GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (continued)

 

14.2 Unless otherwise requested by the Releasing Shipper and consistent

with the time line set forth in Section 14.1(b), Transporter will

post the terms and conditions of release on the LINK® System upon

receipt. Transporter will conduct an open season according to the

time line set forth in Section 14.1(b) above. Any person that

desires to acquire capacity from a Releasing Shipper must submit a

bid to Transporter via EDI or Transporter's LINK® System by the

time set forth in Section 14.1(b) above. Transporter will post

all bids received during the open season in a manner which will

not reveal the identity of the bidder. A bid for capacity may be

made on a volumetric basis up to the Maximum Daily Volumetric

Capacity Release Rates, with or without a minimum volumetric

commitment, or on a demand basis up to the maximum applicable

demand rate; provided that the maximum rate ceiling shall not

apply to a capacity release with a term of one year or less. The

commodity portion of the rate will be stated in Transporter's

applicable Rate Schedule. A bidder may withdraw a bid during the

open season and submit a subsequent bid or the same capacity so

long as the rate on the subsequent bid is no lower than the rate

on the original bid. Bids cannot be withdrawn after the open

season ends. A Releasing Shipper may withdraw an offer to release

capacity during the open season where unanticipated circumstances

justify and no bid has been received by Transporter that meets or

exceeds the minimum conditions included by the Releasing Shipper

in the notice of release. A Releasing Shipper shall not be able

to specify an extension of the original bid period or prearranged

deal match period, without posting a new release. A prearranged

capacity release to an asset manager, as defined by FERC

regulations at 18 C.F.R. § 284.8(h)(3), or to a marketer

participating in a state-regulated retail access program, as

defined by FERC regulations at 18 C.F.R. § 284.8(h)(4), shall be

exempt from the foregoing bidding requirements (payments or other

consideration made by a Releasing Shipper to an asset manager

shall not be subject to the maximum rate ceiling).
