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:
