GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

34. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDER (OFO) PROCEDURES

 

34.1 Transporter, in its sole discretion, will have the right to issue

OFOs when in its judgment it is necessary to maintain or restore the

operational integrity of its system.

 

34.2 Whenever possible, Transporter will identify the party(ies) [including

but not limited to Shippers or OBA Operators] whose actions require

Transporter to issue an OFO and will limit the applicability of the OFO

to such party(ies). If Transporter is unable to identify the specific

parties whose actions require issuance of an OFO, or if issuance of an

OFO to discrete parties is insufficient to alleviate the conditions

requiring the issuance of such OFO, Transporter may issue an additional

OFO applicable to all parties on a nondiscriminatory basis.

 

34.3 All OFOs will be posted on Transporter's Internet website, to be

followed by notification of affected parties that will set forth the

causes or conditions necessitating the OFO. Notification will be

through an affected party's choice of Electronic Delivery mechanism(s)

set forth in Section 22.2 of these General Terms & Conditions.

 

Transporter will issue an OFO as expeditiously as is reasonable and

practicable under the circumstances. When practicable, Transporter will

provide sufficient notice to affected parties in order to accommodate

scheduling requirements on upstream pipelines. Each OFO will contain the

following provisions:

 

(a) time and date of issuance;

 

(b) the nature of the operational situation necessitating the OFO (high

inventory, low inventory, etc.);

 

(c) time that the OFO is considered to be effective (if no time is

specified, the OFO will be effective immediately);

 

(d) duration of the OFO (if not specified, the OFO will be effective

until further notice);

 

(e) the quantity of gas required to remedy the operational condition

requiring the issuance of the OFO; and

 

(f) any other term Transporter may reasonably require to ensure the

effectiveness of the OFO.
