48. RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL PROCEDURES

 

48.1 (a) This section sets forth the provisions which shall apply to Buyers eligible

for a right of first refusal. A Buyer is eligible for a right of first

refusal if the Buyer is receiving firm service at the applicable maximum rate

pursuant to a Service Agreement with either (1) a term of service of at least

twelve consecutive months or (2) for a service which is not available for 12

consecutive months, a contract term of more than one year. Additionally, a

Buyer receiving firm service at less than the applicable maximum rate pursuant

to a Service Agreement executed prior to March 26, 2000 that meets the

foregoing term criteria, will also be eligible for a right of first refusal;

provided however, the right of first refusal will not apply to a re-executed

Service Agreement unless it is at the applicable maximum rate.

 

(b) For firm transportation service performed under a Part 284 Rate Schedule with

a primary term of one (1) year or more and not subject to Natural Gas Act

Section 7(b) abandonment requirements, Seller or Buyer may provide written

notice of its intent to terminate the firm service agreement between Seller

and Buyer consistent with the notice of termination provisions set forth in

such service agreement. If Buyer provides notice of termination to Seller and

Buyer may desire to continue to receive all or a portion of its service

entitlement under such service agreement, then Buyer must include in its

notice an express, affirmative statement that Buyer may desire to continue to

receive all or a portion of its service entitlement under the service

agreement. If Seller provides notice of termination to Buyer, and Buyer may

desire to continue to receive all or a portion of its service entitlement

under such service agreement, then Buyer must provide within fifteen (15) days

of receipt of Seller's notice, written notice to Seller that Buyer may desire

to continue to receive all or a portion of its service entitlement under such

service agreement. If Buyer provides timely notification to Seller that it

may desire to continue to receive all or a portion of its service entitlement,

then the provisions set forth below shall apply. If Buyer fails to provide

timely notification to Seller that it may desire to continue to receive all or

a portion of its service entitlement, then the provisions of Section 48.7

shall apply.

 

48.2 Upon receipt of Buyer's notice pursuant to Section 48.1(b), Seller shall post on

1Line at least one hundred fifty (150) days, but no more than one year, prior to the

expiration of the service agreement all relevant provisions pertaining to such

service agreement; provided, however, if the service agreement provides for a notice

of termination period that is less than one hundred eighty (180) days, then Seller

shall post the relevant provisions relating to such service agreement within 30 days

from the date Seller receives Buyer's notice pursuant to Section 48.1(b). Seller

shall solicit, for a minimum of fifteen (15) and a maximum of thirty (30) days

following such posting, bids for service.
