GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

34. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDER (OFO) PROCEDURES (Continued)

 

34.3 (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.
