TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

28. CAPACITY RELEASE (Continued)

 

28.10 Crediting, Billing Adjustments and Refunds (Continued)

 

(f) In the event Releasing Shipper's Transportation Service

Agreement is terminated pursuant to these Transportation

General Terms and Conditions, and thirty (30) days notice has

been provided to Replacement Shipper(s), a Replacement

Shipper that currently holds temporary release capacity has

the right to elect to contract with GTN at the Replacement

Shipper's MDQ for the remaining term of its release contract

and at the lesser of (1) the Releasing Shipper's original

contract rate, or (2) the maximum recourse rate, provided

that the Replacement Shipper meets GTN's credit-worthiness

standards for Firm Transportation Service. The Replacement

Shipper shall make its election by the end of the thirty (30)

day notice period.

 

If a Replacement Shipper does not elect to contract with GTN

at its replacement MDQ for the remaining term of its release

contract and at the rate level that the Releasing Shipper

originally contracted for, GTN shall have the right to

terminate the Replacement Shipper's Transportation Service

Agreement following the election period and offer such

capacity through an open season posting that will subject the

capacity to competitive bidding. In the event Transporter

terminates service, Transporter may exercise all remedies

available to it hereunder, at law or in equity.

 

Replacement Shippers with prospective claims to temporary

release capacity will not have rights to such capacity.

Prospective claims to permanent releases of capacity will be

honored to the extent that a Replacement Shipper meets GTN's

credit-worthiness standards for Firm Transportation Service.
