GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

(4) In the event that, in Pipeline's judgment, immediate action is required to

alleviate conditions which threaten to impair reliable firm service, to

maintain pipeline operations at the pressures required to provide an

efficient and reliable firm service, to have adequate Gas supplies in the

system to deliver on demand (including injection of Gas into the mainline,

providing line pack, and injecting Gas into storage at the right place and

time), and to maintain the system in balance for the foregoing purposes,

Pipeline may forego the action described in Section 4.3(A)(2) and

immediately issue an OFO. In the event that (1) Customer or point operator

does not respond to an Action Alert, (2) the actions taken thereunder are

insufficient to correct the system problem for which the Action Alert was

issued, or (3) there is insufficient time to carry out the procedures with

respect to Action Alerts, Pipeline may issue OFOs pursuant to Section

4.3(B) through 4.3(M) or take unilateral action, including the curtailment

of firm service, to maintain the operational integrity of Pipeline's system

(or any portion thereof). For purposes of this Section, the operational

integrity of Pipeline's system shall encompass the integrity of the

physical system and the preservation of physical assets and their

performance, the overall operating performance of the entire physical

system as an entity (or any portion thereof), and the maintenance (on a

reliable and operationally sound basis) of total system deliverability and

the quality of Gas delivered. Pipeline shall post a notice on its Web site

specifying the factors that caused the Action Alert or OFO to be issued, to

the extent such factors are known. Pipeline shall also provide such

notification via e-mail communication to those Customers who have submitted

a request, and provided e-mail address information for at least one contact

person, via Pipeline's Web site to receive e-mail notification of critical

notices issued by Pipeline, or in the event of known failure of Internet

notification, Pipeline will notify affected Customers by telefacsimile.

 

(5) Pipeline shall lift any effective Action Alert or OFO promptly upon the

cessation of operating conditions that caused the relevant system problem.

After Pipeline has lifted the Action Alert or the OFO, Pipeline shall post

a notice on its Web site specifying the factors that caused the Action

Alert or OFO to be issued and then lifted, to the extent such factors are

known. Pipeline shall also provide such notification via e-mail

communication to those Customers who have submitted a request, and provided

e-mail address information for at least one contact person, via Pipeline's

Web site to receive e-mail notification of critical notices issued by

Pipeline, or in the event of known failure of Internet notification,

Pipeline will notify affected Customers by telefacsimile.
