Section 10




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.
