waiver and shall be posted on Transporter's Website. In instances where

Transporter accepts nominations pursuant to Subsection 9.6.1,

Transporter will consider such nominations on an equal basis with

nominations submitted via an electronic communication mechanism.


9.6.1 Transporter will accept nominations received via an

alternate method, i.e. facsimile, mail or hand-delivery, in an

emergency situation, such as the failure of Transporter's

electronic communication mechanism utilized by Shipper or, at the

discretion of Transporter, in other instances when Shipper is

unable to communicate such nomination via an electronic

communication mechanism. Shipper shall contact Transporter's

Nomination Center by telephone, prior to sending a nomination via

such alternate method, to receive a verbal confirmation of the

waiver of the electronic communication requirement and to advise

Transporter's Nomination Center that a nomination via an alternate

method is forthcoming.


9.7 The sending party (i.e. Shipper for sending nominations to

Transporter, Transporter for issuing quick response) should adhere to

the nomination, confirmation, and scheduling deadlines. It is the party

receiving the request who has the right to waive the deadline. The

receiver of a nomination initiates the confirmation process. The party

that would receive a request for confirmation or an unsolicited

confirmation response may waive the obligation of the sender to send.


9.8 To the extent that nominations or deliveries are due to be made

on a non-business day(s), Transporter requests, but does not require,

nominations for all such days be made by 11:30 a.m. Central Clock Time

on the last regular business day immediately preceding such non-business

day(s). Transporter will, however, support a seven-days-a-week, twenty-

four-hours-a-day nominations process. It is recognized that the success

of seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day nominations process is

dependent on the availability of affected parties' scheduling personnel

on a similar basis. Transporter's nomination personnel may not be at

their ordinary work sites but will be available by telephone or beeper

and will process any new nomination or intra-day nomination received on

a non-business day on which upstream/downstream confirmation can be
