GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
20. SYSTEM OPERATION - (Continued)
(j) Notice and posting shall include but not be limited to
(i) mandated specific actions, (ii) indication of voluntary actions, (iii)
identification of the parties subject to the OFO, (iv) the time the OFO
will become effective, (v) the estimated duration of the OFO, (vi) whether
TransColorado is overdelivered or underdelivered, (vii) whether actual net
receipts need to be equal to or greater than actual deliveries or actual
deliveries need to be equal to or greater than actual net receipts, (viii)
whether or not authorized overruns are acceptable and (ix) 24 hour contact
number for TransColorado during the duration of the OFO.
(k) In addition to the OFOs described in subsections (a-j)
above, TransColorado may issue OFOs as follows:
(i) In order to improve system operations,
TransColorado may require any Shipper that has a variance of twenty
percent(20%) or more between actual deliveries to TransColorado at a
Receipt Point and the confirmed nomination at that Receipt Point to
conform the deliveries to the confirmed nomination as of the day that
commences with the effectiveness of the OFO.
(ii) TransColorado may also require Shippers to keep
any variances between actual flows and confirmed nominations at all of the
Receipt Points or Delivery Points under each Shipper's Agreements, which
are to the detriment of TransColorado's system, within a ten percent (10%)
tolerance. If a Shipper agrees to keep all other Shippers at a Delivery
Point whole with their nominations (Swing Shipper), such other Shippers'
confirmed nominations and actual takes at that point will be included in
the total confirmed nominations and the total actual deliveries of the
Swing Shipper at all Delivery Points for the purposes of determining the
Swing Shipper's variance.
(iii) A Shipper shall not be subject to overrun
penalties and charges from TransColorado or imbalance charges with respect
to any action taken in conformance with an OFO issued by TransColorado
during a Critical or non-Critical Time.
20.6 Unilateral Action. In the event that the actions under Sections
20.3 through 20.5 are inadequate or there is insufficient time to carry
out such procedures, TransColorado may periodically have to take
unilateral action to maintain system pressure and preserve the overall
operational integrity of TransColorado's system (or any portion thereof).
TransColorado is authorized to use all the resources of its system to such
