29.6 CRITICAL TIME OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDER

 

(a) A Critical Time Operational Flow Order may be declared (1)

when the total physical receipts to all or a portion of the

system are approaching or expected to approach, a level that

is in excess of the total physical deliveries plus the

maximum volumes of Gas Transporter is able to inject into

Transporter's storage without jeopardizing the integrity of

Transporter's storage facilities; (2) when the total

physical deliveries from all or a portion of the system are

approaching or expected to approach, a level that is in

excess of the total physical receipts and the maximum volume

of Gas available to be withdrawn from Transporter's storage

without jeopardizing the integrity of Transporter's storage

facilities; (3) when system pressure on one or more pipeline

segment(s) is falling and approaching a level or is expected

to fall and approach a level that is at or below the minimum

that Transporter considers necessary for system integrity or

to fulfill its firm contractual obligations; (4) when system

pressure on one or more pipeline segment(s) is rising and

approaching a level or is expected to rise and approach a

level that is at or above the maximum pressure at which

Transporter's facilities may be safely operated; or (5) at

other times when Transporter is unable or anticipates it may

not be able to fulfill its firm contractual obligations or

otherwise when necessary to maintain the overall operational

integrity of all or a portion of Transporter's system. A

Critical Time may not be declared on all or a portion of the

system for the purpose of maintaining Interruptible services

on that portion of the system, but Interruptible Gas may

flow at times or on portions of the system when such flow

would not violate any operational control restrictions or

provisions of this Tariff. Transporter shall notify

Shippers through the informational postings portion of

Transporter's Web Site as to the reason(s) why a Critical

Time was declared.

 

(b) Transporter shall advise Shippers on its system if it is

declaring a Critical Time, as described in Section 29.6a of

these General Terms and Conditions, and shall specify the

nature of the situation creating the Critical Time.
