GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
(a) If on any Day ASC's capability to receive or deliver quantities is impaired so that ASC is
unable to receive or deliver all the quantities which are scheduled, then interruption of
service shall be implemented in the reverse order of priority set forth in Section 5.1.
If Firm Storage Service must be interrupted, interruption of service to firm storage
Customers shall be pro rata based on MDWQ, MDIQ, MSQ, Maximum Park Quantity or Maximum
Loan Quantity, as applicable. Interruption of service to Interruptible Customers under
Rate Schedules IP, IW, IL, ISS, and IHBS and to firm Customers utilizing Excess Injection
Gas and/or Excess Withdrawal Gas (pursuant to Section 2 of Rate Schedules FSS, FP and FL)
shall be based on the charges paid by Customer, with the transaction with the lowest net
revenue to ASC being interrupted first. Any ties shall be interrupted on a pro rata basis.
(b) ASC shall provide Customer as much advance notice of any interruption as is practicable
under the circumstances. Such notice shall be made by telephone, fax, e-mail or via the
Internet Web Site, park, wheel, loan, store, inject, withdraw, receive or deliver, as
applicable, and the estimated duration of the interruption.
(c) If interruption is required, ASC and Customer shall cooperate to the extent possible in
making adjustments to receipts, deliveries, injections or withdrawals to minimize injury
to any property or facilities.
5.4 Interruption Liability. ASC shall not be liable for any loss or damage to any person or
property caused, in whole or in part, by any interruption of service, except to the extent
caused solely by ASC's negligence or willful misconduct.
5.5 Action Alerts and Operational Flow Orders.
(a) Circumstances Warranting Issuance: As specified in this Section 5.5, ASC shall have the
right to issue Action Alerts or Operational Flow Orders ("OFOs") that require actions by
Customers in order (1) to alleviate conditions that threaten to impair reliable service,
(2) to maintain operations at the pressures required to provide efficient and reliable
services, (3) to have adequate Gas supplies in the system to deliver on demand, (4) to
maintain service to all firm shippers and for all firm services, and (5) to maintain
the system in balance for the foregoing purposes.
(b) Actions to be Taken to Avoid Issuance: ASC shall, to the extent practicable, take all
reasonable actions necessary to avoid issuing an Action Alert or OFO. Such actions shall
include, in order of priority (1) working with point operators to temporarily adjust
receipts and/or deliveries at relevant Point(s) of Receipt or Point(s) of Delivery,
(2) working with Customers and point operators to adjust scheduled flows on the system,
or (3) taking any other reasonable action designed to mitigate the system problem.
After taking all such reasonable actions to avoid issuing an Action Alert or OFO, ASC
will have the right to issue Action Alerts or OFOs, if necessary, in the circumstances
described in Section 5.5(a).
