ITS RATE SCHEDULE

INTERRUPTIBLE TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Cont'd)

 

(d) The interconnections at which service shall be made available under this Rate Schedule will be

maintained on a Master List of Interconnections (MLI) posted by Transporter on its Electronic Bulletin Board

(EBB). The interconnection points on the MLI shall be incorporated by reference in Shipper's ITS Service

Agreements.

 

(e) During any Month, Shipper shall not be permitted to increase its existing flowing quantities

under this Rate Schedule, regardless of the Transportation Quantity set forth in Shippers's ITS Service

Agreement, if such increase would cause a reduction of existing quantities flowing on Transporter's system

under any other Service Agreement of equal or higher priority. A scheduled temporary reduction in the

quantities being transported, if requested by Shipper and approved by Transporter, shall not reduce the level

of Shipper's existing quantities flowing on Transporter's system for purposes of this paragraph.

 

(f) Service rights under an ITS Service Agreement may not be released and assigned.

 

3. BIDDING PROCEDURE

 

(a) Transporter shall post a notice on its EBB setting forth: (i) the interruptible transportation

capacity it anticipates will be available for the upcoming Month at each applicable receipt and delivery

point; and (ii) the Minimum Bid Rate, inclusive of applicable surcharges for such capacity. The Minimum Bid

Rate shall not be higher than the total effective Maximum ITS Rate set forth in Transporter's Tariff.

 

(b) Shippers seeking to obtain all or a portion of that capacity shall, through Transporter's EBB,

submit their bids for the capacity to Transporter, together with their nominations of service (i.e., the

quantity bid at each nominated point) under the provisions of Section 6 (Nominating, Scheduling, and

Monitoring) of the General Terms and Conditions. Multiple bids may be submitted, and bids may be withdrawn

prior to the nomination deadline. Bids must comply with Section 3(c) below. All bidding shall be open until

the nomination deadline. Transporter shall post on its EBB all bids received including quantities and receipt

and delivery points.

 

(c) Shipper's bid for capacity under this Rate Schedule shall state the rate Shipper is offering to

pay for the service it has nominated in terms of cents per Dth (¢/Dth) to the nearest hundredth of a cent

(00.00¢). Shipper's bid rate shall be no lower than the Minimum Bid Rate and no higher than the total

effective Maximum ITS Rate as set forth on Sheet No. 28 of this Tariff. Bids submitted for higher than the

Maximum ITS Rate shall be deemed to be at the Maximum ITS Rate. Bids submitted for higher than a previously

agreed to discounted rate shall be deemed to supersede such discounted rate. Transporter may reject any bids:

(i) for an amount lower than the Minimum Bid Rate; or (ii) from bidders that do not currently have an ITS

Service Agreement with Transporter.
