Capacity Release


is Pipeline's currently-effective maximum rate for

service applicable to Releasing Customer, plus all

applicable surcharges and transition costs, excluding

any marketing fees. This maximum rate applies

notwithstanding any discounts granted under the Service

Agreement between Releasing Customer and Pipeline. The

posted notice must specify whether the Releasing

Customer will consider bids on a volumetric basis; if

so, the maximum applicable reservation rate shall be the

100% load factor derivative of applicable reservation

charges, as set forth on Sheet Nos. 32, 33, and 37 of

Pipeline's Tariff. The usage portion of the rate will

not be taken into consideration when determining the

"best bid." Unless Pipeline and Replacement Customer

subsequently negotiate different usage rate components

as permitted by the applicable Rate Schedule,

Replacement Customer shall pay the usage rates otherwise

applicable to Releasing Customer. Where Releasing

Customer is subject to a Negotiated Rate, the Recourse

Rate shall be used for purposes of bidding under this

Section 23.

which the Pipeline is notified of the release.

term, including the specific starting dates and times

Permanent releases are subject to pregranted abandonment,

as provided under 18 C.F.R. Section 284.221.

among equivalent bids. If no criteria are specified,

Pipelines default standards shall apply, as described

in Section 23.3., below.

or subject to full day or partial-day recall on an

objective, not unduly discriminatory basis (by

reput rights.
