GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Capacity Release

 

13. Whether the Releasing Customer will entertain contingent bids, and if so, (a)

the time period during which each contingent bidder must clear its

contingency, and (b) whether, and for what time period, the next-highest

bidder will be utilizing the subject capacity, or if no winning bidder is

currently utilizing the subject capacity, then to the bidder who submitted

its winning bid first in time; provided that if a Designated Replacement

Customer submits a "winning bid," then Pipeline must contract with such

Designated Replacement Customer.

 

14. Whether the Replacement Customer is an asset manager as defined in the

Commission's Regulations, 18 C.F.R. Section 284.8(h)(3) (2008) and whether

the offer is to be exempt from bidding pursuant to Section 23.2.E.2, above.

If the offer is to be exempt from bidding, the Releasing Customer must

disclose the asset manager's obligation to deliver gas to, or purchase from,

the Releasing Customer.

 

15. Whether the Replacement Customer is a marketer participating in a state-

regulated retail access program as defined in the Commission's Regulations,

18 C.F.R Section 284.8(h)(4) (2008) and whether the offer is to be exempt

from bidding pursuant to Section 23.2.E.3, above.

 

16. Any other conditions applicable to the release.

a. For releases with a term greater than one year, if the release

includes the aggregation of capacity on other pipelines in addition to

Pipeline, the maximum rate to be charged for such aggregated capacity

(by all parties) to Replacement Customer may not exceed the sum of the

maximum tariff rates applicable to each affected pipeline's service.

Releasing Customer is responsible for posting such aggregate releases

on the bulletin board of each pipeline upon which capacity is

released.

 

b. With the consent of the affected Releasing Customers, Pipeline may

combine releases posted by several Releasing Customers into one

replacement contract to improve marketability.

 

c. When releasing capacity under Rate Schedules GSS or GSS-E during the

Minimum Turnover Period, the Releasing Customer will be required to

respond to a query asking whether a specific Minimum Turnover

obligation (as described in, and if required by, Section 8.7 of Rate

Schedule GSS, Section 8.6 of Rate Schedule GSS-E, and GT&C Section

35.3.D) is a term of the release.

i. If a Minimum Turnover obligation is a term of the release, the

Releasing Customer will be prompted to specify the Minimum

Turnover obligation as either:

(1) a specific volume, or

(2) a specific percentage of the capacity being released.

 

ii. If a Minimum Turnover obligation is a term of the release and

the release includes a recall option, the Releasing Customer

will be required to respond to a query asking whether a method

of allocating a Minimum Turnover obligation with respect to

recalled capacity in the event of a recall for or during the

Minimum Turnover Period is a term of the release. If a method

of allocation is a term of the release, the Releasing Customer

will be prompted to specify one of the following methods:

(1) Minimum Turnover obligation reverts entirely to

Releasing Customer, or

(2) Minimum Turnover obligation remains entirely with

Replacement Customer, or

(3) Minimum Turnover obligation is allocated between

Releasing and Replacement Customers based on the number

of days the capacity was held during the Minimum

Turnover Period and the amount of capacity recalled.
