GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

5. CAPACITY RELEASE AND REASSIGNMENT

 

All capacity releases and reassignments of peaking

storage service under Rate Schedule PKS will be made

according to the general procedures stated in the General

Terms and Conditions of Part 1 of this tariff. However,

releases of capacity during the storage cycle will be

subject to the inherent operational characteristics of the

reservoirs, the operational constraints on Questar's system

at the time of the release and all applicable FERC-

certificated requirements.

 

Questar may issue operational flow orders (OFO)

prohibiting or requiring withdrawal and injection of gas, if

necessary, to protect the integrity of the reservoirs, to

test the facilities, to ensure needed deliverability, to

cure storage account balances or to deal with any

operational difficulties. Operational difficulties include,

for example, well freeze-up, malfunction of a compressor,

loss of pressure, coning of an acquifer reservoir,

dehydration failure at the storage facility or injection or

withdrawal of gas by shipper in excess of scheduled

nomination. A shipper shall be afforded reasonable

opportunity consistent with existing operational conditions

to respond to Questar's OFO.

 

OFOs issued to a single class of shippers, will be

tendered through Questline. OFOs issued to individual

shippers will be posted on Questar's Informational Postings

and Questar will support further notification, to be

designated by shipper, through the following channels: (1)

up to two internet e-mail addresses provided by shipper or

(2) additional electronic notification designated by

shipper.

 

6. EXERCISE OF RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

Upon expiration of the term of the peaking storage

service agreement, an existing shipper shall have the right

of first refusal as defined in the General Terms and

Conditions of Part 1 of this tariff.

 

7. CREDITWORTHINESS

Questar shall not be required to perform peaking

storage service for any shipper who fails to satisfy the

creditworthiness criteria stated in the General Terms and

Conditions of Part 1 of this tariff.
