Transporter shall maintain actual physical and operational control

of all storage, transmission and other facilities on its system.




In the event Transporter's observations or projections indicate

that a situation is or may be developing in which adequate

pressures may not be maintained or the overall operational

integrity of its system (or any portion thereof) could be

threatened, or in the event that such a situation actually occurs,

Transporter is authorized by this Section to take action to

alleviate this situation. In responding to the projected

development of such a situation, Transporter shall first apply the

Advisory Action procedures of Section 29.4. If such measures are

not sufficient, and the situation continues to deteriorate,

Transporter shall next employ Directional Notices as provided in

Section 29.5. In the event Directional Notices alone are not

adequate, and the situation becomes worse, Transporter may invoke

the Critical Time Operational Flow Order procedures set out in

Section 29.6. Finally, Transporter may take unilateral action as

provided in Section 29.7. 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 be anticipated to alleviate the situation to be

addressed. In issuing Advisory Actions, Directional Notices or

Critical Time Operational Flow Orders, Transporter shall describe

the specific system conditions, including providing available

information that led Transporter to conclude that the particular

action requested of Shipper(s) is appropriate, and the specific

responses required from the affected parties.


To the extent that specific actions can be reasonably

identifiable, Transporter shall direct its actions hereunder to

Shippers creating or anticipated to create the situation to be

addressed and shall act consistent with Section 29.8. Nothing

herein shall preclude Transporter from bypassing any of the above

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

Transporter will keep Shippers advised on the status of the

situation through the informational postings portion of

Transporter's Interactive Website.
