2.40 Critical Period

 

(a) A critical period may be declared (1) when the system pressure

on Transporter's pipeline system is falling and approaching a

level, or is expected to fall and approach a level, that is at

or below the minimum that Transporter considers necessary for

system integrity or to fulfill its firm contractual

obligations; or (2) when system pressure is rising and

approaching a level, or is expected to rise and approach a

level, at which Transporter may be unable to receive scheduled

deliveries from interconnecting pipelines; or (3) at any other

not be able, to fulfill its firm contractual obligations or
