9.8 System Protection Warnings


(a) A System Protection Warning may be noticed if MRT

anticipates problems which threaten overall operational integrity

on any portion or all of its system. The System Protection

Warning will identify the portion of MRT's system which is

affected and the estimated duration of the warning. It will also

state whether the potential system integrity problem is

anticipated to be caused by excess gas or a gas deficiency.

Customers are required to minimize any variances between scheduled

quantities and actual flows. Customers are also required to

minimize any imbalance between receipts and deliveries.

Deviations from scheduled quantities or imbalances which benefit

overall system operation will be permitted without penalty.


(c) Receipt and delivery of make up gas pursuant to

Section 10 may be suspended while a System Protection Warning is

in effect. Make up quantities which benefit overall system

operations may be permitted without penalty.
