22.3 Operational Procedure Provisions

 

A. If Transporter determines, in the exercise of its reasonable

judgment, that sufficient supplies are not being received by

Transporter at the receipt point(s) for transportation to a Shipper,

then Transporter may, at Transporter's option, unilaterally

re-schedule, upon twenty-four (24) hours notice by Transporter to

Shipper, on a prospective basis only, the quantities nominated by a

Shipper so as to conform to the quantities being received at such

point(s), or temporarily suspend deliveries to the Shipper. If

scheduled quantities are not being taken at the delivery point(s),

then Transporter may, at Transporter's option, unilaterally

re-schedule, upon twenty-four (24) hours notice by Transporter to

Shipper, on a prospective basis only, the quantities nominated by a

Shipper so as to conform to the quantities being taken at such

point(s), or temporarily suspend receipts of gas from the Shipper.

Such twenty-four (24) hours notice shall not be applicable in the

event of operational distress, which shall be defined as including

any situation which prevents Transporter from operating in a safe and

efficient manner, consistent with applicable laws, rules,

regulations, standard industry operating practices, and Transporter's

Tariff, or from maintaining the integrity of pipeline operations;

provided, however, Transporter shall not unilaterally reschedule

volumes without twenty-four hours' notice unless such rescheduling is

reasonably anticipated to reduce or eliminate said operational

distress.

 

B. An operational flow order is an order issued to alleviate conditions,

inter alia, which threaten or could threaten the safe operations or

system integrity, of the transportation service providers system or

to maintain operations required to provide efficient and reliable

firm service. Whenever a Transportation Service Provider experiences

these conditions, any pertinent order should be referred to as an

Operational Flow Order.
