(e) Special Relief.


(i) Gas supply adequacy is solely the responsibility of the

Shipper. Gas will not be diverted from one Shipper's

account to another Shipper's account to resolve shortage

situations in the normal course of business (e.g.,

through the use of Operational Flow Orders).


(ii) However, Essential Human Needs and Minimum Plant

Protection Uses should be protected from physical

interruption of supply to forestall injury to life or

property. If any Shipper of Transporter experiences or

anticipates a supply emergency which could cause such

injury, such Shipper shall utilize to the fullest extent

possible all of Shipper's existing Gas supply

arrangements, including storage inventories and

available self-help measures to alleviate such emergency

prior to requesting assistance from Transporter and

other Shippers pursuant to this section.


(iii) Any such assistance to resolve such emergencies will be

based, to the maximum extent possible, on voluntary,

market-based arrangements involving a sale of Gas by a

willing seller to the Shipper experiencing the emergency

shortage, at a rate negotiated by the Parties to the

sale. Such transactions could involve the

pre-arrangement of portfolios of divertible supply, or

short-term arrangements through the use of Transporter's

electronic bulletin board, or any other arrangement

acceptable to the Parties to the sale.
