GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

19. NEGOTIATED RATES

 

19.1 Availability. Shipper and Transporter may agree to Negotiated

Rates for a specific term of service under any open-access rate schedule

contained in this tariff, provided that Shipper has not acquired its

capacity through a temporary capacity release transaction pursuant to

Section 22 of the General Terms and Conditions of this tariff. The

rates shown on Transporter's Statement of Rates are available as

Recourse Rates for any Shipper that does not negotiate a rate with

Transporter.

 

19.2 Applicability.

 

(a) Existing Service. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary

contained in this tariff, Transporter and Shipper may mutually

agree to Negotiated Rates and contract term for all or any portion

of the capacity under any existing open-access service agreement,

provided that Shipper has not acquired its capacity through a

temporary capacity release. If only a portion of the capacity

under any existing open-access service agreement will be priced at

Negotiated Rates, the original service agreement must first be

bifurcated, and Recourse Rates will continue to apply to the

service agreement not subject to the Negotiated Rates.

 

(b) New Service.

 

(1) Requests for Service. Transporter and Shipper may

mutually agree to Negotiated Rates and contract term for any

available capacity that is requested by Shipper, provided

that such capacity has been posted for informational

purposes, but is not posted for bid at the time of Shipper's

request. If Shipper and Transporter mutually agree on a

Negotiated Rate for the capacity, Transporter will post the

terms of any such pre-arranged agreement in accordance with

Section 25.2 of the General Terms and Conditions of

Transporter's tariff, and other parties will have an

opportunity to bid on the capacity. The pre-arranged

Shipper will have a one-time right to match any higher bid

in order to retain the capacity.
