16.5 Relief From Interruptions of Firm Transportation Service in Emergency Situations.

(a) Transporter shall adjust interruptions made pursuant to this Section to the extent necessary

to respond to emergency situations. An emergency situation exists when irreparable injury to life or

property (including minimum plant protection requirements) will occur if natural gas transportation service

is not rendered to a Shipper under Transporter's firm transportation service agreements. Emergency

exemptions from interruption procedures or orders under this Section may be requested by a Shipper of firm

transportation services when supplemental deliveries in excess of its pro rata interruption level are

required to prevent irreparable injury to life or property, and such Shipper (1) has arranged to use all

alternate sources of supply and capacity available, including other pipeline capacity capable of

operationally serving the affected area of interruption, recallable released capacity, and alternate fuels,

for the period involved, and (2) has interrupted and will continue to interrupt service to its

interruptible, off-system sales and low priority shippers during the emergency.

(b) Such request shall be submitted by the Shipper to Transporter by telephonic or facsimile

transmission, and shall be confirmed in writing, within 24 hours of the request, including a sworn,

notarized statement attesting (1) to the details of the emergency; (2) its estimated length; (3) that

Shipper has unsuccessfully attempted to obtain capacity from other sources, including capacity release and

assignment; (4) that all sources of gas supply and capacity, including that available from other pipelines

capable of operationally serving the affected area of interruption are being used; (5) that interruptible

services are unavailable; (6) that no alternate fuel can be used to avoid the emergency; and (7) that it has

interrupted service to its interruptible shippers, off-system sales and other low priority shippers and will

continue to do so during the emergency.
