7. QUALIFICATION TO PARTICIPATE AS A BIDDING SHIPPER:

 

Any party wishing to become a Bidding Shipper and participate in

Western's Released Capacity Service under this Rate Schedule

must submit a valid Released Capacity Service Request Form and

satisfy the creditworthiness requirements of Western's FERC Gas

Tariff applicable to transportation service. Such a party may

not bid on released capacity without first satisfying the

creditworthiness requirements and receiving notice from Western

of its approval as a Bidding Shipper and its level of

creditworthiness. A Bidding Shipper may not bid for quantities

of released capacity in excess of its approved creditworthiness.

Continued violation by a Bidding Shipper of the terms of this

Section 7 or any other terms and conditions of this Rate

Schedule after written notice from Western will result in

suspension of such Shipper's qualification as a Bidding Shipper

for a period of one (1) year.
