TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

33. RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL UPON TERMINATION OF FIRM SHIPPER'S

SERVICE AGREEMENT (Continued)

 

33.9 Unless GTN and Shipper expressly agree otherwise in Shipper's

service agreement, a Shipper who has entered into an interim

service agreement pursuant to Paragraph 18.1(b) or Paragraph 32

of these Transportation General Terms and Conditions may not

elect to extend such interim service agreement pursuant to this

Paragraph 33.

 

33.10 A Shipper paying a discounted rate or a negotiated rate will not

have the Right of First Refusal, unless otherwise agreed to in

writing by GTN. GTN shall offer Rights of First Refusal on a not

unduly discriminatory basis.

 

33.11 Expansion Project Open Seasons: When GTN has already announced an

expansion project, and following an original capacity holder's

notification to terminate or not to terminate, GTN may subject a

Shipper's capacity to the expansion project open season bidding

process, rather than a separate open bidding process, no later

than 3 months prior to the service agreement expiration. For

those Shippers that elect not to terminate, in order to match an

accepted expansion bid, Shipper may be required to meet the lowest

accepted expansion bid(s), which meet the minimum terms and

conditions that GTN imposes in the expansion project open season.

If there are no acceptable expansion bids received, GTN will hold

a subsequent open season for expiring contracts, within 10

business days, consistent with Sections 33.1 and 33.2 of this

Paragraph, whichever applies. GTN will satisfy expansion capacity

needs, in the following order, with:

 

(1) Unsubscribed long-term firm capacity that has been

reserved pursuant to Paragraph 32 of these

Transportation General Terms and Conditions;

(2) Capacity that is subject to Transporter's right-of-

first-refusal tariff provisions that is included in

an expansion open season bidding process;

(3) Capacity that is turned back to Transporter as part

of Transporter's non-binding solicitation for

expansion project related turnback capacity which

specifies the minimum term for a response to the

solicitation; and

(4) Expansion capacity.
