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
(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 Rate Schedules FT-1, FT-2, HT-1 and BH-1 (if
scheduled pursuant to Section 2(c) of Rate Schedule BH-1) Service Agreements
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:
