GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(continued)

 

9. CAPACITY RELEASE (continued)

 

(b) If capacity is released during any Service Year, the

Releasing Customer releasing such capacity shall have its

MATQ reduced for such Service Year by the quantity received

during such Service Year prior to the release and associated

with the MDTQ so released. If a capacity release terminates

during any Service Year, the Releasing Customer shall have

its MATQ increased for such Service Year by the quantity

received during such Service Year during the period of the

release under the acquiring Customer's agreement.

 

(c) Capacity resold under this Section 9, including capacity

resold under the bidding exception of Section 9.4, shall be

subject to the maximum rates, including any applicable

surcharges, set forth in Pipeline's Statement of Rates for

the applicable Rate Schedule; provided, however, for releases

that become effective on or after July 30, 2008, any proposed

capacity release transaction with a duration greater than

thirty-one (31) days and less than or equal to one (1) year,

unless such proposed release is to an asset manager or a

marketer participating in a state-regulated retail access

program, must be posted for bidding regardless of the

proposed rate if the effective date of the proposed release

is on or before one (1) year from the date on which Pipeline

is notified of the release; and provided further that, for

releases that become effective on or after July 30, 2008, the

rate for any release transaction with a term of one (1) year

or less may exceed the maximum tariff rate for the applicable

rate schedule, if the effective date of the proposed release

is on or before one (1) year from the date on which Pipeline

is notified of the release, subject to the restrictions in

Section 9.11 herein. If Releasing Customer specifies that

the capacity may be released on a volumetric-rate basis, the

volumetric rate for the release shall apply only to the

reservation portion of the rate and shall be subject to the

maximum volumetric rates set forth in Pipeline's Statement of

Rates for the applicable Rate Schedule. Capacity released

subject to recall is firm service subject to the same maximum

rates as capacity released not subject to recall.

 

(d) Capacity released hereunder shall be acquired by the

Replacement Customer under the same Rate Schedule as that

applying to the existing Service Agreement.
