GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
(e) In addition to the Operational Flow Orders
described in subsection (a) above, Natural may issue Operational Flow
Orders as follows:
(1) In order to improve system operations, Natural
may require a Shipper which has a variance of twenty percent (20%) or
more between actual deliveries to Natural at a Receipt Point and the
confirmed nomination at that Receipt Point to conform the deliveries to
the confirmed nomination as of the day that commences with the
effectiveness of the Operational Flow Order.
(2) Natural may also require Shippers to keep any
variances between actual flows and confirmed nominations at all of the
Receipt Points or Delivery Points in a Rate Zone under all of a Shipper's
Agreements, which are to the detriment of Natural's system, within a ten
percent (10%) tolerance. If a Shipper ("Swing Shipper") agrees to keep
all other Shippers at a Delivery Point (or, if applicable, a Central
Delivery Point) whole with their nominations, such other Shippers'
confirmed nominations and actual takes at that point will be included in
the total confirmed nominations and the total actual deliveries of the
Swing Shipper at all Delivery Points in the Rate Zone for purposes of
determining the Swing Shipper's variance.
Shippers that fail to comply with such Operational
Flow Orders described in this subsection (e) shall be subject to a
penalty of $10.00 per Dth outside of a ten percent (10%) tolerance.
(f) A Shipper shall not be subject to overrun penalties
and charges from Natural or Balancing Service Charges with respect to any
action taken in reasonable conformance with an Operational Flow Order
issued by Natural during a Critical or non-Critical Time.
(g) Except as provided in Section 6(d) of Rate Schedule
IBS, any Receipt or Delivery Point where the variance between the total
confirmed nominations and actual flows is less than 1,000 Dth per day or
where Natural does not have either daily metering or access to such
information shall be exempt at all times, including during a Critical
Time, from Operational Flow Orders requiring that gas flows be conformed
to nominations or to some percentage of nominations.
(h) Within thirty (30) days after an Operational Flow
Order has been lifted, Natural will post on its EBB a report which
describes the specific operational factors which caused the Operational
Flow Order to be issued and to be lifted.
