Successful Bidder(s) whose bid satisfies all the minimum terms specified in

Replacement Shippers shall not be posted by Transporter during the bidding

period, and Transporter shall begin accepting bids immediately. Upon

Transporter's receipt of a Release Notice, Transporter shall evaluate the

revised Release Notice. Following Transporter's determination that a Release

relevant to the release shall remain on Transporter's electronic bulletin
