5.5 Action Alerts and Operational Flow Orders (Continued)


(2) Action Alerts can be issued to affect any of the



(A) restriction of Interruptible Services;


(B) restriction of deliveries to specific Point(s)

of Receipt or Point(s) of Delivery covered by an

operational balancing agreement to the aggregate

MDIQ or MDWQ under Firm Storage Service

Agreement; and/or


(C) forced balancing such that point operators will

be required to assure that nominations equal

flows or that receipts and deliveries fall

within the tolerance level designated in the

Action Alert.


(g) OFOs: In the event that, in Bobcat's judgment, immediate

action is required to alleviate conditions which threaten to

impair reliable firm service, to maintain operations at the

pressures required to provide efficient and reliable

service, to have adequate Gas supplies in the system to

deliver on demand, to maintain services to all firm

Customers and for all firm services, and to maintain the

system in balance for the foregoing purposes, Bobcat may

forgo the action described in Section 5.5(f) of these

General Terms and Conditions and immediately issue an OFO.

In the event that (l) Customer or point operator does not

respond to an Action Alert, (2) the actions taken thereunder

are insufficient to correct the system problem for which the

Action Alert was issued, or (3) there is insufficient time

to carry out the procedures with respect to Action Alerts,

Bobcat may issue an OFO pursuant to this Section 5.5(g) or

take unilateral action, including the curtailment of firm

service, to maintain the operational integrity of Bobcat's

system. For purposes of this Section, the operational

integrity of Bobcat'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, and

the maintenance (on a reliable and operationally sound

basis) of total system deliverability and the quality of Gas

received into and/or delivered out of the system. Bobcat

shall post a notice on its Internet Web Site specifying the

factors that caused the Action Alert or OFO to be issued, to

the extent such factors are known.
