GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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

 

(b) The volume in a Qualified Bid may not be less than

the minimum volume required for an Eligible Firm Transportation

Agreement under Trailblazer's Tariff. Neither the volume nor the

release term specified in a Qualified Bid may exceed the maximum

volume or term specified in a Capacity Release Request, unless the

Capacity Release Request specifically allows otherwise. A Qualified

Bidder must accept all the terms and conditions of a Capacity Release

Request submitted under Section 19.4 (involving a Prearranged

Release) except for the level of the reservation charge and the MDQ,

unless the Capacity Release Request specifically allows otherwise.

 

(c) A Qualified Bidder may not bid rates which would

exceed Trailblazer's maximum reservation charge applicable to the

Eligible Firm Transportation Agreement capacity; provided, however,

that the bid may exceed the maximum rate to the extent the rate

ceilings have been waived for released capacity contracts of less

than one (1) year pursuant to 18 C.F.R. Section 284.8(i). If the

Original Shipper is paying a Negotiated Rate or a rate under a

Negotiated Rate Formula pursuant to Section 38 of these General Terms

and Conditions, a Qualified Bidder may not bid a rate which exceeds

the applicable Recourse Rate. The maximum Qualified Bid reservation

charge includes all demand surcharges, including all direct-billed

charges which are or may become applicable to the Eligible Firm

Transportation Agreement capacity. Nothwithstanding the foregoing,

Qualified Bids may exceed the maximum reservation charge to the

extent the rate ceilings have been waived for released capacity

contracts of less than one (1) year pursuant to 18 C.F.R. Section

284.8(i).

 

(d) All Qualified Bids shall provide for payment of

maximum commodity charges under Trailblazer's Tariff for the capacity

bid, as well as all other applicable add-on charges and surcharges

under Trailblazer's Tariff, such as, but not limited to, ACA, Fuel

Gas and Unaccounted For Gas.

 

(e) A Qualified Bid received by Trailblazer during an

open season shall be posted by Trailblazer on its DART system,

without the name of the Qualified Bidder. A Qualified Bid may be

withdrawn by the Qualified Bidder prior to the close of the open

season, but may not be withdrawn thereafter. Following such

withdrawal, the Qualified Bidder cannot bid for the same capacity

during the open season at a lower rate.

 

(f) All Qualified Bids must be consistent with all

provisions of Trailblazer's Tariff. Any Qualified Bid inconsistent

with Trailblazer's Tariff or the applicable Capacity Release Request

shall be null and void.
