(Cont'd)

 

(c) From 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Central Time, each day during the bidding

period, Texas Gas will accept bids for the capacity stated in the auction

notice either electronically through Texas Gas' Internet Website, by email,

or by facsimile as specifically provided in the Auction Notice.

 

(i) All initial bids must be submitted on a Transportation Request Form

as provided in Section 8 and must indicate whether a bidder is

willing to accept a partial award. All bids must include a term,

rate, Contract Demand, and applicable points;

 

(ii) Point(s) included in the bid may vary from the Requested Points;

however, the capacity associated with any receipt / delivery point

combination(s) bid must utilize some portion of the capacity

specified in the auction notice.

 

(iii) All bids shall be binding on the bidder upon conclusion of the

bidding period. A bid can be withdrawn or changed during the

bidding period; however, any new or changed bid cannot have a lesser

NPV than the bidder's previous bid.

 

(iv) Texas Gas may reject on not unduly discriminatory basis any bid or

Request for Service that is for a rate less than the maximum rate

Texas Gas is authorized to charge or which would require the use of

negotiated rate authority.

that is greater than the capacity available in the auction notice,

as set forth in Section 11.1(b)(i), as applicable; (2) may

detrimentally impact the operational integrity of Texas Gas' system;

(3) do not satisfy the terms of the auction notice; (4) contain

terms and conditions inconsistent with Texas Gas' FERC Gas Tariff;

disproportionate to the service requested.

 

(vi) No contingent bids will be accepted; however, to the extent storage

capacity is being auctioned, a party bidding on storage under Rate

Schedule FSS may combine its bid with a bid for firm transportation

capacity under Rate Schedules FT and STF if bidding against parties

submitting bids under Rate Schedules NNS or NNL.

 

(d) During the bidding period, Texas Gas will make reasonable efforts to

evaluate discounted rate and / or capacity requests submitted as bids and

to (i) post the Contract Demand, Requested Points, proposed rate and NPV

from acceptable bids and (ii) notify the bidder if such Requests for

Service are rejected. The reasons for rejection will be made available to

the bidder and communicated in a timely manner.
