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
(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 Multiple bids may be submitted, and bids may be withdrawn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.
