GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

(b) The volume in a Qualified Bid may not be less than

the minimum volume required for an Eligible Firm Transportation

Agreement under KMIP's Tariff. Neither the volume nor the release

term specified in a Qualified Bid may exceed the maximum volume or

term specified in a Capacity Release Request, unless the Capacity

Release Request specifically allows otherwise. A Qualified Bidder

must accept all the terms and conditions of a Capacity Release

Request submitted under Section 14.4 (involving a Prearranged

Release) except for the level of the reservation charge and the MDQ,

unless the Capacity Release Request specifically allows otherwise.

 

(c) For releases of a term of more than one (1) year,

a Qualified Bidder may not bid rates which would exceed KMIP's

maximum reservation charge applicable to the Eligible Firm

Transportation Agreement capacity, even if the Original Shipper is

paying a Negotiated Rate or a rate under a Negotiated Rate Formula

pursuant to Section 31 of these General Terms and Conditions. The

maximum Qualified Bid reservation charge includes all demand

surcharges, including all direct-billed charges which are or may

become applicable to the Eligible Firm Transportation Agreement

capacity.

 

(d) All Qualified Bids shall provide for payment of

maximum commodity charges under KMIP's Tariff for the capacity bid,

as well as all other applicable add-on charges and surcharges under

KMIP's Tariff, such as, but not limited to, ACA, and Fuel Gas and

Unaccounted For Gas, if applicable.

 

(e) A Qualified Bid received by KMIP during an open

season shall be posted by KMIP on its Interactive Website system,

without the name of the Qualified Bidder. A Qualified Bid may be

withdrawn by the Qualified Bidder prior to the close of the open

season, but may not be withdrawn thereafter. Following such

withdrawal, the Qualified Bidder cannot bid for the same capacity

during the open season at a lower rate.

 

(f) All Qualified Bids must be consistent with all

provisions of KMIP's Tariff. Any Qualified Bid inconsistent with

KMIP's Tariff or the applicable Capacity Release Request shall be

null and void.
