GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
16. INTERRUPTIONS OF SERVICE (Continued)
(b) Interruptions of Interruptible Service.
(1) Operator may interrupt any interruptible services (i) for the reasons set forth
in Section 16(a) above, or (ii) for the purpose of making capacity available for
firm services. Whenever Operator determines that such interruption is
appropriate, Operator shall do so in accordance with the priorities set forth at
Section 16(d) below.
(2) Where Operator's ability to render service is impaired in a particular portion of
Operator's facilities, interruptions of interruptible services shall be effected,
in accordance with Section 16(b)(1) above, only for those Buyers served through
the portion(s) of Operator's facilities in which service has been impaired.
(3) A Buyer that fails to interrupt its interruptible service as directed by Operator
shall be subject to penalties as set forth at Section 12 (Penalties) of the
General Terms and Conditions.
(c) Notice of Interruptions. If Operator interrupts services under any of its Rate
Schedules at any time during any day as herein provided, Operator shall give as much
notice of such interruptions as is practicable. When possible, Operator shall
announce interruptions at 3:00 p.m. on the day preceding the planned interruption.
Operator shall notify by facsimile each Buyer whose service is interrupted and shall
post a notice of interruption on its Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB). Direct
interconnect parties shall also receive notice of interruption from Operator's Gas
Controllers by telephone or facsimile transmission; provided that such direct
interconnect parties have, as required, made available a representative to maintain
24-hour contact with Operator to receive such notices. Such a representative shall
have the requisite authority and capability to make any adjustments required as a
result of Operator's notice of interruption. In the event of any conflicting
communications, notices from Operator's Gas Controllers shall control.
(d) Service Priorities. The provisions of this paragraph apply to all Operator's Rate
Schedules and all Service Agreements with Buyers thereunder. In the event capacity or
facilities are not available to continue the receipt, liquefaction, storage,
vaporization, transportation, or delivery of all Buyer's Natural Gas or LNG which has
been scheduled and is flowing on Operator's facilities, Operator, shall interrupt
service provided through the capacity in the constrained facilities among and within
Rate Schedules in the priority set forth as follows until the necessary level of
interruption (including complete interruption of the Cove Point LNG Plant and/or Cove
Point Pipeline, if necessary), is achieved.
(1) First, quantities flowing as Authorized Overrun service quantities under
Operator's Rate Schedule LTD-2;
(2) Second, quantities under Operator's Rate Schedule LTD-2 and ITS, beginning with
Buyers paying the lowest price and pro rata among Buyers paying the same price;
