GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)
17. FIRM CAPACITY RELEASE MECHANISM (Continued)
17.3.3 All offers of or bids on capacity release shall be
submitted to Transporter by Releasing Shipper or potential
Replacement Shipper, via an acceptable electronic communication
mechanism, as described in Section 8 of these General Terms and
188.8.131.52 Transporter will accept offers of or bids on
capacity release received via an alternate method, i.e.
facsimile, mail or hand-delivery, in an emergency situation,
such as the failure of Transporter's acceptable electronic
communication mechanism utilized by Shipper or, at the
discretion of Transporter, in other instances when Shipper
is unable to communicate such offer or bid via an acceptable
electronic communication mechanism. Replacement Shipper(s)
not submitting such bid electronically must submit its bid
on the Capacity Release Bid Request Form provided on
Transporter's Website under Other Information. Shipper
shall contact Transporter by telephone, prior to sending
offers of or bids on capacity release via such alternate
method, to receive a verbal confirmation of the waiver of
the electronic communication requirement and to advise
Transporter that an offer or bid via an alternate method is
forthcoming. During non-business hours, Shipper shall
contact Transporter's Nomination Center.
17.3.4 Bids and offers should be complete before being posted.
Only posted offers and bids should be available electronically.
If offers and/or bids are not submitted via an acceptable
electronic communication mechanism, as required pursuant to
Subsection 17.3.3, Transporter shall not be obligated to adhere
to the offer, match, award and/or posting provisions of
Subsection 17.3.1 and 17.3.2.
17.3.5 Capacity release facilitator should post offers and
bids, including prearranged deals, upon receipt. A Releasing
Shipper may request a later posting time for posting of such
offer, and the capacity release service facilitator should
support such request insofar as it comports with the standard
Capacity Release timeline specified in NAESB Standard 5.3.2.
