11.1Strained and Critial Operating Condition Procedures (Continued)


(d) Shippers may rely on the operational flow data posted by Transporter

as to daily receipt and delivery quantities in taking corrective

actions to manage daily imbalances. If Shipper relied upon posted

flow data and Shipper took actions to address a daily imbalance

based upon such data, such reliance will not cause an SOC or COC

Daily Imbalance Charge to be assessed. Transporter will review the

accuracy of all daily imbalance quantities posted based on such

operational flow data. The SOC and COC Daily Imbalance Charge

quantity will be based on the lesser of the daily imbalance

calculated pursuant to that operational flow data or the actual

measured quantity as reported at the end of the Month.
