Operational Flow Orders. Such a rejection must be made by Natural within

two (2) Business Days after the notification is tendered to Natural. If

a notification is already in effect and Natural reasonably determines

that the conditions for such a notification are no longer met, Natural

may provide notice of rejection, which notice shall be effective within

five (5) Days or such later time as is specified in the notice. As part

of any rejection of a notification hereunder, Natural shall provide to

the Shipper and to the entity which submitted the notification a written

explanation of the rejection. Such explanation must be consistent with

entity agreeing to take responsibility.
