Curtailment and Interruption


curtailment orders of the Commission, or as a result of the

Customer's failure to comply with such curtailment or

interruption order; provided that Pipeline will not be

indemnified to the extent of its own negligence, willful

misconduct, or fraud in causing such damage or liability.


11.2 Force Majeure Curtailment. Pipeline may interrupt,

discontinue or curtail deliveries of gas at any time,

without liability to those affected, if required in

Pipeline's judgment by weather, the necessity for repairs,

operating changes or other Force Majeure conditions, as

curtailment, quantities of gas deliverable under sales,

storage, or transportation rate schedules by Pipeline to

Customer on a firm basis shall take priority over

quantities of gas deliverable by Pipeline to Customer on an

interruptible basis. So far as operating conditions will

permit, available natural gas shall be dispatched in as

equitable a manner as possible.


11.3 In the event any services are curtailed or interrupted

hereunder for reasons other than those covered in Section

11.2., above, Pipeline shall reduce scheduled service, to

zero, if necessary, in the following order:


A. All services rendered under Rate Schedule IT or MCS,

the interruptible portion of Rate Schedule FT with

interruptible rights (e.g. 300-day firm service), and

the interruptible portion of firm storage, all to be

reduced pro rata based on rate paid.


B. Remaining scheduled firm service under Pipeline's firm

Rate Schedules, pro rata based on Maximum Daily

deliveries. Often, interruptible receipts support firm

deliveries and firm receipts support interruptible

receipt of flowing supply to mitigate the curtailment of

firm deliveries, with Customer consent, when such Customer

is delivering interruptible quantities at a critical

Receipt Point on Pipeline's system and if curtailing
