GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
34. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDER (OFO) PROCEDURES (Continued)
Transporter will post information, as soon as possible, about the
status of operational variables that will determine when an OFO will
begin and end. Transporter will post a notice on its Internet website
informing parties when any OFO in effect will be cancelled.
Following the issuance of an OFO, Transporter will post information
on the factors that caused the OFO to be issued and then lifted as
soon as it is available.
34.4 Except in cases where the curtailment of interruptible services would
not alleviate the causes and conditions necessitating the issuance of
an OFO, Transporter will, where practicable, curtail interruptible
services prior to issuing an OFO. Transporter shall not be required
to curtail interruptible services to individual Shippers when
curtailment of service to those Shippers would not affect the OFO.
34.5 Upon the issuance of an OFO by Transporter, it shall be incumbent
upon affected parties to adjust receipts or deliveries of gas as
directed within the time frame specified in the OFO. Failure to
comply in a timely fashion with an OFO may result in Transporter
adjusting requests for confirmation from receipt or delivery points
or Transporter using flow control (where available) to immediately
interrupt all or a portion of a party's service and/or cause a party
to incur a penalty based on the higher of $25/Dth or a price per Dth
equal to two times the midpoint price reported for Malin, Oregon as
published in the daily price survey by Platts Gas Daily for all
quantities received or delivered that are outside of the range(s)
permitted under the OFO for the day on which the penalty is incurred.
The payment of unauthorized overrun penalties does not create the
right to exceed the levels established by an OFO.
34.6 In the event a party does not respond to an OFO and Transporter
believes it is necessary to take actions such as buying or selling
gas to maintain system integrity or to prevent interrupting service
to another Shipper, Transporter shall have the right, but not the
obligation, to take such remedial actions as it deems necessary. If
Transporter takes these actions, it shall be made whole by the
nonresponding party for all costs that Transporter incurs either
through retention of penalty revenues or by direct reimbursement by
party. Transporter shall not be liable for any costs or damages
incurred by any party in complying with an OFO.
