(Continued)

 

as they may be adjusted from time to time by Transporter. Transporter shall

have the right to reject any bids that: (i) are for a rate that is less than

the minimum rate stated in Transporter's posting of that capacity; (ii) do

not satisfy any of the other terms specified in the posting; or (iii) include

conditions or provisions that Transporter determines, in its reasonable

discretion, to be unacceptable.

 

(c) Assessing Bids.

 

(1) Transporter shall assess the bids to assure that capacity is

available to serve the precise delivery point(s) requested. If capacity

is not available, Transporter shall reject the bids and advise Shipper.

Shipper notifies Transporter of that decision through Transporter's EBB

within one hour of Transporter's notice to that Shipper of the pro rata
