28.1 Purpose. This section sets forth the specific terms and conditions

applicable to Transporter's capacity release program.


28.2 Applicability. This section is applicable to any Releasing

Shipper(s) or any Replacement Shipper(s) who elect to release all or

a portion of its firm capacity under Rate Schedule FT. Releasing

Shipper(s) shall have the right to release, on a permanent or

temporary basis, any portion of its firm capacity rights held under

a TSA with Transporter, but only to the extent that the capacity so

released is acquired by another Shipper pursuant to this section.


28.3 Availability of Released Capacity. Released capacity shall be made

available on a non-discriminatory basis and shall be assigned on the

Shipper must satisfy the creditworthiness requirements of this

Tariff. Notwithstanding such qualification to participate in the

capacity release program, Transporter does not guarantee the payment
