In the event that the actions under Sections 40.4 through

40.7 are inadequate or there is insufficient time to carry out such

procedures, Trailblazer may periodically have to take unilateral action

to maintain system pressure and preserve the overall operational

integrity of Trailblazer's system (or any portion thereof). Trailblazer

is authorized to use all the resources of its system to such ends, and

supply received into Trailblazer's system, even though gas may be owned

by a person other than the entity receiving delivery. Trailblazer shall

not, however, be responsible as a supplier of gas to any Shipper.




(a) In exercising its authority pursuant to Sections 40.4

through 40.8, Trailblazer shall generally direct its actions to

Shippers in the following sequence, to the extent such actions and/or

sequencing will tend to alleviate the situation to be addressed:


(1) First, to any Shipper which is causing disruption

due to its failure to maintain receipts and deliveries in balance or to

match physical flows with nominated receipts or deliveries;


(2) Second, to any Shipper which has failed or is

failing to take action to anticipate a change in demand;


(3) Third, to any Shipper which is operating in a

manner which conflicts with sound operational practices in relation to

Trailblazer's system; and


(4) Lastly, to all other Shippers.


(b) Notwithstanding subsection (a), any Shipper which has

taken voluntary action to alleviate a situation shall be exempted from

further action hereunder to the extent of its voluntary action until

Trailblazer has applied equivalent measures to other Shippers.


(c) Operational Flow Orders shall require action within any

Shipper class proportionate to appropriate and relevant parameters,

such as applicable contract quantities or current or recent flowing gas
