such pressure as may be agreed upon in the gas service contract, provided

that the maximum pressure shall be Transporter's line pressure at the

Point(s) of Delivery and the minimum pressure shall be 100 pounds per square

inch gauge.


2. Operational Flow Orders


(a) Circumstances Warranting Issuance: Transporter shall have the right

to issue Operational Flow Orders (OFOs) as specified in this Section

that require actions by Shippers/Balancing Parties in order (1) to

alleviate conditions that threaten the integrity of Transporter's

system, (2) to maintain pipeline operations at the pressures required

to provide efficient and reliable transportation services, (3) to have

adequate gas supplies in the system to deliver on demand, (4) to

maintain service to all firm shippers, and (5) to maintain the system

in balance for the foregoing purposes.


(b) Preliminary Notifications/Follow-up Reports: Transporter shall

provide, via posting on PASSKEY, prior notice to all Shippers and

Balancing Parties of upcoming system events such as anticipated weather

patterns and operational problems that may necessitate the issuance of

an OFO. On a quarterly basis, Transporter will provide every Shipper

and Balancing Party that was affected by an OFO during the previous

quarter a written report that details the underlying causes that

warranted the issuance of the OFO during the quarter and explains why

the actions required by the OFO were necessary to alleviate the

identified problems.
