A Customer (including a Replacement Customer), who releases its right
to capacity on any basis for a period less than the remaining term of
the original Customer's FSS Agreement, remains responsible for
compliance with all terms and conditions of such Agreement, which shall
remain in effect, and for payment to Petal of the amount of any Storage
Capacity and Deliverability Charge not paid by the Replacement
Customer. A Customer (including a Replacement Customer) who releases
its right to capacity for the full remaining term of such original
Customer's FSS Agreement, shall be released from its obligations under
such Agreement subject to the following conditions: First, upon
obtaining the consent of Petal, which consent shall not be unreasonably
withheld, and second, upon receiving the approval of Petal's
4.3 Notification to Petal.
To release its capacity rights, a Customer must notify Petal in writing

bids and all transportation service providers should support this.
Once the choice is made by the Releasing Customer, the bids shall
comport with the choice.

and on a firm or recallable basis. If on a recallable basis,
include the conditions, if any, upon which the Releasing Customer
may recall the capacity.

Customer may select: 1) the present-value formula specified in
Section 4.2 of the General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff, 2)
net revenue, 3) highest rate, or 4) state its own nondiscriminatory
criteria, subject to Petal's approval.
