12.12 Operational Flow Orders


Kansas Pipeline may issue operational flow orders to

Shippers under any firm or interruptible Rate Schedule

as it deems necessary to protect the integrity of its

system or any portion thereof. Kansas Pipeline's actions

with respect to operational flow orders are to be

reasonable, objective, and nondiscriminatory.

No Shipper that is subject to an operational flow order

shall be required to exceed its contractual rights or

obligations under its agreement with Kansas Pipeline.

Kansas Pipeline shall not be liable for any resulting

damages, costs, or expenses incurred as a result of

such flow order unless such damages, costs, or expenses

result from the negligence or willful misconduct by

Kansas Pipeline. The types of operational flow orders

described below are illustrative and are not intended to

be all-inclusive. If any Shipper does not follow the

operational orders issued hereunder, such Shipper, in

addition to all other remedies, shall be liable for any

resulting damages, costs, or expenses and will indemnify

Kansas Pipeline from any such damages, costs and

Expenses to Kansas Pipeline or any other party.


Operational flow orders will be issued by 2:00 p.m.

Central time. Nomination changes must be made by 8:00

a.m. on the gas day following issuance of the operational

flow order. The operational flow order will be effective

one gas day later (second gas day after issuance of OFO),

unless otherwise provided in the order. Kansas Pipeline

may make OFO's effective with a shorter notice if

necessary to protect the integrity of its system.


Kansas Pipeline recognizes that the success of a seven (7)

day a week, twenty-four (24) hour a day nomination process

is dependent on the availability of Kansas Pipeline and

Shipper's scheduling personnel on a similar basis. Kansas

Pipeline and shipper contacts need not be at their ordinary

work sites, but should be available by telephone or beeper.

If Kansas Pipeline is unable to contact any Shipper because

that Shipper's contact person(s) is unavailable, such Shipper

shall be solely responsible for any consequences arising

from such failure of communications.
