GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

6. PRIORITY OF SERVICE

 

6.1 ALLOCATION OF CAPACITY

 

(a) GENERAL

 

This Section 6.1 governs the allocation of firm

capacity on Trailblazer's System among entities requesting firm

services. In assigning priority to otherwise valid requests for

any particular firm service, Trailblazer shall afford priority

based on rate, term, and volume, applying consistent and objective

economic criteria. Such criteria shall be consistent with Section

6.1(c) of these General Terms and Conditions. In applying such

criteria where a Negotiated Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula is

involved, the value assigned to a request which includes a

Negotiated Rate or Negotiated Rate Formula shall be limited by the

Recourse Rate as provided in Section 38 of these General Terms and

Conditions. Trailblazer shall not be required to grant otherwise

valid requests at less than the applicable maximum rate, but may

do so on a non-discriminatory basis.

 

(b) CAPACITY AWARD PROCEDURES

 

This Section 6.1(b), together with Sections 6.1(c) and

21 of these General Terms and Conditions, sets out the procedures

to be followed by Trailblazer in awarding all firm forward haul

transmission segment capacity becoming available on its system;

provided, however, that these procedures do not apply to the

initial allocation of such firm capacity created by the

construction of new facilities (including both extensions and

expansions of Trailblazer's system).

 

(1) INITIAL OPEN SEASON

 

Trailblazer shall conduct an Initial Open Season

for all firm forward-haul transmission segment capacity becoming

available on its system; provided, however, that the Initial Open

Season procedure shall not apply (and the capacity shall not be

considered as available or becoming available) where an existing

Shipper has the right of first refusal or other rollover right

under Section 21 of these General Terms and Conditions unless and

until all such rollover rights have expired or, if the right of

first refusal is exercised, the right of first refusal process has

concluded and the capacity has not been awarded.
