GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Cont'd)

 

Prior to reserving Available Reservation Capacity for future expansion projects, Transporter shall

first make such capacity generally available to any Shipper or potential Shipper by posting such Available

Reservation Capacity for bidding through an open season for a time period of at least five (5) business days.

This Available Reservation Capacity open season posting shall contain the posting information required by

General Terms and Conditions Section 4.2(a)(i) - (vi) and shall conform to the bidding and capacity award

procedures of General Terms and Conditions Sections 4.2(b) - (g). When the Available Reservation Capacity

open season is held prior to the expansion project open season, Transporter shall have the right to state in

the Available Reservation Capacity open season posting minimum terms and conditions for bids that would be

acceptable for consideration that are the same as the minimum terms and conditions anticipated for the future

expansion project open season. In the event that the subsequent expansion project open season imposes minimum

terms and conditions that are materially different from the terms and conditions imposed in the previous

Available Reservation Capacity open season, Transporter shall hold another open season for the Available

Reservation Capacity that uses the same minimum terms and conditions as were imposed for the expansion project

open season. If the expansion project open season is held prior to or during the Available Reservation

Capacity open season, Transporter shall use the same minimum terms and conditions as used for the expansion

project open season.

 

Available Reservation Capacity may only be reserved in the 12-month period prior to the filing of the

7(c) certificate application or request for prior notice authorization pursuant to Transporter's blanket

construction certificate. Any Available Reservation Capacity reserved pursuant to this Section 4.2(i) for an

expansion project that does not go forward because Transporter does not file any required application with the

Commission within one year from such reservation date, or because Transporter ultimately does not receive

authorization, shall be posted as generally available within 30 days of the date the capacity becomes available

subject to then existing commitments for the capacity.

 

Transporter postings for reserved Available Reservation Capacity shall include the following

information: (a) a description of the expansion project for which the capacity will be reserved; (b) the

total quantity of capacity to be reserved; (c) the location of the proposed reserved capacity on the pipeline

system; (d) whether, and if so, when Transporter anticipates that an open season for the capacity will be held

or it will otherwise be posted for bids under the expansion; (e) the projected in-service date of the

expansion projects; and (f) on a rolling basis, how much of the reserved capacity has been sold on a limited-

term basis. Transporter shall make reasonable efforts to update the reservation posting to reflect material

changes in the expansion project up to the in-service date of the expansion project. The reservation posting

shall also include a non-binding solicitation (or reverse open-season) for turnback capacity from

Transporter's existing shippers to serve the expansion project, provided that Transporter shall post the non-

binding solicitation for turnback capacity no later than 90 days after the close of the expansion project open

season.
