23.1 (Continued)


The need to issue an OFO will depend on quantities of gas

confirmed and scheduled, the point(s) where actual receipts or

deliveries deviate from confirmed and scheduled quantities,

whether an OBA governs the allocation at the point(s), and the

relationship of these individual factors to general system

operations on any given day.


OFO's will identify the situation to be addressed and will

identify specific actions to be taken by Shipper, stated in

terms of an hourly gas flow level, and the probable duration of

an OFO. Transporter may issue OFO's at any time by telephone,

facsimile, or electronic mail communication to Shipper's

representative. In non-emergency situations, the OFO will be

effective within twenty-four (24) hours of notification by

Transporter, unless exigent circumstances dictate otherwise.

Shipper must make a contact person available on a twenty-four

(24) hour basis to receive OFO notices and elect the method of

communication of OFO's by Transporter (by facsimile or

electronic mail communication), and provide all necessary

information to Transporter. Transporter will use reasonable

efforts to give actual notice to that person, as time permits.


23.2 Compliance with Operational Flow Orders - OFO's issued to

alleviate conditions that threaten the operational integrity of

Transporter's system will require compliance within four(4)

hours of issuance, or such other time specified in the OFO. Any

Shipper receiving an OFO must undertake such of the following

actions as are necessary to comply with such order:


(a) commence or increase tenders of gas into Transporter's

system by a specified quantity at specified receipt points

or shift tenders of gas, in whole or in part, to different

specified receipt points;
