17.2 Pipeline-Specific Operational Standards for Issuance of OFOs.


(a) If, in Transporter's judgment, impending operating conditions

will cause the delivery pressure to one or more Shippers to drop below the

pressure provided in the Service Agreement(s) of the Shipper(s),

Transporter may immediately issue an Operational Flow Order pursuant to

this Section requiring that deliveries under all of Transporter's Rate

Schedules be made on a basis consistent with the flow rates and limitations

set forth in the Operational Flow Order. If only one segment of

Transporter's system will be affected by low pressure, the Operational Flow

Order shall be limited to that segment of the system and shall be so

stated. For the duration of this Operational Flow Order, increases in

scheduled delivery quantities within affected segments of Transporter's

system will be made on a prospective basis only.


(b) Transporter shall have the right to issue Operational Flow

Orders requiring Shippers to deliver gas to Transporter at Shipper's

primary receipt points under Shipper's FT-1 Service Agreement with

Transporter. This right shall also apply to Shippers that have acquired

capacity via Transporter's capacity release and assignment procedures.


(c) Proper utilization of Transporter's system is critical.

Thus, Transporter may issue an Operational Flow Order as follows to

preserve its ability to provide firm service to Shippers:


(1) Transporter may issue an Operational Flow Order

limiting all Shippers to receipts and deliveries at primary points.


(2) Transporter may issue an Operational Flow Order

directing a Shipper to correct imbalances or operate within the

limitations on transportation as set forth in the Shipper's Service

Agreement or the applicable Rate Schedule.


(d) Transporter may, on a nondiscriminatory basis, issue such

other reasonable Operational Flow Orders as may be required for the

purposes set forth in this Section in order to provide the services

contemplated by this Tariff. For example, but without limitation,

Transporter may issue an OFO directing a Shipper to take certain actions to

enable Transporter to adequately respond to the following type of exigent

circumstances occurring on Transporter's system:
