14. RESERVATION OF CAPACITY FOR FUTURE EXPANSION PROJECTS

 

Transporter may elect to reserve for a future expansion project any unsubscribed firm capacity or

capacity under expiring or terminating firm transportation agreements where such agreements do not

carry a right of first refusal or where Shipper does not exercise its right of first refusal.

Transporter may only reserve capacity for a future expansion project for which an open season for the

expansion has been held or will be held within one (1) year of the date that Transporter posts such

capacity as being reserved. Capacity reserved under this Section may be reserved for up to one (1) year

prior to Transporter filing for certificate approval for the proposed expansion, and thereafter until

such expansion is placed into service.

 

Capacity reserved under this Section will be made available for transportation service on a limited-

term basis up to the in-service date of the expansion project. For such limited-term service

agreements, Transporter reserves the right to limit any Shipper extension rights, including the right

of first refusal, within the service agreement. The availability of limited-term capacity, including

any limitations on the extension rights of such capacity, will be posted on Transporter's Web Site.

 

Prior to reserving capacity for a future expansion project under this Section, Transporter must first

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

bidding through an open season for a time period of at least five (5) business days, pursuant to

Section 2.1 (g) of the General Terms and Conditions of this FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No.

1. Capacity that remains available after the five (5) business day posting may be reserved by

Transporter by means of a posting on Transporter's Web Site that shall include:

 

a) a description of the proposed expansion project for which the capacity will be

reserved;

b) the total quantity of capacity to be reserved;

c) the location of the reserved capacity on Transporter's system;

d) the anticipated timing of an open season for the reserved capacity in connection with

the proposed expansion project;

e) the projected in-service date of the proposed expansion project; and

f) on an on-going basis, how much of the reserved capacity has been sold on a limited-

term basis that would otherwise be eligible for a right of first refusal.

 

Transporter shall make reasonable efforts to update the reservation posting up to the in-service date

of the project to reflect any material changes in the scope of the project.

 

Transporter shall make a non-binding solicitation for turnback capacity from Transporter's existing

Shippers to serve the expansion project. Transporter shall post a non-binding solicitation for turnback

capacity on its Web Site no later than ninety (90) days after the close of the expansion project's open

season, specifying the minimum term for a response to the solicitation.

 

Any capacity reserved for a project that does not go forward for any reason shall be reposted as

generally available within thirty (30) days of the date the capacity becomes available.
