GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

31.7 CRITICAL TIME

 

(a) KMLP shall advise Shippers on its System if it is

declaring a Critical Time, and shall specify the nature of the

situation creating the Critical Time. KMLP shall provide as much

advance notice as practicable of any declaration of Critical Time.

 

(b) 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 KMLP can transport without jeopardizing the integrity of

its facilities; (2) when System pressure is falling and approaching a

level or is expected to fall and approach a level that is at or below

the minimum that KMLP considers necessary for System integrity or to

fulfill its firm contractual obligations; (3) 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 KMLP's facilities may be safely operated; or (4) at

other times when KMLP 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

KMLP'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 Gas under interruptible service 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. KMLP shall notify Shippers on the Informational Postings

portion of its Interactive Website as to the reason(s) why a Critical

Time was declared.

 

(c) Notice of a Critical Time will be posted on the

Informational Postings portion of KMLP's Interactive Website. KMLP

will also provide notice via e-mail to Shippers which have provided e-

mail addresses. KMLP will endeavor to post such notice before 4:00

p.m. Central Time or otherwise will endeavor to notify Shippers via

its Interactive Website by 4:00 p.m. Central Time that they should

check its Interactive Website again at a specified later time to see

whether a Critical Time will be in effect for the next Day. KMLP must

attempt to give actual notice of a Critical Time via telefax or

telephone (provided a Shipper has given the numbers to KMLP as

required in Section 31 of these General Terms and Conditions) at least

four (4) hours prior to the start of the Day before a Critical Time

will be effective as to a Shipper. Such notice shall specify the
