7. PRIORITY OF SERVICE AND CURTAILMENT

 

1. Transporter shall have the right to not schedule part or all of a

requested transportation, and/or curtail or to discontinue

services, in whole or in part, on all or a portion of its system

at any time for reasons of Force Majeure or when, in Transporter's

sole discretion, capacity or operating conditions so require.

Transporter shall provide Shipper such notice of such curtailment

as is reasonable under the circumstances. Routine repair and

maintenance is not deemed an emergency situation or an unexpected

loss of capacity and will be scheduled by Transporter in a manner

to avoid, wherever possible, the disruption of confirmed service.

 

2. If due to any cause whatsoever Transporter is unable to deliver

the quantities of Gas which Shipper has nominated pursuant to

section 5 and Transporter has scheduled pursuant to section 6, and

which Shippers would have received if such disability did not

exist, then Transporter shall order curtailment by all Shippers

affected in the following manner to the extent necessary to remove

the effect of the disability. In effecting a curtailment,

Transporter may, at its discretion, allow lower priority Gas to

remain flowing in any instance where that would result in a lesser

impact on the curtailment of higher priority Gas than would

otherwise occur. In all other instances, curtailment shall be:

 

(a) first, Shippers whose service was scheduled pursuant to

section 6.1(c). Transporter will curtail by price from

lowest to highest, except curtailment will be pro rata on

scheduled quantities among Shippers paying the same rate,

and recognizing that Shippers paying the maximum rate will

be curtailed last; and

 

(b) second, Shippers whose service was scheduled pursuant to

sections 6.1(a) and 6.1(b). Transporter will curtail on a

pro rata basis on scheduled quantities among all other

similarly situated Shippers.

 

3. If the need for curtailment is caused by an event affecting only a

specific Receipt/Delivery Point, curtailment will be (i) limited

to Shippers scheduled at such Receipt/Delivery Point; and (ii)

applied to those Shippers in accordance with the priorities set

forth in section 7.2 above, except that Shippers for which such

Point is a Primary Point will have priority over Shippers for

which such Point is an Alternate Point.
