----------- ------- ------ ---------- --------

highest Bid Value; Bid (b) receives 0 because of its Minimum Bid

Volumes; Bid (c) receives 5,000 because the bid was submitted after

Bid (d); Bid (d) receives 35,000.



(f) In no event shall this Section 14.10 result in

winning Qualified Bids with a total volume in excess of the

capacity specified in the Capacity Release Request.


(g) The bid evaluation procedure set forth in this

Section 14.10 shall only consider Qualified Bids to the extent

they provide for an objectively quantifiable payment by the

Qualified Bidder. A Qualified Bid based on a percentage of KMIP's

reservation charge shall be evaluated by KMIP based solely on the

maximum reservation charge being charged by KMIP for such service

as of the end of the open season.


(h) If the Releasing Shipper selected a bid evaluation

procedure which is different from the procedure set forth in this

Section 14.10, which procedure must comply with Section 14.5, KMIP

shall determine the winning Qualified Bid(s) pursuant to the

Releasing Shipper's bid evaluation procedure in its Capacity

Release Request and computer diskette or other mutually agreeable

method of electronic communication (if any) submitted by the

Releasing Shipper pursuant to Section 14.5(a).
