30. OPERATIONAL FLOW ORDERS AND PENALTIES
30.1 Implementation of Operational Flow Orders:
In keeping with the intent expressed in Section 14 herein to minimize imbalances,
in Section 13.3 to use Operational Balancing Agreements to help manage imbalances,
and in Section 11 to maintain operational control of Receipt and Delivery Points to
the maximum extent practicable, COMPANY shall attempt to minimize the use of
Operational Flow Orders ("OFOs"), the declaration of critical periods, and the
direction of an OFO to the specific Party(s) creating the operating condition and
to the specific location of the system where the operating condition exists, and
COMPANY shall only take such measures to prevent the interruption of firm service
or to protect the physical or operational integrity of the system. Whenever
COMPANY notifies affected parties that an OFO or critical period exists on its
pipeline system under one of the provisions referenced below, such notice shall
describe the condition and the specific responses required from the affected
parties. COMPANY will release an OFO as soon as system conditions make such
release feasible and COMPANY will not wait until the start of a Gas Day if release
of the OFO is possible on an intraday basis. Each potential OFO condition set
forth below contains the amount of notice COMPANY is required to give prior to
implementing the OFO, if applicable, and Section 18 of these General Terms and
Conditions states the notification method applicable. COMPANY will not assess any
penalties under the provisions set forth below on an intraday basis, even if the
applicable notice becomes effective during the Gas Day.
