Transporter's Rate Schedules shall be made by submitting to Transporter a fully-completed Request for

Service Form in the form included in this Tariff and by otherwise complying with all of the provisions of

this Section 3. Requests for amended Service Agreements shall be made on a form provided or approved by

Transporter. The completed request for amended Service Agreements shall be forwarded to Transporter through

Transporter's EBB, or other method of delivery approved by Transporter. A Shipper or prospective Shipper

seeking new or increased service from Transporter, including a prospective bidder for released capacity

under the provisions of Section 14 of the General Terms and Conditions, is referred to as "Requestor" in

names of the parties satisfying the conditions of this Section 3 and approved to bid for firm service,

including released capacity under the provisions of Section 14 of the General Terms and Conditions. A

Requestor may not bid for service unless its name appears on the Approved Bidder List. The Approved Bidder

List shall further reflect whether Requestor is eligible to enter into an agreement through electronic

communications and otherwise complies with the requirements of Section 5.7 of the General Terms and

Conditions. A Requestor may be removed from the Approved Bidder List if (i) Transporter later determines
