4.14 Right-of-First-Refusal (Continued)


(d) Transporter shall not be obligated to accept any offer for

such capacity at less than the maximum applicable tariff

rate. For purposes of (1) determining best bids, (2)

awarding capacity and (3) applying matching procedures,

Transporter will utilize the evaluation criteria of Section

9.9(b), and will include any contractual usage revenue

commitments in the application of such criteria. In the

event Transporter accepts an offer, however, Transporter

shall inform the existing Shipper of the terms of such

offer. The existing Shipper shall have 5 Business Days in

which to inform Transporter that it agrees to match such

offer as to the entire quantity or any partial quantity.

Such agreement shall be irrevocable. The existing Shipper

or the offering Shipper, as appropriate, shall execute a TSA

containing the terms offered or matched. If the existing

Shipper matches and retains only a partial quantity of one

or more of the acceptable offer(s), the remainder of the

capacity shall be allocated to the winning offering

Shipper(s). If Transporter accepts an offer which is a

negotiated rate, the highest rate that the existing Shipper

must match if it desires to retain all or a portion of its

existing capacity is the maximum applicable tariff rate.
