16.2 Transporter shall have the right to issue OFOs as specified in

this Section 16 that require actions by Shippers/point operators

in order (1) to alleviate conditions that threaten to impair

Transporter's ability to provide reliable service, (2) to maintain

pipeline operations at the pressures required to provide efficient

and reliable service, (3) to have adequate Natural Gas supplies in

Transporter's system to receive and deliver Natural Gas consistent

with its firm transportation service obligations, (4) to maintain

transportation service to all firm Shippers and for all firm

transportation services, (5) to maintain Transporter's system in

balance for the foregoing purposes, and (6) to maintain operating

conditions necessary to allow receipts from and deliveries into

interconnected pipelines. Transporter shall lift any effective

OFO promptly upon the cessation of operating conditions that

caused the relevant system problem(s). Routine repairs and

maintenance will not be used as a basis for issuing OFOs.

Transporter will plan routine repairs and maintenance by

scheduling such activities in advance.


16.3 Transporter shall, to the extent practicable, take all reasonable

actions necessary to avoid issuing an OFO. Such actions may

include (1) working with point operators to temporarily adjust, by

mutual agreement, receipts and/or deliveries at relevant Point(s)

of Receipt or Point(s) of Delivery, (2) working with

Shippers/point operators to adjust, by mutual agreement, scheduled

flows on Transporter's system, (3) issuing an Action Alert

designed to mitigate the conditions which, if continued, would

require the issuance of an OFO, or (4) taking any other reasonable

action designed to mitigate the system problem. After taking all

such reasonable actions to avoid issuing an OFO, Transporter will

have the right to issue OFOs, if necessary, in the circumstances

described in Sections 16.2 and 16.7.


16.4 Transporter shall issue an OFO or Action Alert as localized as is

reasonably practicable based on Transporter's good faith judgment

concerning the situations requiring remediation such that an OFO

or Action Alert will be directed (1) to Shippers/point operators

causing the problem necessitating the OFO or Action Alert or

transporting Natural Gas in the area of Transporter's system in

which there is an operational problem, and (2) to those

Shippers/point operators transporting Natural Gas in the area of

Transporter's system where action is required to correct the

problem necessitating the OFO or Action Alert. Transporter will

tailor the OFO or Action Alert to match the severity of the known

or anticipated operational problem requiring remediation as more

fully set forth in subsections 16.6 and 16.7.
