GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

(e) (i) All terms and conditions of all releases must be consistent

with the terms and conditions of the Releasing Shipper's

transportation service agreement and with this Tariff,

including the provisions on nominations and scheduling of

transportation and curtailment of service.

 

(ii) Bids are binding until written or electronic notice of

withdrawal is received by Transporter. Offers are binding

until written or electronic notice of withdrawal is received

by Transporter. Bids cannot be withdrawn after the bid period

ends. The releasing party has the right to withdraw its offer

during the bid period, where unanticipated circumstances

justify and no minimum bid has been made.

 

(iii) Transporter will post offers and bids, including prearranged

deals, upon receipt. A Releasing Shipper may request a later

posting time for posting of such offer, and Transporter will

support such request insofar as it comports with the standard

timeline set forth in Section 11.2(d) of the General Terms and

Conditions of this Tariff.

 

For a release involving a Prearranged Replacement Shipper

pursuant to (a) an Asset Management Arrangement ("AMA") (as

defined in 18 C.F.R. Section 284.8(h)(3)), or (b) a state-

regulated retail access program (as defined in 18 C.F.R.

Section 284.8(h)(4)), or (c) an agreement to release at the

maximum rate for a term longer than one year, or (d) a

release for any period of 31 days or less, the Prearranged

Replacement Shipper shall be awarded the released capacity

without the necessity of waiting for competing bids to be

submitted. However, a Releasing Shipper may not re-release

capacity covered by this section 11.5(e) to the same

Prearranged Replacement Shipper, without subjecting the

release to bidding, until twenty-eight (28) days after the

first release period has ended.

 

Transporter shall be notified of the release and the terms of

the release by the Releasing Shipper. Transporter shall post

a notice of the occurrence of the release on its EBB and/or

Designated Site. If Releasing Shipper has secured a

Prearranged Replacement Shipper pursuant to the implementation

of an AMA transaction, the release request must also contain

AMA Special Terms and Conditions which: 1) state that the

release is being made to implement an AMA; and 2) specifies

the quantity and term commitment of the Replacement Shipper's

delivery or purchase obligation to the Releasing Shipper in

sufficient detail to confirm compliance with

18 CFR 284.8(h)(3);

 

(iv) A Releasing Shipper may not specify an extension of the

original bid period or the pre-arranged deal match period,

without posting a new release.
