transaction to assign service to a designated Replacement Shipper for a period of 31 days or less, as

described in Section 14.2(a)(i) above: (i) shall not roll over, extend, or otherwise continue that release

beyond its original term without complying with the posting and competitive bidding requirements applicable

to all non-exempt transactions, as set forth in this Section, unless the rollover, extension, or

continuation is at the maximum rate, meets all of the terms and conditions of the Release Notice, and

qualifies as an exempt transaction under Section 14.2(a) above; provided, however, during the period between

March 27, 2000 through September 30, 2002, any such rollover, extension, or continuation must comply with

the ordinary posting and competitive bidding requirements applicable to all non-exempt transactions as set

forth in this Section; and (ii) shall not, pursuant to the short-term exemption of Section 14.2(a)(i), re-

release to the same Replacement Shipper within 28 days after termination of the earlier release period

without fully complying with the ordinary posting and competitive bidding requirements applicable to all

non-exempt transactions, as set forth in this Section, unless the re-release is at the maximum rate, meets

all of the terms and conditions of the Release Notice, and qualifies as an exempt transaction under Section

14.2(a) above; provided, however, during the period between March 27, 2000 through September 30, 2002, any

such re-release must comply with the ordinary posting and competitive bidding requirements applicable to all
