TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
30. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDER (OFO) PROCEDURES
30.1 GTN, in its sole 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.
30.2 Whenever possible, GTN will identify those Shipper(s) or OBA
Operator(s) whose action(s) require GTN to issue an OFO and will
limit the applicability of the OFO to such Shipper(s)/OBA
Operator(s). If GTN is unable to identify those Shipper(s)/OBA
Operator(s) whose action(s) require issuance of an OFO, or if
issuance of an OFO to discrete Shipper(s)/OBA Operator(s) is
insufficient to alleviate the conditions requiring the issuance of
such OFO, GTN may issue an additional OFO applicable to all
Shippers and OBA Operators on a nondiscriminatory basis.
30.3 All OFOs will be posted on GTN's website, to be followed by a
facsimile, written notice or other mutually agreeable means of
electronic communication to affected Shippers/OBA Operators that
will set forth the causes or conditions necessitating the OFO. GTN
will issue an OFO as expeditiously as is reasonable and practicable
in the circumstances. When practicable, GTN will provide
sufficient notice to shippers to accommodate scheduling
requirements on upstream pipelines. Each OFO will contain the
(a) time and date of issuance;
(b) time that the 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 quantity of gas required to remedy the operational
condition requiring the issuance of the OFO; and
(e) any other term GTN may reasonably require to ensure the
effectiveness of the OFO.
GTN will post information, as soon as possible, about the status of
operational variables that will determine when an OFO will begin
and end. GTN will post a notice on its website informing
Shipper(s)/OBA Operator(s) when any OFO in effect will be canceled.
Following the issuance of an OFO, GTN will post information on the
factors that caused the OFO to be issued and then lifted as soon as
it is available.
