2.1 Preliminary Notifications/Follow-up Reports: Transporter shall provide,

via posting on PASSKEY, prior notice to all OFO Recipients of upcoming

system events such as anticipated weather patterns and operational

problems which may necessitate the issuance of an OFO. On a quarterly

basis, Transporter will provide every OFO Recipient that was affected by

an OFO during the previous quarter, and will file with the FERC, a

written report which details the underlying causes which warranted the

issuance of the OFOs during the quarter and explains why the actions

required by the OFO were necessary to alleviate the identified problems.


2.2 Applicability of OFO: Transporter shall make an OFO as localized as is

reasonably practicable based on Transporter's good faith and reasonable

judgement concerning the situations requiring remediation such that an

OFO will be directed (a) first to OFO Recipients causing the problem

necessitating the OFO or transporting gas in the area of the system in

which there is an operational problem, and (b) second to those OFO

Recipients transporting gas in the area of the system where action is

required to correct the problem necessitating the OFO. Prior to the

issuance of an OFO, Transporter will attempt, if sufficient time exists,

to alleviate the situation necessitating the OFO through the application

of the scheduling and curtailment provisions in Article III of these

General Terms and Conditions. Transporter will tailor the OFO to match

the severity of the known or anticipated operational problem requiring

remediation as more fully set forth in Sections 3, 4 and 5.


2.3 Notice: As stated in NAESB Standard 5.3.34 (Version 1.8),

Transportation Service Providers should provide affected parties with

notification of intraday bumps, operational flow orders and other

critical notices through the affected party's choice of Electronic

Notice Delivery mechanism(s). As stated in NAESB Standard 5.2.2

(Version 1.8), "Electronic Notice Delivery" is the term used to

describe the delivery of notices via Internet, E-mail and/or EDI/EDM.

Pursuant to NAESB Standards 5.3.34 and 5.2.2, Transporter shall issue

notice of all OFOs to the affected OFO Recipient via PASSKEY, e-mail or

EDI/EDM, at the OFO Recipient's election. In addition, Transporter

shall notify the OFO Recipient of issuance of an OFO via telephone.

Concurrent with notice to the OFO Recipient, all OFOs shall be posted

on PASSKEY. The OFO will set forth (a) the time and date of issuance,

(b) the actions the OFO Recipient, is required to take, (c) the time by

which the OFO Recipient must be in compliance with the OFO, (d) the

anticipated duration of the OFO, and (e) any other terms which

Transporter may reasonably require to ensure the effectiveness of the

OFO. Each OFO Recipient must designate one or more persons, but not

more than three persons, for Transporter to contact on operating

matters at any time, on a 24-hour a day, 365-day a year basis. Such

contact persons must have adequate authority and expertise to deal with

such operating matters. If Transporter cannot contact any OFO

Recipient due to its failure to designate a contact person or because

such contact person is unavailable, such OFO Recipient shall be solely

responsible for any consequences which could have been prevented by
