16.3 Notice Procedures for OFO's


Transporter will post all notices of OFO's on its Web Site as

expeditiously as is practicable, and, to the extent an

Operational Flow Order is applicable only to specific shippers,

Transporter will notify each such Shipper by facsimile, provided

that such Shipper has provided a facsimile number to



Transporter shall update its OFO notices with available

information regarding the operational variables that determine

when the OFO will begin and end. For example, if an OFO will

remain in effect until repairs to a compressor or pipeline are

complete, information regarding the status of the repairs will

be posted by Transporter. Transporter shall post notices

concerning planned work at compressor or other facilities,

which, under reasonably foreseeable circumstances, may cause

Transporter to issue an OFO. Within a reasonable time following

the termination of an OFO, Transporter shall post a report

detailing the factors requiring the issuance of the OFO and the

termination of the OFO.



16.4 Operational Remedies Prior to Issuance of an OFO


Transporter shall, whenever practicable, attempt to obviate the

issuance of an OFO to a particular shipper by (i) temporarily

changing system operations, (ii) seeking the voluntary

assistance of other parties, including, without limitation,

shippers and interconnected facility operators, and

(iii) restricting service to shippers with lower scheduling and

curtailment priority.
