Section 10



Gulf South will provide as much advance notice as possible prior

to issuing an OFO, but in no event will an OFO be issued without

at least eight (8) hours notice prior to the action required by

the OFO unless a shorter time is required to protect the

operational integrity of the pipeline. No Shipper will be subject

to a penalty under this provision during the time period beginning

when Gulf South first issues a notice declaring an OFO and for a

period ending eight hours after the issuance of such notice. When

Gulf South declares an OFO, it shall post a timely notice on its

Internet Web Site followed by a telephone call to affected

Customer's dispatch number unless Customer has designated another

preferred format for notification. The Customer's telephone

numbers shall be provided pursuant to Section 11.3 of these

General Terms and Conditions. Notice of all OFOs together with

the explanation for its issuance will be sent to the Commission

and all affected shippers within 48 hours of issuance. The

Commission shall be notified by over-night mail or facsimile and

affected shippers shall be notified by a posting on Gulf South's

Internet Web Site or via e-mail.


(a) Except in cases where the operational integrity of Gulf

South's facilities would be in jeopardy if Gulf South did

not take immediate action under Section 10.4, an OFO will

not be issued unless Gulf South has first issued a Critical

Period Notice. Once Gulf South issues an OFO, the OFO

shall replace the Critical Period Notice for the specific

area or Shippers covered by the OFO. Nothing herein shall

limit Gulf South's ability to issue a Critical Period

Notice for one portion of its system while issuing an OFO

for another portion of the system.


(b) The circumstances under which Gulf South may issue an OFO

include but are not limited to:


(i) Any operating condition identified in Section 10.3

when such condition threatens safe operations or

system integrity such that issuance of a Critical

Period notice is inadequate to correct the condition.

An OFO issued pursuant to this section shall be

terminated once the event giving rise to the OFO no

longer threatens the operational integrity of Gulf

South's system.
