14. ACTION ALERTS AND OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDERS (continued)

 

14.7 OFOs: In the event that, in Steckman Ridge's judgment, immediate

action is required to alleviate conditions which threaten to

impair reliable firm service, to maintain operations at the

pressures required to provide efficient and reliable service, to

have adequate Gas supplies in the system to deliver on demand, to

maintain services to all firm Customers and for all firm services,

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

Steckman Ridge may forego the action described in Section 14.6 and

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

operator does not respond to an Action Alert issued pursuant to

Section 14.6, (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, Steckman Ridge may issue an OFO pursuant

to this Section 14.7 or take unilateral action, including the

curtailment of firm service, to maintain the operational integrity

of Steckman Ridge's system. For purposes of this Section 14, the

operational integrity of Steckman Ridge'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, and the

maintenance (on a reliable and operationally sound basis) of total

system deliverability and the quality of Gas delivered. Steckman

Ridge shall post a notice on its Internet Web site specifying the

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

extent such factors are known. Steckman Ridge shall also provide

such notification via e-mail communication to those Customers and

point operators who have submitted a request, and provided e-mail

address information for at least one contact person, via Steckman

Ridge's Internet Web site to receive e-mail notification of

Critical Notices issued by Steckman Ridge.

 

14.8 Termination of Action Alert or OFO: Steckman Ridge shall lift any

effective Action Alert or OFO promptly upon the cessation of

operating conditions that caused the relevant system problem.

After Steckman Ridge has lifted the Action Alert or the OFO,

Steckman Ridge shall post a notice on its Internet 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.

Steckman Ridge 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 Steckman Ridge's Internet Web site to receive e-mail

notification of Critical Notices issued by Steckman Ridge.
