9.2 Competitive Bidding Procedure:

 

(a) Either Transporter or Releasing Shipper shall post on

Transporter's electronic bulletin board each offer to release

for the length of time specified pursuant to Section 9.1 of

the General Terms and Conditions, and shall post all of the

other information required pursuant to Section 9.1 of the

General Terms and Conditions.

 

(b) Potential Replacement Shippers may tender to Transporter bids

to accept an offer posted on the electronic bulletin board

which must be received by Transporter prior to the expiration

of the time for posting of such an offer.

 

(c) Subject to the requirements of Section 9.2(e), any bid may

include an offer to pay a rate greater than or equal to

Transporter's Maximum Reservation Fee set forth on the

Statement of Rates, regardless of the Reservation Fee

provided in the Releasing Shipper's Service Agreement. Any

bid for a release that is made on a volumetric basis may

include an offer to pay up to Transporter's Maximum Aggregate

Rate set forth on the Statement of Rates regardless of the

Aggregate Rate, provided in the Releasing Shipper's Service

Agreement.

(d) No bidder may submit more than one bid for the same capacity,

nor may any bidder submit a bid when there is an open bid for

the same capacity submitted by an affiliate or a person

acting in conjunction with the bidder. Any bid may be

withdrawn at any time prior to the closing of the bid period,

provided that neither the bidder nor any of its affiliates

nor any party acting in conjunction with the bidder may

resubmit a lower bid (although any such person may submit a

higher bid) than the withdrawn bid.

 

(e) Except as stated in this Section 9.2(e), a bidder may not bid

a reservation charge(s) less than the minimum reservation

charge(s) nor more than the sum of the maximum reservation

charge(s) and reservation surcharge(s), nor may the quantity

or the term of the release of such bid exceed the maximum

quantity or term specified by the Releasing Shipper. No

maximum rate limitation applies to a release of capacity for

a period of one year or less if the release is to take effect

on or before one year from the date on which Transporter is

notified of the release.
