15.4 Applicability of OFO: Transporter shall make an OFO as localized

as reasonably practicable based on Transporter's good faith and reasonable

judgment concerning the situation requiring remediation, so that an OFO will

be directed (a) first to OFO Recipients causing the problem necessitating

the OFO or delivering gas in the area of the system in which there is an

operational problem, and (b) second to those OFO Recipients delivering gas

in the area of the system where action is required to correct the problem

necessitating the OFO. Prior to issuing the OFO, Transporter will attempt,

if sufficient time is available, to alleviate the situation necessitating

the OFO through the application of the scheduling and curtailment provisions

in Section 11 of these General Terms and Conditions. Transporter will tailor

the OFO to match the severity of the known or anticipated operational

problem as more fully stated below.


15.5 Notice: All OFOs will be issued via telephone and followed by

a facsimile to the affected Shippers, with subsequent posting on

Transporter's Internet Website, and by notice to the affected parties

through their prior choice of Electronic Notice Delivery mechanism(s). The

OFO will state (1) the time and date of issuance, (2) the actions

Shipper/operator is required to take, (3) the time by which Shipper must be

in compliance with the OFO, (4) the anticipated duration of the OFO, and (5)

other terms that Transporter may reasonably require to ensure the

effectiveness of the OFO. After the OFO has expired, Transporter shall post

on its Internet Website the factors that caused the OFO to be issued and



15.6 Action Alerts: If Transporter determines that due to (1) an

ongoing or anticipated weather event, (2) a known equipment problem, or (3)

the anticipated continuation of a current system operational problem, action

is necessary to avoid a situation in which the pipeline system integrity is

jeopardized or Transporter's ability to render firm service is threatened,

Transporter may issue an Action Alert as set out herein to forestall

development of the situation.


(a) Issuance of Alerts: Transporter will issue Action Alerts using

the procedures in Section 15.5, and in two stages. A minimum of 48 hours

prior to the time that a Shipper must take the action specified in the

Alert, Transporter will issue a notice informing the Shipper of the known or

anticipated problem on the system, the action that Shipper will be required

to take, and the anticipated time it will be required to take the action.

Shipper will be expected to take preliminary actions to assist Transporter

in avoiding a system problem. A minimum of 30 hours prior to the time when

the Shipper is required to take the designated action, Transporter will

issue specified action instructions. Conformance with these instructions

will be mandatory. Transporter, to the greatest extent feasible, will issue

the action instructions so that the time of mandatory conformance will

correspond with the beginning of the gas Day.
