GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

(c) Notice by Transporter. Releasing Shipper's Notice, including the

identity of the Releasing Shipper, shall be posted on Transporter's

Web Site until the expiration of the applicable Bid Period. At the

Releasing Shipper's request Transporter may, but shall not be

obligated to, take other action to market any capacity which the

Releasing Shipper desires to release, and the Releasing Shipper may

search for any party to take its capacity under this Section 26.

 

(d) Bids. Only Approved Bidders that have executed a Capacity Release

Umbrella Agreement, the form of which is contained in this Tariff, may

bid on capacity which the Releasing Shipper proposes to release. Bids

shall be made electronically during the Bid Period on an open bidding

basis, provided that the bidders' names shall not be posted except for

the winning bidder. Transporter shall select the bid to be accepted in

accordance with Section 26.5(b)(g). If permitted by Releasing

Shipper's Notice, and subject to the provisions thereof, any bid may

be made contingent upon the bidder's acquiring related upstream or

downstream capacity identified in the bid. Any bidder making such a

contingent bid shall confirm that the contingency has been satisfied

or eliminated according to the procedures set forth in Releasing

Shipper's Notice, failing which the bid shall no longer be considered

a valid bid.

 

(e) If the transportation service provider requires amendments for each

release, the transportation service provider should automate the

process of amending contracts and this may be the subject of a global

agreement between the parties.

 

(f) Rates. No rate cap applies to releases of capacity for a period of one

year or less only when the release is to take effect on or before

one year from the date on which the pipeline is notified of the

release.

 

For releases of capacity with terms of greater than one year, the

maximum rate for a volumetric release shall not exceed the volumetric

reservation charge for the released capacity plus all applicable

surcharges; and the maximum rate for all other releases with terms of

greater than one year shall be the applicable maximum reservation

rate plus all applicable surcharges set forth in this FERC Gas tariff,

notwithstanding any discounts then in effect for the Releasing Shipper.

 

(g) There should be no communication of the identity of non-winning, non-

prearranged bidders in the Offer Upload Final Disposition.

 

The identity of the winning bidder(s) should be sent to the releasing

shipper in the Offer Upload Final Disposition.

 

In the case of multiple bids upon one offer, the Transportation

Service Provider (TSP) should have the choice of either sending an

Offer Upload Final Disposition to the winning bidder(s) identifying

all winning bidders, or sending an Offer Upload Final Disposition to

each winning bidder identifying only that party as a winning bidder.

 

In the case of a non-winning pre-arranged bidder, the TSP should have

the choice of either sending an Offer Upload Final Disposition to the

non-winning prearranged bidder identifying all winning bidders and

identifying the pre-arranged bidder as a non-winning bidder, or

sending an Offer Upload Final Disposition to the non-winning pre-

arranged bidder identifying only the pre-arranged bidder as a non-

winning bidder.
