Transporter's Interactive Web Site that there is no longer a

Critical Time Operational Flow Order.


(f) A Shipper shall not be subject to overrun penalties or

Imbalance penalties with respect to any action taken in

conformance with a Critical Time Operational Flow Order

issued by Transporter.




In the event that the requested or required actions under Sections

29.3 through 29.6 (the Advisory Actions, Directional Notices or

Critical Time Operational Flow Orders) are inadequate or there is

insufficient time to carry out such procedures, Transporter may

periodically have to take unilateral action to maintain system

pressure and preserve the overall operational integrity of

Transporter's system (or any portion thereof). Transporter is

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

including, but not limited to, adjusting the integrated operation

of storage, line pack, supply received into, and deliveries from

Transporter's system, even though Gas may be owned by a person

other than the entity receiving delivery. Transporter shall not,

however, be responsible as a supplier of Gas to any Shipper.




(a) In exercising its authority pursuant to Sections 29.3 through

29.7, Transporter 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 has been identified to take

action and is causing disruption due to its failure to

maintain receipts and deliveries in Balance or to match

physical flows with nominated receipts or deliveries (after

taking into account any storage rights of such Shipper);


(2) Second, to any Shipper which has been identified to

take action and has failed or is failing to take action to

anticipate a change in demand (i.e., a temperature sensitive

LDC or end user failing to respond to changes in weather);
