7.4 Operational Flow Orders


(a) Operator shall have the right to issue Operational Flow Orders

("OFO") that require actions by Customers in order to (i)

alleviate conditions that threaten to impair reliable service;

(ii) maintain operations at the pressure required to provide

efficient and reliable services; (iii) have adequate gas supplies

in the system to deliver on demand; (iv) maintain service to all

firm Customers and for all firm services; and (v) maintain the

system in balance for the foregoing purposes. Operator shall lift

any effective OFO promptly upon the cessation of operating

conditions that caused the relevant system problem.


(b) To the extent practical, Operator shall take all reasonable

actions necessary to avoid issuing an OFO. Such actions shall

include, in order of priority, (i) working with point operators to

temporarily adjust receipts and/or deliveries at relevant Point(s)

of Receipt or Delivery, (ii) working with Customers and point

operators to adjust scheduled flows on the system, or (iii) taking

any other reasonable action designed to mitigate the system

problem. After taking all reasonable actions to avoid issuing an

OFO, Operator shall have the right to issue an OFO, if necessary,

in the circumstances described in Section 7.4(a) above.


(c) Preliminary Notice. Operator shall provide, by way of posting on

its Web Site and directly to affected parties, 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 OFO and provide actions that

Customers may take to avoid issuance of an OFO.
