9.6 Emergency Situations


An emergency situation shall include, but shall not be limited to,

a drop in delivery pressure to one or more Shippers which

jeopardizes service to such Shipper(s), storage withdrawals

exceeding or being expected to exceed 1,225 MMDth for any day,

equipment failure resulting in reduced delivery capacity on one or

more segments on Southern Star's system, and actual or threatened

periods of daily balancing or capacity curtailment.


Southern Star encourages parties to enter into voluntary

agreements under which gas may be diverted from one Shipper to

another in emergency situations. Southern Star will not provide

emergency gas supplies, divert gas supplies, compensate parties

whose gas may be diverted or bill parties who may receive gas

diverted from others absent a written agreement with the affected

parties. Southern Star shall not be liable for damages to any

party adversely affected as a result of this Section 9.6.


In the event of an emergency situation, Southern Star will provide

assistance to any Shipper on its system who desires to obtain

additional gas or capacity, or to provide gas or capacity. Such

assistance may include posting of data on CSI regarding emergency

gas supplies available, requests to purchase emergency gas

supplies, firm capacity available for emergency use and firm

capacity needed for emergency use. Southern Star will also

provide any other relevant information which it has available

regarding measurement, flow data and pressures as requested by

affected Shippers.
