20.5 Critical Time Notice.
A. A Critical Time 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; (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; (3) when system pressure on one or more pipeline segments
is falling and approaching a level or is expected to fall and approach a level
that is at or below the minimum that TransColorado considers necessary for
system integrity or to fulfill its firm contractual obligations; (4) when
system pressure on one or more pipeline segments 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 TransColorado's facilities may be safely operated;
or (5) at other times when TransColorado 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
TransColorado'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. TransColorado shall notify
Shippers on TransColorado's Interactive Website as to the reason(s) why a
Critical Time was declared.
B. TransColorado shall advise Shippers on its system if it is
declaring a Critical Time, as described in Section 20.5A above, and shall
specify the nature of the situation creating the Critical Time.
C. TransColorado may issue OFOs as described in this Section
20.5 during a Critical Time.
D. All quantities tendered on a net contract basis to
TransColorado and/or taken by Shipper on a daily basis in violation of
TransColorado's OFOs issued during a Critical Time shall constitute
unauthorized receipts or deliveries for which a charge of $25 per Dth plus the
San Juan Basin spot price of gas, as determined in Section 12.3 of these
General Terms and Conditions, for the days the OFO is in place shall be
assessed and the resulting imbalance will be reduced to zero.
