GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)
12.12 Operational Flow Orders
Kansas Pipeline may issue operational flow orders to
Shippers under any firm or interruptible Rate Schedule
as it deems necessary to protect the integrity of its
system or any portion thereof. Kansas Pipeline's actions
with respect to operational flow orders are to be
reasonable, objective, and nondiscriminatory.
No Shipper that is subject to an operational flow order
shall be required to exceed its contractual rights or
obligations under its agreement with Kansas Pipeline.
Kansas Pipeline shall not be liable for any resulting
damages, costs, or expenses incurred as a result of
such flow order unless such damages, costs, or expenses
result from the negligence or willful misconduct by
Kansas Pipeline. The types of operational flow orders
described below are illustrative and are not intended to
be all-inclusive. If any Shipper does not follow the
operational orders issued hereunder, such Shipper, in
addition to all other remedies, shall be liable for any
resulting damages, costs, or expenses and will indemnify
Kansas Pipeline from any such damages, costs and
Expenses to Kansas Pipeline or any other party.
Operational flow orders will be issued by 2:00 p.m.
Central time. Nomination changes must be made by 8:00
a.m. on the gas day following issuance of the operational
flow order. The operational flow order will be effective
one gas day later (second gas day after issuance of OFO),
unless otherwise provided in the order. Kansas Pipeline
may make OFO's effective with a shorter notice if
necessary to protect the integrity of its system.
Kansas Pipeline recognizes that the success of a seven (7)
day a week, twenty-four (24) hour a day nomination process
is dependent on the availability of Kansas Pipeline and
Shipper's scheduling personnel on a similar basis. Kansas
Pipeline and shipper contacts need not be at their ordinary
work sites, but should be available by telephone or beeper.
If Kansas Pipeline is unable to contact any Shipper because
that Shipper's contact person(s) is unavailable, such Shipper
shall be solely responsible for any consequences arising
from such failure of communications.
