19.1 General:


This Section 19 sets forth the sole means by which a

Shipper under Rate Schedule FT-1 ("RELEASING

SHIPPER"), pursuant to the Commission's Regulations,

or a Shipper under Rate Schedule FT-2, may release its

firm capacity rights under a Transportation Service

Agreement with the Transporter to a third party

("ACQUIRING SHIPPER"). The provisions of Section 19

pertain solely to release of firm capacity rights

under FT-1 or FT-2 Transportation Service Agreements

ACQUIRING SHIPPER shall be required to execute a

separate TSA for the released capacity at the

unless Transporter agrees otherwise in a

nondiscriminatory manner. Furthermore, the

ACQUIRING SHIPPER must contract for the Primary

Receipt and Delivery Points specifically set

capacity under subsection 19.6(a). The ACQUIRING

SHIPPER then has the right to release its

capacity on a permanent or temporary basis under

the terms and conditions of this Section 19.
