RATE SCHEDULE FTS-1
Firm Transportation Service
I. Transporter will present Shipper with the acceptable bid(s) ranked in order of highest present
value. In the event the Shipper chooses to match the price and term of one or more of the acceptable
bid(s) as to the entire quantity or any partial quantity, then Transporter and Shipper shall execute
a new Service Agreement containing such terms. If such Shipper matches and retains only a partial
quantity of one or more of the acceptable bid(s), the remainder of the capacity shall be allocated
to the winning third-party(s) at its(their) bid price(s) unless the winning third-party(s) specified
an unwillingness to accept a partial quantity. In the event the Shipper declines to match one or
more of the acceptable bid(s), then Transporter shall execute the Service Agreement(s) previously
submitted by the third party containing such terms; thereafter, Shipper shall have no further right
to said capacity, and Transporter's obligation to perform the transportation service for Shipper
shall be extinguished and abandoned.
J. In the event that no third-party(s) submit(s) an acceptable bid(s) for the available capacity or if
third-party(s) submit acceptable bids for only a partial quantity, then with respect to such
available capacity for which there are no acceptable bids, the firm Shipper, if it agrees to pay the
maximum rate, may continue the transportation service for any term it chooses for the entire
quantity or any partial quantity, or may receive continued service at a mutually agreeable rate.
K. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 13, unless Transporter has presented to the firm
Shipper in writing acceptable bid(s) for matching, Transporter shall not be required to accept a
bid, nor to execute a service agreement, containing a rate less than the maximum rate. Transporter
shall indicate whether it is willing to accept bids at less than the maximum rate in the notice
posting the available capacity.
