GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

5. PROCEDURES FOR REQUESTING SERVICE (Continued)

 

(11) Disclosure of Open Season Bids: MRT shall disclose the

aggregation of bids received in an Open Season for an expansion to

existing shippers and to provide such shippers an opportunity to

turnback their capacity after the initial Open Season if such capacity

can be used to meet the demands of the Open Season Customers and

offset the need for certain expansion facilities.

 

(12) Main Line No. 1 Customers: MRT will leave the Main

Line No. 1 Customers that were allocated Main Line No. 1 capacity for

a limited, three-year term as part of the Settlement Agreement in

Docket No RP96-199 and the Order issued in Docket No. CP97-693 in the

queue for purposes of allocating firm capacity that becomes available

on the Main Line as a result of terminating agreements or turnback of

capacity. Such Customers shall remain in the queue for the amount of

capacity currently subscribed by such Customer on Main Line No. 1;

which capacity subscription will expire on April 30, 2001 pursuant to

the terms of the Settlement. Provided, however, allocation of

capacity to such Customers based on its position in the queue is

contingent on such Customer's agreement to pay MRT's authorized

maximum tariff rates for a minimum five-year term. Such Customers

will be removed from the queue on April 30, 2001 or at the time

capacity on the Main Line is allocated to each Customer prior to the

abandonment of the incremental Main Line No. 1 capacity or such

Customer is offered such capacity at maximum rates for a five-year

term and rejects it, whichever comes first.

 

For firm capacity that becomes available due to expansion of MRT's

Main Line system and MRT is authorized rolled-in rate treatment,

allocation of capacity to a Main Line No. 1 Customer based on its

position in the queue is contingent upon such Customer's agreement

to pay MRT's maximum tariff rates for a term that will allow MRT to

recover its cost of service.
