20. CAPACITY RELEASE (Continued)


holding a lottery using a computerized random number generator

unless the releasing Shipper specifies another non-discriminatory

method for determining the winning bid.


A Releasing Shipper may specify and request Transporter to post

to the EBB and/or Designated Site an objectively stated,

nondiscriminatory standard for Transporter to use in determining

the best bid(s), including the criteria to be used by Transporter

in evaluating volumetric bid(s) and, subject to Section 20.2(j),

repackaged bids. If Releasing Shipper provides insufficient

criteria for Transporter to use in evaluating volumetric rate

bid(s), Transporter will evaluate volumetric bids based on the

rate which is bid, or, in the case of services for which multiple

bids are required, the sum of such bids.


(i) At Releasing Shipper's request using reasonable, objective

criteria for repackaging, Transporter may repackage bids for the

same release to maximize the economic value of the released

capacity, i.e., discrete bids for portions or segments of the

released capacity may be repackaged for evaluation; provided,

however that Transporter shall be under no obligation to

repackage bids if Transporter determines that such repackaging is

not administratively or operationally feasible.


(j) A Replacement Shipper or Prearranged Replacement Shipper

must comply with Section 11.2 of the General Terms and Conditions

of this tariff. Such Shipper must submit a request for

pre-qualification for credit as a Shipper to Transporter in order

to expedite implementation of capacity release service. For

releases of less than one year, a Replacement Shipper or

Prearranged Replacement Shipper may not submit a bid where the

economic value exceeds that Shipper's established credit limit.

For releases of one year or more, if a Replacement Shipper or

Prearranged Replacement Shipper submits a bid where the economic

value exceeds that Shipper's established credit limit, that

Shipper must provide sufficient documentation to assure

Transporter of that Shipper's ability to pay for the service in

excess of the established credit limit within one (1) day after

notification that Shipper's bid will be acceptable contingent

upon Shipper's demonstration of its ability to pay to

Transporter's satisfaction.
