20. SYSTEM OPERATION - (Continued)


Notwithstanding the foregoing, TransColorado shall take reasonable

actions to minimize the issuance and the adverse impact of OFOs, or of any

other measure taken under this Section in response to adverse operational

events on TransColorado's system. TransColorado will issue OFOs only if

necessary, in its reasonable judgment, to maintain the pressure of its

system within the range of normal operating parameters or, to respond to

or prevent facility outages or other conditions which could have a

detrimental impact on system reliability or service integrity on its

system. OFOs shall be lifted as soon as practicable when such conditions

no longer prevail.


Such OFOs may, subject to Section 20.9, require a Shipper to take

any of the following actions, or similar actions, to the extent such

actions would tend to alleviate the situation to be addressed:


(i) Commence or increase deliveries into

TransColorado's system at specific points, or shift such deliveries (in

whole or in part) to different points.


(ii) Cease or reduce deliveries into TransColorado's

system at specific points.


(iii) Commence or increase deliveries of gas from

TransColorado's system from specific points, or shift deliveries to

different points.


(iv) Cease or reduce deliveries from TransColorado's

system or at specific points.


(v) Reconcile transportation imbalances.


(vi) Requiring that deliveries under all of

TransColorado's rate schedules be made on a uniform hourly rate effective

three (3) hours after issuance of an OFO.


(vii) Such other actions as are within Shipper's

control that would tend to alleviate the situation to be addressed.


No Shipper will be required under an OFO to exceed its total firm

maximum daily quantity under its Agreements with TransColorado under Part

284 of the Commission's Regulations. Nor will a Shipper be required to

accept delivery of gas that the Shipper cannot use at its delivery points.
