10.1 General


Southern Star may issue operational flow orders (OFO's) to

Shippers under Rate Schedules ITS, ISS, TSS, FSS, STS, SFT and

FTS, or to Point Operators as described in this Section 10 as it

deems necessary to protect the integrity of its system or any

portion thereof; provided, however, that OFO's will only be issued

to Point Operators who have actual operational control of the

receipt or delivery point. Southern Star's actions with respect

to OFO's are to be reasonable, objective, and non-discriminatory.

No Shipper or Point Operator that is subject to an OFO shall be

required to exceed its contractual rights or obligations under its

agreement with Southern Star. Southern Star shall not be liable

for any resulting damages, costs, or expenses incurred as a result

of such OFO unless such damages, costs, or expenses result for the

negligence or willful misconduct by Southern Star. The types of

OFO's described below are illustrative and are not intended to be

all-inclusive. If any Shipper or Point Operator does not follow

the operational orders issued hereunder, such Shipper or Point

Operator, in addition to all other remedies, shall be liable for

any resulting damages, costs, or expenses and will indemnify

Southern Star from any such damages, costs, and expenses to

Southern Star or any other party. Except for reason of force

majeure, Southern Star will provide a reservation charge and

surcharge credit for reduced deliveries that result from the

issuance of an OFO.


OFO's will be issued by 12 noon Central time. The OFO will be

effective the second gas day after issuance, in accordance with

the Section 9 nomination and scheduling provisions, unless

otherwise provided in the order. Southern Star may make OFO's

effective with a shorter notice if necessary to protect the

integrity of its system. Nomination changes required by an OFO

must be made in accordance with Section 9.1(c) and (d).


Each Shipper and Point Operator shall designate one or more

persons for Southern Star to contact on operational matters on a

24-hour a day, 365 days a year basis. Email or internet URL

addresses, fax and telephone numbers must be provided for such

person or persons. If Southern Star is unable to contact any

Shipper or Point Operator because that Shipper's or Point

Operator's contact person(s) is unavailable, such Shipper or Point

Operator shall be solely responsible for any consequences arising

from such failure of communications.
