procedures set out in Section 40.7. Finally, Trailblazer may take

unilateral action as provided in Section 40.8. The procedures set

out in such provisions, and their sequencing, are intended to be

applied only to the extent any of the specific actions indicated, or

such sequencing, would tend to alleviate the situation to be

addressed. In issuing Advisory Actions, Operational Flow Orders or a

Critical Time, Trailblazer shall describe the conditions and the

specific responses required from the affected parties. To the extent

practicable, Trailblazer shall direct its actions hereunder to

Shippers creating or anticipated to create the situation to be

addressed and shall act consistent with Section 40.9. Nothing herein

shall preclude Trailblazer from bypassing any of the above

procedures if, in its judgment, the situation so requires.

Trailblazer will keep Shippers advised through DART on the status of

the situation.




In the event Trailblazer determines that action is

required to avoid a situation in which system pressure is not

maintained or in which the overall operational integrity of the

system or any portion of the system is jeopardized, Trailblazer may

take the Advisory Actions set out herein to forestall the

development of such a situation.


(a) Trailblazer may request Shippers or other entities

affecting its system to take any of the following actions, or other

similar actions, to the extent such actions would tend to alleviate

the situation, on a voluntary basis:


(1) Change Receipt or Delivery Points;


(2) Change usage patterns (e.g., end users

switch to alternate fuels);


(3) Provide assistance from other resources

(such as customer storage);


(4) Activate pre-negotiated voluntary

arrangements under which gas is diverted from one Shipper to another

or from a non-Shipper to a Shipper (which arrangements may specify

appropriate compensation);
