9.5 Capacity Curtailment


When unexpected capacity limitations cause Southern Star to be

unable to deliver the services already scheduled, the physical

capacity in the affected area which Southern Star determines is

available will be allocated among its customers as follows:


First, to firm Shippers pro-rata, based on MDTQs in the

affected area (Production or Market).


Second, to interruptible Shippers, including AOS under firm

rate schedules, based on rate paid from highest to lowest.

Deliveries at the same rate shall be curtailed pro-rata.

Interruptible Shippers may state, in advance, that they are

willing to pay the maximum rate to avoid or minimize



Southern Star shall provide prompt notification to all Shippers

when it imposes capacity curtailment. Such notice shall state the

reasons for the curtailment and Southern Star's estimate of the

length of the curtailment period. Southern Star shall provide the

notice by email and/or telephone and/or fax and shall post such

notice on CSI.
