8.6 Liability of Transporter: Transporter shall not be

liable for any costs incurred by any Shipper in complying

with an OFO. Transporter shall not be responsible for

any damages that result from any interruption in

Shipper's service that is a result of a Shipper's failure

to comply promptly and fully with an OFO, and the non-

complying Shipper shall indemnify Transporter against any

claims of responsibility.


8.7 Unilateral Action: In the event that (1) Shipper(s) does

not respond to an OFO, or (2) the actions taken

thereunder are insufficient to correct the system problem

for which the OFO was issued, or (3) there is

insufficient time to carry out the procedures with

respect to OFOs, Transporter may periodically take

unilateral action, including the curtailment of firm

service, to maintain the operational integrity of

Transporter's system (or any portion thereof). For

purposes of this section, the operational integrity of

Transporter's system shall encompass the integrity of the

physical system and the preservation of physical assets

and their performance, the overall operating performance

of the entire physical system as an entity (or any

portion thereof), and the maintenance (on a reliable and

operationally sound basis) of total system deliverability

and the quality of gas delivered.


8.8 Reporting: Within thirty (30) days after an OFO

terminates, Transporter shall prepare a report concerning

the factors causing the OFO to be imposed and,

subsequently, terminated. The report will be supplied to

affected shippers upon request.




9.1 Receipts and Deliveries: All Receipt and Delivery Points

must be covered by an OBA or an individual balancing

agreement with the Transporter.
