5.5 Action Alerts and Operational Flow Orders (Continued)


(b) Actions to be Taken to Avoid Issuance: Bobcat 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, Bobcat will have the right

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

circumstances described in Section 5.5(a) of these General

Terms and Conditions.


(c) Preliminary Notifications/Follow-up Reports: Bobcat 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: Bobcat shall make an

Action Alert or OFO as localized as is reasonably

practicable based on Bobcat'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. Bobcat 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 subsections 5.5(f)

and 5.5(g) of these General Terms and Conditions. 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.
