GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
5. PROCEDURES FOR REQUESTING SERVICE (Continued)
(3) Capacity Created as a Result of Constructing
Additional Facilities: Capacity available for
subscription as a result of construction of additional
facilities will be posted in accordance with FERC
requirements and/or made available as part of an Open Season.
(b) Posting: Within five days of the date when MRT has
determined that firm capacity is becoming available, MRT shall post
notice and any updates to such notice on its Electronic Bulletin Board
and its designated internet site of available firm capacity in
accordance with FERC regulations, and such notice shall be posted
between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Central Clock Time on regular
business days. If firm capacity becomes available for subscription,
such postings shall specify the type of service that is available,
the dates and duration that the service will be available, the
location of the available capacity and/or deliverability, any minimum
terms and conditions that would be acceptable for consideration, any
minimum volumes and/or rates that will be considered, whether capacity
turnback will be accepted for consideration and as an alternative to
construction of incremental facilities, and any other information that
MRT determines to be relevant.
In the event MRT posts notice in an Open Season of minimum bid
criteria which would be acceptable to MRT's allocation of capacity,
unless such Open Season posting is for an expansion of MRT's
facilities, MRT shall not be permitted to change or withdraw the
criteria applicable to such minimum bid during the Open Season,
unless no bids meeting such minimum criteria have been submitted.
Such minimum terms and conditions that MRT may prescribe will include:
Volume; term; rate; segment path, if applicable to a
particular posting of capacity; whether seasonal or only
annual capacity subscriptions will be accepted; whether
seasonal or other operational limitations exist relative to
the capacity posted; whether the capacity is only available
as a backhaul; and any applicable operational conditions or
limitations affecting the posted capacity.
