrees in writing to be liable for any shortfall in the

guaranteed supplies in the same manner as an overrun under Section 18 hereof and

Buyer's Responsibilities provisions in Seller's Rate Schedules FT, FTN, FT-G,

FDLS and SS-1 Section 7(c) Transportation Service.

 

11.4 Relief From Sales Service Allocation In Emergency Situations

 

In the event an emergency situation, including an environmental emergency, should

arise in which supplemental deliveries of gas are required in order to forestall

irreparable injury to life or property, Seller shall have the right to adjust

allocations made pursuant to Sections 11.2(b) upon receipt of verified proof that such

an emergency exists and Buyer advises Seller fully of the steps it has taken to meet

such emergency. Any gas quantities received by Buyer under this Section shall not be

considered overrun volumes. In no event, however shall the aggregate of Seller's

deliveries to such Buyer exceed the Buyer's authorized maximum daily quantity of gas.

 

When Buyer declares an emergency situation in order to forestall irreparable injury to

life or property, Buyer shall attest: (1) to the nature and extent of the emergency;

(2) that all sources of gas supply available to Buyer, including peak-shaving and

storage, have been used to the fullest extent possible; (3) that all interruptible

services of Buyer have been curtailed during such emergency situation; (4) that no

alternate fuel could be used to prevent such emergency situation; and (5) to a

detailed plan to prevent a recurrence of similar emergency conditions.
