16.5 Relief From Interruptions of Firm Transportation Service in Emergency



(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.
