15.3 Exemptions


Shippers will be exempt from imbalance charges pursuant

to Section 13.2 herein that result from complying with

an OFO. A reasonable make-up period will be allowed to

correct OFO created imbalances based on the then

current operations of Transporter's Facility. Upon an

OFO becoming effective as specified in the OFO or as

provided in this Section 15.3, Shipper or operator of

the facilities connecting with Transporter's facilities

shall be permitted the time stated in the OFO, or such

lesser time as is required to protect the integrity of

Transporter's Facility, to make adjustments in

compliance with the OFO. If Shipper complies with the

provisions of the OFO within such notice period then no

penalty pursuant to Section 15.2 shall be assessed.

Shippers will be exempt from imbalance charges caused

solely by Transporter's failure to receive scheduled

quantities at a Receipt Point or to deliver scheduled

quantities to a Delivery Point, the provisions of

Section 6 being applicable. Shippers will be exempt

from charges caused solely by the application of the

provisions of Section 12.


15.4 Notices


Transporter will post to its Internet Web Site its

intention to place an OFO into effect and notify the

affected Shipper(s) at least 24 hours prior to the

implementation of the OFO; provided, however, that a

shorter notice period may be given where action must be

taken to protect the integrity of Transporter's

Facility. Such notice and posting shall (i) identify

the parties subject to the OFO, (ii) the time the OFO

will become effective, (iii) the estimated duration of

the OFO (or, if unknown, that the OFO is indefinite)

and justification for the OFO (i.e., the triggering

tariff provision which is the basis for the OFO).

Additionally, as soon as information is available

regarding the status of any operational variables,

Transporter will post such information on its Internet

Web Site. Where an OFO is made effective on less than

24 hours notice, Transporter will also provide the

Commission with a detailed explanation with all

relevant information specific to the individual

situation to justify issuance of that particular OFO.

Whenever an OFO requires action in less than 72 hours,

Transporter will provide prompt notice to the affected

Shippers via Internet E-Mail or direct notification to

their Internet URL address, as well as by posting on

its Internet Web Site.
