waiver and shall be available for public inspection at

Transporter's office during normal business hours. 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



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 obtained.
