GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

6. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDERS (OFOs)

 

6.1 Trunkline will have the right to issue an OFO to any Shipper, OBA

Party or TABS-1 Party when, in Trunkline's reasonable judgment,

such OFO is required to alleviate conditions which threaten system

integrity, safety or reliability of service or to ensure

compliance with the provisions contained in this Tariff. An OFO

may be issued on a contract basis or on all or a portion of the

system. An OFO may be issued to a particular Shipper, OBA Party

or TABS-1 Party creating the need for the OFO or to Shippers, OBA

Parties or TABS-1 Parties on all or part of the system when in the

absence of such Shipper's, OBA Party's or TABS-1 Party's action an

OFO would not be required. When an OFO is issued, Trunkline will

endeavor to minimize the Shippers, OBA Parties and TABS-1 Parties

and Quantities affected. An OFO will not be issued to protect

interruptible service.

 

Examples of conditions which may cause OFOs to be issued

include, but are not limited to:

 

(A) Actual receipts exceeding scheduled receipts causing high

pressure to back off scheduled receipts;

 

(B) Unscheduled pipeline maintenance and repairs affecting

capacity;

 

(C) Non-compliance with the balancing requirements of any service

where such non-compliance threatens Trunkline's system

integrity; and

 

(D) When the applicable Tolerance Level has not been exceeded by

an individual Shipper, OBA Party or TABS-1 Party, but

pipeline operations require tighter Tolerance Levels.

 

6.2 Prior to issuing an OFO, Trunkline will take all reasonable

actions to minimize the issuance and adverse consequences of the

OFO. These actions may include, but are not limited to, requiring

firm Shippers to utilize primary Points of Receipt and Delivery,

limiting Shippers, OBA Parties or TABS-1 Parties to the hourly

flow rate and limitations in accordance with the provisions of

this Tariff and the Service Agreement, and imposing daily

scheduling charges on Points of Receipt upon twenty-four (24)

hours notice in accordance with Section 5.1(E) herein.
