5.5 Delivery Nominations and Scheduling (continued)


(v) If, as a result of a nomination for service under Rate

Schedule FT or FSS pursuant to the flexible nomination

provisions of Section 5.5(a)(ii) above, scheduled

service to a Shipper under Section 5.5(f)(ii) must be

interrupted in whole or in part, Transporter shall

provide notice of the need for such interruption to

Shipper at least sixty (60) minutes prior to the time

of bumping. However, to the extent such bumping

affects transactions on multiple interstate pipelines,

such bumping shall occur only at the grid-wide

synchronization times specified in the NAESB Standards

then in effect under Transporter's Tariff, or such

other times as may be permitted or otherwise employed

by an affected pipeline at any given time, and to the

extent that such bumping does not affect transactions

on other interstate pipelines, such bumping shall only

occur prior to 5:00 p.m. on any Day. Notice of

bumping shall be provided electronically via the

Internet or by telephone.


(vi) Transporter will provide advance notice, using the

mechanisms provided for in Section 20.4(c) below for

communication of OFOs, to interruptible Shippers

being bumped by firm Shippers. If, in order to

schedule service under Rate Schedule HFT, a Shipper

receiving interruptible service must be bumped during

the Day other than pursuant to the timelines provided

in Section 5.5(a)(i) above, Transporter will provide

notice as soon as practicable (but at least sixty

(60) minutes prior to bumping) electronically via the

Internet or by telephone to such Shipper.

Transporter shall provide telephonic notice by

placing a call to a number which must be supplied by

Shipper, available twenty-four (24) hours per Day,

and equipped with voice mail or other electronic

messaging. Transporter will notify the interruptible

Shipper being bumped if penalties will apply on the

Day its service is to be bumped.
