specified quantity of natural gas, requested by Shipper and approved

by Natural, on the designated date(s) from designated Delivery

Point(s) set forth in Shipper's LPS RO and the Shipper's redelivery

3. PRIORITY OF SERVICE

 

(a) Service under Rate Schedule LPS is provided on an

interruptible basis. Priorities of service for the purposes of

scheduling and curtailment shall be governed by Section 5 of the

General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff. Under this Rate

Schedule LPS, Natural shall only park gas or loan gas to the extent

Natural determines that such actions will not adversely affect its

ability to satisfy any of its firm service obligations or to meet

system operational needs. Natural may, in a non-discriminatory

manner, interrupt or decline to schedule any or all of the services

hereunder and, if such actions are required to avoid interference

with firm service or to protect the integrity of the system, will do

so prior to invoking the procedures of Section 23, Operational

Control, of the General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff.

 

(b) In the event it is necessary to interrupt, curtail or

suspend service under any LPS RO because of operational conditions

or to satisfy obligations with a higher priority, Natural shall

provide actual notice to Shipper. In that event, Shipper must comply

with the directive(s) contained in Natural's notification within the

time specified in the notice, consistent with the remainder of this

subsection (b).

 

(1) Without limitation of the foregoing, Natural shall

to the extent practicable provide such notice effective no later

than the next day prior to declaring Critical Time or issuing

Operational Flow Orders under Section 23 of the General Terms and

Conditions of this Tariff, Operational Control, if Natural

reasonably determines that doing so would facilitate system

operations and minimize the frequency and severity of Critical Time

or Operational Flow Orders in the affected region(s).
