(c) Whenever possible, Transporter shall identify those Shipper(s)

whose action(s) require Transporter to issue an OFO and shall

limit the applicability of the OFO to such Shipper(s). If

Transporter is unable to identify those Shipper(s) whose action(s)

require issuance of an OFO, or if issuance of an OFO to discrete

Shipper(s) is insufficient to alleviate the conditions requiring the

issuance of such OFO, Transporter may issue an additional OFO

applicable to all Shippers on a nondiscriminatory basis.


(d) On the day prior to commencement of the gas day, no later than 5:00

p.m. Central Clock Time (3:00 p.m. Pacific Clock Time), during the

scheduling and confirmation procedure, the OFOs will be posted on

Transporter's webpage, to be followed by a facsimile, written notice,

or other mutually agreeable means of electronic communications to

affected Shippers that will set forth the causes or conditions

necessitating the OFO. Transporter shall issue an OFO as

expeditiously as is reasonable and practicable in the circumstances.

Each Shipper shall designate an operational contact for Transporter to

notify on a 24 hour a day, 365 days a year basis. If Transporter is

unable to notify any Shipper because that Shipper's contact is

unavailable, such Shipper shall be solely responsible for any

consequences arising from such failure of communication. When

practicable, Transporter shall provide sufficient notice to customers

to accommodate scheduling requirements on upstream pipelines. Each OFO

will contain the following provisions:


(i) time and date of issuance


(ii) time that OFO is considered to be effective (if no time is

specified, the OFO will be effective immediately);


(iii) duration of the OFO (if not specified, the OFO will be

effective until further notice);


(iv) the party or parties receiving the OFO;


(v) causes or conditions requiring the issuance of an OFO;


(vi) specific action necessary to remedy the condition identified

in (v) above; and


(vii) any other term Portland General may reasonably require to

ensure the effectiveness of the OFO.


Unless otherwise specified in the OFO, compliance must commence at the

Beginning of the applicable gas day.


(e) Failure to Comply with OFO. If Shipper (or Shipper's designee or

successor) fails to comply with the terms of an OFO for reasons other

than force majeure such Shipper, its designee or successor

shall be liable for a penalty equal to the greater of twenty-five dollars
