Subject: Supply Shortage OFO Communication
Due to the anticipated impacts associated with Enbridge's posted
maintenance beginning February 27, 2019 along with the reduced
deliverability at Jackson Prairie, Northwest would like to provide
additional information on how a potential Supply Shortage OFO will be
administered in addition to the communication that was provided in the All
Shipper Notice No. 19-043.
If Shippers' OFO compliance after the completion of the evening nomination
cycle is insufficient to bring the primary firm nomination requests down to
the greater of the physical design capacity or the posted operational
capacity, Northwest will invoke a Supply Shortage OFO by posting an All
Shipper Notice. Below are the actions that will take place under each OFO
category if such Supply Shortage OFO is invoked.
Realignment OFO - Cut previously scheduled quantities during the
Intraday 1 cycle going through the constraint point associated with
any Shipper subject to a Realignment OFO that has failed to comply
with such Realignment OFO. Shippers that are subject to the
Realignment cuts may need to reduce load to avoid Entitlement
penalties pursuant to 14.6 of the General Terms and Conditions of
Contract-specific OFO and Must-flow OFO - Shippers subject to a
Contract-specific or Must-flow OFO will then have until the Intraday
1 nomination cycle to comply by either nominating the necessary
displacement gas or taking other actions acceptable to Northwest.
If, after exerting good faith efforts, Shipper is unable to obtain
physical supply at any point on the opposite side of the constraint
point, then in order to avoid penalties for noncompliance, Shipper
must attest to such facts by providing Northwest with an acceptable
affidavit, executed by an officer of the company. Any such affidavit
must be provided to Transporter prior to the Intraday 1 nomination
cycle for Shipper to be exempt from penalties.
Supply Shortage OFO - Allocate the greater of the physical design
capacity or posted operational capacity by allocating Shipper's
previously scheduled primary firm scheduled quantities pro rata
based on the Shipper's primary firm corridor rights through the OFO
constraint point in the constraint direction. Shippers that are
subject to Supply Shortage OFO actions may need to reduce load to
avoid Entitlement penalties pursuant to 14.6 of the General Terms
and Conditions of the Tariff.
Any Shipper that fails to comply with its OFO obligations will be subject
to the OFO penalties outlined in Section 14.15 of General Terms and
Conditions of Northwest's tariff.
Northwest has posted on its website the presentation that was associated
with the conference call on Supply Shortage OFO tariff filing. The
