GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)
VIII.PRESSURE OF GAS DELIVERY AND OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDERS
1. Pressure of Deliveries
With respect to all deliveries by Transporter, Transporter shall make deliveries at
Shipper's designated delivery points as nearly as practicable at Transporter's line
pressure; provided that the minimum pressure shall be as stated in Shipper's
Transportation Agreement and shall not be less than 100 pounds per square inch gauge.
2. Operational Flow Orders
(a) Due to the effects of changes in weather, gas demands, flowing gas supplies and/or
other factors, it may be necessary for Transporter to informally, via telephone or
facsimile, request adjustments in the portfolio of flowing gas supplies of a
Shipper(s)/Operator(s) to accommodate the demands on Transporter's system.
Shippers without 24-hour gas monitoring capability shall provide Transporter with
the name and telephone number of a representative whom Transporter may contact at
any time to request such adjustments. If Transporter does not receive full
cooperation from its informal request(s), it may be necessary for Transporter,
after making an informal request, to issue Operational Flow Orders (OFO) to control
the situation(s). All OFOs will be posted on Transporter's Electronic Bulletin
Board system, to be followed by a facsimile, written notice or other mutually
agreeable means of communication to affected Shippers that will set forth the
causes or conditions necessitating the OFO.
(b) Transporter shall issue OFOs as necessary to maintain firm deliveries of scheduled
quantities. Additional circumstances under which Transporter may determine that
OFOs may be issued include, but are not limited to:
(i) Responding to an event of force majeure;
(ii) Accommodating maintenance and repairs;
(iii) Ensuring current and future maintenance of line pack;
(iv) Ensuring the availability of firm services to all Shippers; and
(v) Responding to any event which Transporter believes in its sole judgment
may jeopardize the integrity of its system.
Transporter shall issue all OFOs on a non-discriminatory basis.
