4.6. Interruptions or Curtailment of Service: (Continued)


(5) In the event that the procedures under subsections (1)

through (4) above are either unavailable or insufficient,

Paiute will utilize LNG inventory to forestall any High

Priority curtailment. In this event, the Firm Shipper(s)

receiving this emergency service shall return equivalent

quantities of gas to the LNG inventory and/or to the

Shipper(s) whose inventory was utilized as soon as

practicable after the conclusion of the Catastrophic

Supply Failure. The method of returning such quantities

shall be determined by Paiute and the other Shipper(s)



(6) In the event service to High Priority customers is still

in jeopardy, then curtailment will be invoked on the

Paiute system.


a. Firm Shippers will be required to provide demand by

end use priority to Paiute for the specific day in



b. Requests for voluntary curtailment will be made to

Low Priority customers. Low Priority customers will-

ing to be curtailed first will negotiate the compen-

sation to be paid by the Firm Shippers receiving the

diverted gas supplies. If voluntary curtailment is

not sufficient to satisfy supply needs, then the

curtailment order will proceed.


c. Capacity and supply used to satisfy Low Priority

loads will be curtailed and the supplies diverted

to the affected Firm Shipper(s).


d. Curtailment will continue until:


1. All Low Priority loads are curtailed; or


2. The volume required to forestall High Priority

curtailment is diverted.
