(a) Issuance of Alerts: Action Alerts will be noticed in accord with the

procedures set forth in Section 14.4 and will be issued in two stages. A

minimum of 48 hours prior to the time that a Shipper/Balancing Party must

take the action specified in the Alert, Transporter will issue a notice

informing the Shipper/Balancing Party of the known or anticipated problem

on the system, the action it will be required to take, and the anticipated

time at which it will be required to take the action. Shipper/Balancing

Party will be expected to take preliminary actions to assist Transporter

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

that the Shipper/Balancing Party 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 such that the time of

mandatory conformance will correspond with the beginning of the gas day.

request that a Shipper/Balancing Party take any of the following actions,

or other similar actions, to the extend that such actions would alleviate

the situation:


(i) increase or decrease deliveries of gas into the system at specified

receipt points;


(ii) bring the nominations across all delivery points or, if necessary, at

specified delivery points within designated balancing tolerances.


14.6 Balancing Alerts: In the event that, in Transporter's judgment, the Action

Alerts under Section 14.5 are not sufficient to address the situation fully or

under circumstances in which the operational integrity of the system is more

severely threatened, Transporter may issue Balancing Alerts.

procedures set forth in Section 14.4 and will be issued a minimum of eight
