2.3 Communications.


(a) The EBB shall be used to communicate initial and revised gas transportation and storage schedules,

confirmation of gas transportation nominations, amendments of interruptible receipt and delivery points under

gas transportation service agreements, and any other data or notice required by this Tariff. After notice by

Transporter, the following types of communication may be permitted: notices not previously required to be

given through the EBB, service agreements and amendments, and such other communications as the parties may

agree in writing. Where electronic communications are required by this Tariff, Transporter may waive the

requirements and accept such communications in another acceptable form on a nondiscriminatory basis. Notices

posted on the EBB that require action by another party within two business days, including notices to

interruptible shippers, shall also be communicated by Electronic Notice Delivery.


(b) In the event of failure of all or part of the EBB system, communications ordinarily conveyed

through the EBB shall, to the extent possible, be conveyed through a combination of Electronic Notice

Delivery, telephonic or facsimile transmissions. Transporter will make available certain blank forms on its

EBB that Shipper may print for use in case of a failure of Transporter's EBB and Shipper may transmit those

completed forms to Transporter by facsimile transmission. Shipper will be responsible for printing and saving

the blank forms in advance of any EBB failure. In the event of failure of all or part of the EBB system, the

forms Shipper shall transmit by facsimile transmission shall include: notices requiring action within two

business days; requests for service not requiring open bidding; capacity releases made pursuant to an exempt

transaction; executions of Service Agreements; and submissions of nominations. In the event of failure of all

or part of the EBB system, the forms Transporter shall transmit by Electronic Notice Delivery or facsimile

shall include: status reports, executed Service Agreements, invoices, and notices requiring action within two

business days.


(c) In the event that certain EBB functions effectively cannot be replaced, Transporter will, by

Electronic Notice Delivery, telephone or facsimile transmission, provide notice to Shippers of the suspension

of that function pending restoration of EBB operations. The activities or functions to be suspended for the

duration of any EBB failure shall include: bidding for Transporter's available capacity or released capacity;

24-hour turnaround times for contracting between Transporter and other parties, such as Replacement Shippers

of released capacity; and current capacity information, balancing data, or other operational information.
