18.1 NBP, in its discretion, will have the right to issue OFOs when in

its judgment it is necessary to maintain or restore the

operational integrity of its system.


18.2 Whenever possible, NBP will identify those Shipper(s) whose

action(s) require NBP to issue an OFO and will limit the

applicability of the OFO to such Shipper(s). If NBP is unable to

identify those Shipper(s) whose action(s) require issuance of an

OFO, or if issuance of an OFO to discrete Shipper(s) is

insufficient to alleviate the conditions requiring the issuance of

such OFO, NBP may issue an additional OFO applicable to all

Shippers on a nondiscriminatory basis.


18.3 All OFOs will be posted on NBP's website, to be followed by a

facsimile, written notice or other mutually agreeable means of

electronic communication to affected Shippers that will set forth

the causes or conditions necessitating the OFO. NBP will issue an

OFO as expeditiously as is reasonable and practicable in the

circumstances. When practicable, NBP will provide sufficient

notice to customers to accommodate scheduling requirements on

upstream pipelines. Each OFO will contain the following



(a) time and date of issuance;


(b) time that OFO is considered to be effective (if no time is

specified, the OFO will be effective immediately);


(c) duration of the OFO (if not specified, the OFO will be

effective until further notice);


(d) the party or parties receiving the OFO;


(e) the quantity of gas required to remedy the operational

condition requiring the issuance of the OFO; and


(f) any other term NBP may reasonably require to ensure the

effectiveness of the OFO.
