GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)
14.9 Liability of Transporter: Transporter shall not be liable for any costs incurred
by any Shipper/Balancing Party in complying with an OFO. Transporter shall not be
responsible for any damages that result from any interruption in
Shipper's/Balancing Party's service that is a result of a Shipper's/Balancing
Party's failure to comply promptly and fully with an OFO, and the non-complying
Shipper/Balancing Party shall indemnify Transporter against any claims of
responsibility. However, Transporter shall use reasonable efforts to minimize any
such costs or damages.
14.10 Unilateral Action: In the event that (1) Shipper(s)/Balancing Party(s) does not
respond to an OFO, or (2) the actions taken thereunder are insufficient to correct
the system problem for which the OFO was issued, or (3) there is insufficient time
to carry out the procedures with respect to Action Alerts or Balancing Alerts,
Transporter may periodically take unilateral action, including the curtailment of
firm service, to maintain the operational integrity of Transporter's system (or any
portion thereof). For purposes of this section, the operational integrity of
Transporter'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 (or any portion thereof),
and the maintenance (on a reliable and operationally sound basis) of total system
deliverability and the quality of gas delivered.
