In the event that the actions under Sections 32.4 through

32.7 are inadequate or there is insufficient time to carry out such

procedures, KMIP may periodically have to take unilateral action to

maintain System pressure and preserve the overall operational

integrity of KMIP's System (or any portion thereof). KMIP is

authorized to use all the resources of its system to such ends,

through the integrated operation of line pack and supply received into

KMIP's system, even though gas may be owned by a person other than the

entity receiving delivery. KMIP shall not, however, be responsible as

a supplier of gas to any Shipper.




(a) In exercising its authority pursuant to Sections

32.4 through 32.8, KMIP shall generally direct its actions to Shippers

in the following sequence, to the extent such actions and/or

sequencing will tend to alleviate the situation to be addressed:


(1) First, to any Shipper which is causing

disruption due to its failure to maintain receipts and deliveries in

balance or to match physical flows with nominated receipts or



(2) Second, to any Shipper which is operating in a

manner which conflicts with sound operational practices in relation to

KMIP's System; and


(3) Lastly, to all other Shippers.


(b) Notwithstanding subsection (a), any Shipper which

has taken voluntary action to alleviate a situation shall be exempted

from further action hereunder to the extent of its voluntary action

until KMIP has applied equivalent measures to other Shippers.


(c) Operational Flow Orders shall require action within

any Shipper class proportionate to appropriate and relevant

parameters, such as applicable contract quantities or current or

recent flowing gas volumes.
