GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
10. OPERATIONAL PLANS/EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
10.1 Gulf South has three operational plans designed to protect the
operational integrity of its pipeline system. These three
operational plans are a) Critical Period (Section 10.3), b)
Operational Flow Orders (Section 10.4), and c) System Management
Plan (Section 10.5):
a) A Critical Period should be viewed as an early warning
mechanism. Events may dictate that normal operating
conditions are deteriorating so that additional operational
procedures are warranted to protect the system's integrity.
Time and conditions permitting, a Critical Period Notice
will be the first operational plan utilized by Gulf South to
protect the operational integrity of its system.
b) If Gulf South determines that a Critical Period Notice is
inadequate to correct conditions or if time and conditions
do not allow for the issuance of a Critical Period Notice,
an Operational Flow Order may be issued directing parties to
take or not take specific actions to alleviate conditions
that threaten Gulf South's system integrity.
c) The System Management Plan may be used at any time to
reschedule previously scheduled quantities when it is
determined that Gulf South cannot provide all or any part of
any previously scheduled services.
10.2 Summary of Operational Plans
See chart on Sheet No. 1700A
Except where protection of system integrity is required (Section
10.4(a)), Gulf South will issue a Critical Period Notice prior to
issuance of an OFO. The System Management Plan may be used at
any time, independently or in conjunction with either a Critical
Period or an OFO, in order to reschedule any previously scheduled
transportation and/or storage services.
