The proposed rules update curtailment priorities and programs contained in Oil and Gas Docket, Gas Utilities Division No. 20-62,505, commonly known as Order 489.  The proposed curtailment priorities are in effect during a curtailment event to provide for the protection of natural gas human needs customers and electric generation customers.
