12.12 Operational Flow Orders


KPC may issue operational flow orders to Shippers under any firm

or interruptible Rate Schedule as it deems necessary to protect

the integrity of its system or any portion thereof. KPC's actions

with respect to operational flow orders are to be reasonable,

objective, and nondiscriminatory. No Shipper that is subject to

an operational flow order shall be required to exceed its

contractual rights or obligations under its agreement with KPC.

KPC shall not be liable for any resulting damages, costs, or

expenses incurred as a result of such flow order unless such

damages, costs, or expenses result from the negligence or willful

misconduct by KPC. The types of operational flow orders described

below are illustrative and are not intended to be all-inclusive.

If any Shipper does not follow the operational orders issued

hereunder, such Shipper, in addition to all other remedies, shall

be liable for any resulting damages, costs, or expenses and will

indemnify KPC from any such damages, costs and Expenses to KPC or

any other party.


Operational flow orders will be issued by 2:00 p.m. Central time.

Nomination changes must be made by 8:00 a.m. on the gas day

following issuance of the operational flow order. The operational

flow order will be effective one gas day later (second gas day

after issuance of OFO), unless otherwise provided in the order.

KPC may make OFO's effective with a shorter notice if necessary to

protect the integrity of its system.


KPC recognizes that the success of a seven (7) day a week, twenty-

four (24) hour a day nomination process is dependent on the

availability of KPC and Shipper's scheduling personnel on a

similar basis. KPC and shipper contacts need not be at their

ordinary work sites, but should be available by telephone or

beeper. If KPC is unable to contact any Shipper because that

Shipper's contact person(s) is unavailable, such Shipper shall be

solely responsible for any consequences arising from such failure

of communications.
