29. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDERS

 

a. Transporter shall have the right to issue operational flow

orders (OFO) as specified in this Section if action is

required in order to alleviate conditions which threaten the

integrity of Transporter's system, to maintain pipeline

operations at the pressures required to provide an efficient

and reliable transportation service, to have adequate gas

supplies in the system to deliver on demand (including

injection of gas into the mainline, providing line pack, and

injecting gas into storage in the right quantity at the right

place and time), to maintain service to all Shippers and for

all services, and/or to maintain the system in balance for the

foregoing purposes. Before issuing an OFO, Transporter will

attempt to identify specific customers causing a problem and

attempt to remedy those problems. Upon issuing an OFO,

Transporter shall notify all affected Shippers by telephone

and facsimile as well as by posting the information on the

EBB. Where operationally feasible, service to interruptible

Shippers will be suspended prior to issuing an OFO

interrupting service to firm Shippers.

 

If an OFO is issued, Transporter will direct one or more

Shippers to adjust receipts and/or deliveries at specific

point(s) on Transporter's system.

 

All quantities tendered to Transporter and/or taken by Shipper

on a daily basis in violation of Transporter's operational

flow orders shall constitute unauthorized receipts or

deliveries for which a charge of $15 per MMBtu shall be

assessed. Shippers will be exempt from penalties on

imbalances that result from complying with an OFO. A

reasonable make-up period treated as monthly imbalance carried

forward in Section 5.2(d)(4) FT Rate Schedule will be allowed

to correct OFO created imbalances. Upon an operational flow

order becoming effective, as specified in the operational flow

order or as provided in this Section 29 of the General Terms

and Conditions, Shipper, OFO party, or operator of the

facilities connecting with Transporter's facilities shall be

permitted the time stated in the OFO, or such lesser time as

is required to protect the integrity of Transporter's system,

to make adjustments in compliance with the operational flow

orders. If Shipper, or operator of such interconnect, adjusts

its tenders or takes within such notice period, then no

charge, as provided for herein, shall be assessed.
