GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

CAPACITY RESERVED FOR EXPANSION PROJECTS

 

27. CAPACITY RESERVED FOR EXPANSION PROJECTS

 

27.1 Notwithstanding any other provision of this tariff, Pipeline reserves the right to reserve

for expansion projects any unsubscribed capacity or capacity under expiring or terminating

Service Agreements where such Agreements do not have a ROFR or Customer does not exercise

its ROFR pursuant to the terms of this Section 27.

 

27.2 Prior to reserving capacity under this Section 27, Pipeline shall post for bidding and

award the capacity using the procedures of GT&C Section 26. Capacity will be posted for

at least five (5) Business Days before it is reserved. As part of its posting, Pipeline

shall have the right to establish minimum terms and conditions equivalent to those

applicable to the open season that Pipeline has held or will hold in connection with a

future expansion project. In the event that the open season held in connection with the

future expansion project imposes minimum terms and conditions that are materially

different than those stated in the posting for reserving capacity, Pipeline shall re-post

for bidding and award the reserved capacity using the same minimum terms and conditions as

were imposed in the expansion project open season.

 

27.3 Pipeline may continue to reserve capacity under this Section 27 until the expansion project

is placed in service; provided, however, that the reservation of capacity shall terminate

one (1) year from the date that the notice was posted if Pipeline has not filed a

certificate application for an expansion project or projects or if the expansion project

for which the capacity is reserved does not go forward for any reason.

 

27.4 Pipeline shall maintain on its Website a notice describing the capacity that Pipeline has

reserved under this Section 27. Pipeline's notice shall include: (1) a brief description

of its expansion projects; (2) the quantity of capacity to be reserved; (3) the location

of the proposed reserved capacity on Pipeline's system, including the proposed Receipt and

Delivery Points and associated quantities at those points; (4) the projected in-service

date of the expansion project; (5) information regarding the timing of the open season or

other solicitation of bids for participation in the expansion project; and (6) the amount

of reserved capacity that has been sold on an interim basis. The posted notice shall be

updated from time to time, to reflect the sales of reserved capacity on an interim basis,

expansion projects that have been placed in service, and material changes in the scope of

any future expansion project affecting the level or nature of reserved capacity.

 

27.5 If unsubscribed capacity, that has been posted for bid remains unsubscribed after posting,

and if such unsubscribed capacity is insufficient to serve the expansion project, the

reservation posting or open season will include a non-binding solicitation for turnback

capacity from Pipeline's existing Customers to serve the expansion project. Pipeline

shall post on its Website a non-binding solicitation for expansion project related

turnback capacity no later than ninety (90) days after the close of an expansion project's

open season specifying the minimum term for a response to the solicitation.

 

27.6 Any capacity reserved under this Section 27 shall be made available pursuant to GT&C

Section 26 for a limited term or terms calculated to end no later than the in-service date

of the expansion project(s). For such limited-term agreements, Pipeline reserves the

right to limit any roll-over or renewal rights provided in the Service Agreement and any

ROFR, and shall state these limitations in its capacity posting. Any capacity reserved

for a project that does not go forward for any reason shall be re-posted as generally

available within thirty (30) days of the date the capacity becomes available, with the

exception of capacity committed to in contracts entered into on an interim limited term

basis until the in-service date of any expansion facilities during the period the capacity

was reserved.
