A. In the event Transporter's observations or projections

indicate that a situation is or may be developing in which

adequate pressures may not be maintained or the overall

operational integrity of its System (or any portion thereof)

could be threatened, or in the event that such a situation

actually occurs, Transporter is authorized by this section to

take action to alleviate this situation. In responding to

the projected development of such a situation, Transporter

shall first apply the Advisory Action procedures of Section

36.4. If such measures are not sufficient and the situation

continues to deteriorate, Transporter shall next employ

Directional Notices as provided in Section 36.5. In the

event Directional Notices alone are not adequate, and the

situation becomes worse, Transporter may invoke the Critical

Time Operational Flow Order procedures set out in Section

36.6. Finally, Transporter may take unilateral action as

provided in Section 36.7. The procedures set out in such

provisions, and their sequencing, are intended to be applied

only to the extent any of the specific actions indicated, or

such sequencing, would be anticipated to alleviate the

situation to be addressed. In issuing Advisory Actions,

Directional Notices or Critical Time Operational Flow Orders,

Transporter shall describe the specific System conditions,

including providing available information that led

Transporter to conclude that the particular action requested

of Shipper(s) is appropriate, and the specific responses

required from the affected parties.


B. To the extent that specific actions can be reasonably

identifiable, Transporter shall direct its actions hereunder

to Shippers creating or anticipated to create the situation

to be addressed and shall act consistent with Section 36.8.

Nothing herein shall preclude Transporter from bypassing any

of the above procedures if, in its judgment, the situation

so requires. Transporter will keep Shippers advised on the

status of the situation through the Informational Postings

portion of Transporter's Interactive Website.
