GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR SERVICES - continued
(b) The volume in a Qualified Bid may not be less than
the minimum volume required for an Eligible Firm Transportation
Agreement under Transporter'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 23.4 (involving a Prearranged
Release) except for the level of the reservation charge and the MDQ,
unless the Capacity Release Request specifically allows otherwise.
(c) (i) Except as provided in (ii), a Qualified Bidder
may not bid rates which would exceed Transporter's maximum
reservation charge applicable to the Eligible Transportation
Agreement capacity. If the Original Shipper is paying a negotiated
rate, a Qualified Bidder may not bid a rate which exceeds the
applicable Recourse Rate, except as provided in (ii). The maximum
Qualified Bid reservation charge includes all demand surcharges,
including all direct-billed charges which are or may become
applicable to the Eligible Transportation Agreement capacity.
(ii) Notwithstanding the provisions of (i), the
rates which are bid and charged for a Released Firm Transportation
Agreement may exceed the otherwise applicable maximu rates through
September 30, 2002, to the extent such 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 Transporter's Tariff for the capacity
bid, as well as all other applicable add-on charges and surcharges
under Transporter's Tariff, such as, but not limited to, ACA, Fuel
Gas and Unaccounted For Gas.
(e) A Qualified Bid received by Transporter during an
open season shall be posted by Transporter 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withdrawn by the Qualified Bidder prior to the close of the open
season, but may not be withdrawn thereafter.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 Transporter's Tariff. Any Qualified Bid inconsistent
with Transporter's Tariff or the applicable Capacity Release Request
shall be null and void.
