GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

21. RELEASES OR ASSIGNMENTS OF FIRM TRANSPORTATION AGREEMENTS (Continued)

 

21.9 Submission of Information

 

Shippers shall submit all necessary information, releases, Replacement Requests

and bids to Company via Company's System.

 

21.10 Marketing of Released Capacity

 

Company shall have no obligation to market any capacity available to be

released by a Releasing Shipper. Company, however, may agree to market

capacity for a Releasing Shipper and may negotiate a fee with the Releasing

Shipper for such service.

 

21.11 Further Conditions on Release of Transportation Rights

 

(a) Persons participating in this release program agree to be bound by and

shall comply with the terms and conditions of this Tariff, and all

applicable FERC rules, orders and regulations.

 

(b) All terms and conditions in all releases must be objectively stated,

applicable to all Bidders and non-discriminatory.

 

(c) The minimum term for any release shall be one day and the maximum term

shall be the remaining term of the Releasing Shipper's Released

Transportation Agreement.

 

(d) For volumetric releases with a term of more than one year, or for

volumetric releases with a term of one year or less that will take effect

more than one year from the date Releasing Shipper notifies the Company of

the release, the Maximum Rate shall not exceed the daily demand rate for

the released capacity. Such Maximum Rate for volumetric releases only

applies to the reservation portion for the rate; the Replacement Shipper

will also be liable for all applicable usage charges. The Maximum Rates

for all other releases with a term of more than one year, or for releases

with a term of one year or less that will take effect more than one year

from the date Releasing Shipper notifies the Company of the release shall

be the applicable maximum reservation rate and commodity rate, as well as

all other applicable rates, charges and surcharges set forth in this

Tariff, notwithstanding any discount to such rates, charges or surcharges

then in effect for the Releasing Shipper. To the extent the Commission

has a policy providing a Maximum Rate ceiling for capacity releases, for a

Shipper that is a Consenting Party under the terms and conditions of the

Docket No. RP02-132-000 Stipulation and Agreement, the Maximum Rate

ceiling for capacity releases, regardless of the term of the underlying

contract, shall be the Category 1 rate applicable to the Rate Schedule of

the underlying contract.

 

(e) All terms and conditions of all releases must be consistent with the terms

and conditions of the Releasing Shipper's Agreement and with this Tariff,

including the provisions on nominations and scheduling of service and

curtailment of service.
