GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

(G) In the event there is a need for Pipeline to engage in routine and

normal maintenance of the system, to undertake repairs and

replacements of lines of pipe, to schedule U.S. DOT compliance

activities, to install taps, to make pig runs, to test storage

fields, to test equipment, to check or change compressor internals

for different flow conditions, or to engage in other similar

actions affecting the capacity of any portions of the system of

Pipeline, Pipeline shall issue operational flow orders pursuant to

this Section 4.3(G) of the General Terms and Conditions to inform

all Customers under all of Pipeline's applicable rate schedules of

such planned maintenance or other activities that will affect the

capacity of any portions of the system, explaining in detail the

action which affects the portion of the system and the portion of

the system affected. An order issued pursuant to this Section

4.3(G) will contain an estimate of the time, duration, and impact

of the activity. Pipeline shall exercise due diligence to

schedule routine repair and maintenance so as to minimize

disruptions of service to Customers. This provision is in

addition to, but not co-extensive with, the force majeure

provision contained in the General Terms and Conditions of

Pipeline's FERC Gas Tariff. An event of force majeure may affect

deliveries, but not trigger the need for an operational flow order

pursuant to this Section 4.3(G). An order issued pursuant to this

Section 4.3(G) shall be canceled when such planned maintenance or

other activities have been completed.

 

(H) In the event the delivery pressure to one or more Customers drops

below the pressure provided in the service agreement(s) of the

Customer(s), Pipeline may immediately issue an operational flow

order pursuant to this Section 4.3(H) of the General Terms and

Conditions requiring that deliveries under all of Pipeline's rate

schedules be made on a uniform hourly rate effective three (3)

hours after issuance of the operational flow order. If only one

segment of Pipeline's system has been affected by low pressure,

the operational flow order shall be limited to that section of the

system. For the duration of this operational flow order,

increases in scheduled delivery quantities within affected

segments of Pipeline's system will be made on a prospective basis

only.

 

(I) In the event total remaining storage inventories are reduced to

30% of maximum Storage Inventory at any time, Pipeline may issue

an operational flow order pursuant to this Section 4.3(I) of the

General Terms and Conditions requiring imbalances incurred during

the term of this operational flow order attributable to deliveries

in excess of scheduled delivery quantities or receipts of less

than scheduled receipt quantities must be scheduled as gas due to

Pipeline on the day following posting of such operational

imbalance on the LINKþ System and for imbalances due Pipeline that

were incurred prior to the issuance of an operational flow
