GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

31.4 OPERATIONAL CONTROL SEQUENCE

 

(a) In the event KMLP's observations or projections

indicate that a situation is or may be developing in which adequate

pressures may not be maintained or the overall operational integrity

of its System (or any portion thereof) could be threatened, or in the

event that such a situation actually occurs, KMLP is empowered by this

Section to take action to alleviate this situation. In responding to

such a situation, KMLP shall first apply the Advisory Action

procedures of Section 31.5. If such measures are not sufficient to

address the situation fully, KMLP shall next employ Operational Flow

Orders as provided in Section 31.6. In the event Operational Flow

Orders alone are not adequate, KMLP may invoke the Critical Time

procedures set out in Section 31.7. The procedures set out in such

provisions, and their sequencing, are intended to be applied only to

the extent any of the specific actions indicated, or such sequencing,

would tend to alleviate the situation to be addressed. In issuing

Advisory Actions, Operational Flow Orders or a Critical Time, KMLP

shall describe the conditions and the specific responses required from

the affected parties. Nothing herein shall preclude KMLP from

bypassing any of the above procedures if, in its judgment, the

situation so requires. KMLP will keep Shippers advised through

postings on the Informational Posting portion of its Interactive

Website on the status of the situation.

 

(b) To the extent practicable, KMLP shall direct its

actions hereunder to Shippers creating or anticipated to create the

situation to be addressed, including taking actions on a point-

specific basis or at specific locations on the System. Shippers will

endeavor to adjust nominations on every scheduling cycle at Receipt

Points or Delivery Points or both to provide a balance of receipt and

delivery volumes so that imbalances do not occur. In addition,

Shippers will endeavor to cure existing imbalances that can be

reasonably attributed to their FTS or ITS contracts as directed by

KMLP.

 

31.5 ADVISORY ACTIONS

 

In the event KMLP determines that action is required to

avoid a situation in which System pressure is not maintained or in

which the overall operational integrity of the System or any portion

of the System is jeopardized, KMLP may take the Advisory Actions set

out herein to forestall the development of such a situation.
