to avoid a system integrity issue, Transporter may issue Action



(a) Issuance of Action Alerts: Action Alerts will be noticed in

accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 16.5 and

will be issued a minimum of four hours, or such shorter

period of time as Transporter deems reasonable under the

circumstances, prior to the required action by the

Shipper/point operator.


(b) Required Actions: Action Alerts can be issued to effect any

of the following:


(i) restriction or curtailment of interruptible services;


(ii) restrictions of receipts or deliveries at specific

Point(s) of Receipt or Point(s) of Delivery covered by

an Operational Balancing Agreement to the aggregate

MDQ under the firm Service Agreements whose Primary

Receipt Points and/or Primary Delivery Points are at

required to assure that nominations equal flows or

that receipts and deliveries fall within the tolerance

level designated in the Action Alert; and/or


(iv) any action required to maintain the integrity of

Transporter's System.


16.7 In the event that (1) Shipper/point operator does not respond to

an Action Alert, or (2) the actions taken thereunder are

insufficient to correct the system problem for which the Action

Alert was issued, or (3) there is insufficient time to carry out

the procedures with respect to Action Alerts, Transporter may

periodically take unilateral action, including the curtailment of

firm transportation service, to maintain the operational integrity

of Transporter's system (or any portion thereof). For purposes of

this Section 16.7, the operational integrity of Transporter's

system shall encompass the integrity of the physical system and

the preservation of physical assets and their performance, the

overall operating performance of the entire physical system (or

any portion thereof), and the maintenance (on a reliable and

operationally sound basis) of total system deliverability and the

quality of Natural Gas delivered. Notice of an OFO will be

provided pursuant to and in accordance with Section 16.5 above.
