6. Action Alerts and Operational Flow Orders


6.1 Issuance and Notices


(a) Circumstances Warranting Issuance: As specified in this

Section 6, Saltville shall have the right to issue Action

Alerts or Operational Flow Orders ("OFO") that require

actions by Customers in order to (1) alleviate conditions

that threaten to impair reliable service, (2) maintain

operations at the pressures required to provide efficient

and reliable services, (3) have adequate Gas supplies in the

system to deliver on demand, (4) maintain service to all

firm shippers and for all firm services, and (5) maintain

the system in balance for the foregoing purposes. Saltville

shall lift any effective Action Alert or OFO, promptly upon

the cessation of operating conditions that caused the

relevant system problem.


(b) Actions to be Taken to Avoid Issuance: Saltville shall, to

the extent reasonably practicable, take all reasonable

actions necessary to avoid issuing an Action Alert or OFO.

Such actions shall include, in order of priority, (1)

working with point operators to temporarily adjust receipts

and/or deliveries at relevant Point(s) of Receipt or

Point(s) of Delivery, (2) working with Customers and point

operators to adjust scheduled flows on the system, or (3)

taking any other reasonable action designed to mitigate the

system problem. After taking all such reasonable actions to

avoid issuing an Action Alert or OFO, Saltville will have

the right to issue Action Alerts or OFOs, if necessary, in

the circumstances described in Section 6.1(a) above.


(c) Preliminary Notifications/Follow-up Reports: Saltville

shall provide, via posting on the Internet Web site and to

affected parties through the affected party's choice of

Electronic Notice Delivery mechanism(s), prior notice to all

Customers and point operators of upcoming system events such

as anticipated weather patterns and operational problems

that may necessitate the issuance of an Action Alert or OFO.


(d) Applicability of Action Alert or OFO: Saltville shall make

an Action Alert or OFO as localized as is reasonably

practicable based on Saltville's good faith and reasonable

judgment concerning the situations requiring remediation

such that an Action Alert or OFO will be directed first to

Customers and point operators causing the problem

necessitating the Action Alert or OFO and second, if

necessary, to all Customers and point operators. Saltville

will tailor the Action Alert or OFO to match the severity of

the known or anticipated operational problem requiring

remediation as more fully set forth in Sections 6.2 and 6.3

below. The declaration to the affected parties of

Operational Flow Orders, critical periods and/or Critical

Notices shall describe the conditions and the specific

responses required from the affected parties.
