Superseding: Original Sheet No. 87







26.1 In the event of force majeure or operating conditions that threaten the integrity of

Pine Needle's liquefied natural gas storage facilities, it may be necessary for Pine

Needle to issue Operational Flow Orders (OFOs) to effectuate vaporization and delivery

of gas stored at such facilities. Before issuing an OFO, Pine Needle will attempt to

remedy those operating conditions through requests for voluntary action provided,

however, exigent circumstances may exist which require immediate issuance of an OFO.

Accordingly, upon issuance of an OFO by Pine Needle to Customer, Customer shall adjust

its gas receipts from Pine Needle as directed in the OFO.


26.2 Any OFO by Pine Needle shall be given to Customer at least 24 hours in advance, unless

exigent circumstances dictate otherwise. Each OFO will contain the following



(a) time and date of issuance;


(b) time that the OFO is considered to be effective (if no time is specified, the OFO

shall be effective immediately);


(c) duration of the OFO (if none is specified, the OFO will be effective until

further notice):


(d) a description of the event leading to the issuance of the OFO;


(e) the amount of gas required to be taken by Customer; and


(f) any other terms Pine Needle may reasonably require to ensure effectiveness of the



Pine Needle will publish all notices of implementation of an OFO and all provisions of an OFO

on Pine Needle's EBB and, at Customer's choice, provide notice either by e-mail or directly

to Customer's Internet URL address, as expeditiously as possible. Upon termination of an

OFO, Pine Needle will post on Pine Needle's EBB relevant information specific to the

individual situation regarding the issuance and lifting of that particular OFO as soon as it

is available.
