GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

9. CAPACITY RELEASE (Continued)

 

(9) The minimum rate expressed in dollars and cents or

percentage of Maximum Tariff Rate, term, and quantity of

capacity Releasing Shipper shall accept, if any, and

whether bids using a volumetric rate for the collection

of Reservation or Capacity and Deliverability Charges

will be accepted and whether Releasing Shipper requires

a volumetric commitment. The maximum volumetric rate

that may be bid shall not exceed the one hundred percent

100%) load factor equivalent of the maximum Reservation

or Capacity and Deliverability reservation rates. The

one hundred percent (100%) load factor equivalent for such

rates equals the overrun rate for the applicable service

being released as set forth on the effective rate tariff

sheets. Trunkline shall support volumetric releases with

volumetric commitments by fully accounting for volumetric

and reservation components, consistent with the rules and

regulations enunciated by the Commission. The maximum

reservation rate that may be bid shall not exceed the

Maximum Rate for the applicable service being released as

set forth on the applicable currently effective tariff

sheets. Notwithstanding the above, no rate limitation

shall apply to a capacity release for a period of one year

or less if the release is to take effect on or before one

year from the date on which Trunkline is notified of the

release;

 

(10) The duration of the posting which may not be less than

the minimum bid period specified in Section 9.4(B)

herein;

 

(11) The best bid criterion, the method by which volumetric

or contingent bids will be evaluated, and any alternate,

objective and nondiscriminatory method for breaking

ties. The best bid evaluation method established by

Releasing Shipper must be objectively stated, applicable

to all PRS or Replacement Shippers and not unduly

discriminatory and shall enable Trunkline to rank the

bids received by utilizing the weight assigned by

Releasing Shipper to each element of the Shipper Notice;

 

(12) If the release is for any period of thirty-one (31) days or

less and is exempt from bidding in accordance with Section

9.3(A), the Releasing Shipper may designate in the Shipper

Notice the winning bid criterion to be the first acceptable

bid received;
