GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
9. SYSTEM MANAGEMENT (Continued)
(e) MRT may issue an Operational Flow Order requiring
Customers to increase receipts into MRT's system at the NGPL-
Clinton County and Trunkline-Clay County receipt points to
replicate the system flows necessary to preserve the overall
operational integrity of the system. MRT may need to issue
Operational Flow Orders at these critical points at any time.
Each Customer's pro rata share of any such receipt requirement
shall be based on the ratio of its Primary Receipt Point MDQ at
those receipt points to the total Primary Receipt Point MDQ of all
Customers at those receipt points. If a Customer does not
increase receipts into MRT's system at the NGPL-Clinton County and
Trunkline-Clay County receipt points in response to an Operational
Flow Order issued pursuant to this subsection, the Customer shall
not be subject to a penalty; however, any diminution of MRT's
East Line deliverability of any amount which results from the
Customer's failure to comply with such an Operational Flow Order
shall be borne by the noncomplying Customer(s). At all other
receipt points, in response to Operational Flow Orders, Customers
must increase receipts up to their Receipt Point MDQs to the
extent that they have sufficient gas supplies available to enable
them to comply with such Operational Flow Orders.
(f) Any Customer which fails to adjust its receipts and/or
deliveries in compliance with an Operational Flow Order, subject
to the other provisions of this section, shall be assessed a
penalty of $10.00 per MMBtu for any daily variance from its
nomination, as revised by the Operational Flow Order, of the
greater of 3% or 1,000 MMBtu. Variances which improve system
integrity will not be penalized.
(g) Any Customer failing to abide by an Operational Flow
Order issued pursuant to this Section shall be subject to any
applicable penalties, shall be responsible for damages, and shall
indemnify MRT against any claims by third parties resulting from
the Customer's failure to comply with the Operational Flow Order.
