GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

(i) Reserved Capacity. Transporter may elect to reserve for future

expansion projects any unsubscribed capacity or capacity under expiring or

terminating service agreements where such agreements do not have a right of

first refusal or Shipper does not exercise its right of first refusal

("Available Reservation Capacity"). If Transporter elects to reserve

Available Reservation Capacity, it will notify Shippers of its intent as part

of Transporter's posting of the Available Reservation Capacity under this

Section 4.2(i). Available Reservation Capacity may be reserved for up to one

year prior to the Transporter filing for Natural Gas Act Section 7(c)

certificate approval for construction of the proposed expansion and

thereafter until such expansion is placed into service. Transporter may only

reserve Available Reservation Capacity for a future expansion project for

which an open season has been held or will be held within one (1) year of the

date that Transporter posts such Available Reservation Capacity as being

reserved. Any Available Reservation Capacity reserved under this Section

4.2(i) will be made available for transportation service pursuant to

Transporter's General Terms and Conditions on a limited-term basis up to the

in-service date of the expansion project(s). Transporter reserves the right

to limit any extension rights provided in the Service Agreements and pursuant

to Section 4.1 of the General Terms and Conditions governing rights of first

refusal commensurate with the proposed in-service date of the expansion

project.

 

Prior to reserving Available Reservation Capacity for future expansion

projects, Transporter will first make such capacity generally available to

any Shipper or potential Shipper by posting such Available Reservation

Capacity for bidding through an open season for a time period of at least

five (5) business days. This Available Reservation Capacity open season

posting will contain the posting information required by General Terms and

Conditions Section 4.2(a)(i) - (vi) and will conform to the bidding and

capacity award procedures of General Terms and Conditions Sections 4.2(b) -

(g). When the Available Reservation Capacity open season is held prior to

the expansion project open season, Transporter will have the right to state

in the Available Reservation Capacity open season posting minimum terms and

conditions for bids that would be acceptable for consideration that are the

same as the minimum terms and conditions anticipated for the future expansion

project open season. In the event that the subsequent expansion project open

season imposes minimum terms and conditions that are materially different

from the terms and conditions imposed in the previous Available Reservation

Capacity open season, Transporter will hold another open season for the

Available Reservation Capacity that uses the same minimum terms and

conditions as were imposed for the expansion project open season. If the

expansion project open season is held prior to or during the Available

Reservation Capacity open season, Transporter will use the same minimum terms

and conditions as used for the expansion project open season.
