notice within a delivery gas day, Transporter shall post a notice on its electronic

bulletin board and notify by E-Mail to all affected Shippers or the Shippers' contact

person that the Alert Day provisions of this section are in effect, indicating whether

posted in daily intervals that coincide with the delivery gas day.

 

Transportation Service Providers should provide affected parties with notification of

intraday bumps, operational flow orders and other critical notices through the

affected party's choice of Electronic Notice Delivery mechanism(s).

 

Unless the affected party and the Transportation Service Provider (TSP) have agreed to

exclusive notification via EDI/EDM, the affected party should provide the TSP with at

least one Internet E-mail address to be used for Electronic Notice Delivery of

intraday bumps, operational flow orders and other critical notices. The obligation of

the TSP to provide notification is waived until the above requirement has been met.

 

Transportation Service Providers should support the concurrent sending of electronic

notification of intraday bumps, operationally flow orders and other critical notices

to two Internet E-mail addresses for each affected party.

 

2. Conditions for Invoking Alert Day

Alert Day notices may be issued by Transporter when in its sole discretion, reasonably

exercised, Transporter determines that the pipeline is experiencing or may experience

in the next gas day high or low line pack operating conditions which threaten the

ability to render firm services. Alert Days will be used when Pack/Draft Notices and

other tools are reasonably perceived to be inappropriate to resolve the operating

situation. Alert Day notices may be issued in addition to other actions taken by

Transporter with regard to individual shippers, including issuance of Operational Flow

Orders and Pack/Draft Notices; however, such other actions are not required prior to

the issuance of an Alert Day notice. Transporter shall indicate in the Alert Day

Notice whether the notice applies system-wide or to an Affected Area. In addition,

Transporter shall post an Alert Day notice for any periods in which systemwide

curtailment orders are in effect pursuant to Section 17A. The Alert Day notice shall

indicate whether the alert condition applies to overages (Overage Alert Day) or

underages (Underage Alert Day) from Scheduled Deliveries.

Transporter may issue an Overage Alert Day notice herein for any days in which

Transporter has scheduled Market Area deliveries under Rate Schedule ITS-1 however,

Transporter shall interrupt previously scheduled Market Area service under Rate

Schedule ITS-1 prior to or simultaneously with invoking the Alert Day provisions under

this section when, in its sole discretion, reasonably exercised, Transporter

determines that restricting such service will assist in ameliorating the operating

condition.
