GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

19. OPERATIONAL CONTROL

 

19.1 GENERAL

 

(a) Stingray shall endeavor to maintain

adequate pressure throughout its System and

to preserve the overall operational

integrity of its System; provided, however,

that Stingray shall not be obligated to buy

or sell gas or to install additional

compression or otherwise modify its System

for these purposes. Operating personnel

for Shippers and other entities which are

physically taking delivery of gas from

Stingray or tendering gas to Stingray shall

cooperate with Stingray in furtherance of

this Section. Each Shipper shall designate

one or more persons [but not more than two

(2) primary and two (2) backup persons] for

Stingray to contact on operating matters at

any time, on a 24-hour a day, 365-day a

year basis. Such contact persons must have

adequate authority and expertise to deal

with such operating matters. If Stingray

cannot contact any Shipper because that

Shipper has failed to designate a contact

person or Shipper's contact person is

unavailable or unsuitable, such Shipper

shall be solely responsible for any

consequences which could have been

prevented by communication.

 

(b) For the purpose of this Section 19, the

overall operational integrity of

Stingray's System shall encompass the

integrity of the physical System and the

preservation of physical assets and their

performance (including the capability and

deliverability of storage reservoirs), the

overall operating performance of the

entire physical System as an entity (or

any portion thereof), and the maintenance

(on a reliable and operationally sound

basis) of total System deliverability and

the quality of gas delivered.

 

19.2 STANDARDS

 

(a) Stingray shall apply consistent and

objective engineering and operational

criteria to define the overall operational

integrity of the System and acceptable

pressure levels to be protected, to

evaluate the imminent nature of any threat

to these factors, and to determine what

steps are necessary to preserve such

factors. Such criteria may be changed from

time to time as operating experience

indicates.
