(a) Types of Operational Flow Orders

(1) Emergency System Maintenance - Pipeline may direct Customers under any firm or

interruptible Rate Schedule to increase or decrease receipts of flowing Gas on a

particular portion of the system in order to accommodate required unscheduled



(2) Extreme Conditions - For purpose of this Section 5.9(a)(2), an extreme condition

exists on any portion of Pipeline's system when throughput approaches capacity, when

weather conditions so require, or when operating pressures on the affected portion are

significantly less than or greater than normal system operating pressures despite

Pipeline's effort to maintain normal pressures, and further decline or increase in operating

pressures would impair Pipeline's ability to receive or deliver quantities of Gas in

accordance with its service obligations. Pipeline may declare an extreme condition

situation for the affected portion of the system by notifying the meter operator(s) and

Customer(s) through its Interactive Internet Website and by telephone, E-mail and/or

facsimile communication. Once declared, Pipeline will post notification of the extreme

condition on its Interactive Internet Website at the commencement of each Day until

Pipeline notifies the meter operator(s) and the Customer(s) through the Interactive

Internet Website and telephone, E-mail and/or facsimile communication that the extreme

condition has ended. When an extreme condition is declared to become effective at any

time other then the commencement of any Day, Customer(s) will use their best efforts to

bring deliveries to nominated levels as soon as possible but in no event later then two (2)

hours, after which the Daily Scheduling Charge provided for in Section 5.9(b)shall apply

to variances in excess of the 3% tolerance level.


(b) Daily Scheduling Charge - When Pipeline declares a System Maintenance OFO as

to any portion of its system, or if necessary the entire system, the daily scheduling

tolerance level shall be 5% of the authorized delivery levels. However, when Pipeline

declares an Extreme Condition OFO as to any portion of its system, the daily scheduling

tolerance level shall be 3% of the authorized delivery levels. The Charge for variances

beyond the tolerances levels as stated in the OFO shall be:
