GENERAL TERMS AND CONDIITONS
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:
