9.3 Notice by Shipper Electing to Release Capacity (Continued)


(q) whether the Releasing Shipper's notice will state minimum

conditions or that such Shipper has revealed such minimums to

Transporter which conditions shall not be revealed during the

open season;

(r) any other applicable conditions; and

(s) if the released capacity was originally obtained under a

negotiated rate agreement, the usage charges and surcharges

applicable to that agreement.


A Releasing Shipper may withdraw such notice at any time prior to

the close of the open season set forth in Section 9.7 below if such

withdrawal is due to an unanticipated need for the capacity and no

bid has been received which meets the minimum criteria specified in

the notice; provided, however, that once the notice is withdrawn,

the offer to release shall remain posted on the EBB for a period of

thirty (30) Days for monitoring and control purposes.


9.4 Notice of Pre-Arranged Release - The Releasing Shipper shall

deliver a notice via Transporter's EBB of a pre-arranged release.

The notice shall set forth all of the information on the terms of

the release called for in Section 9.3 and all of the information

called for in Section 9.8 required to define the pre-arranged bid.

In addition, it shall specify if the pre-arranged bid is for the

maximum applicable reservation rate, and whether the Releasing

Shipper is seeking bids to compete with the non-rate provisions of

the pre-arranged bid. The Releasing Shipper shall also designate

if it is seeking bids when the release of capacity is for thirty-

one (31) Days or less.


9.5 Term of Released Capacity - The term of any release of firm

capacity shall not exceed the term of the TSA or Acquired Capacity

Agreement under which releasing occurs, nor shall it be less than

one (1) full gas flow day.


9.6 Availability of Released Capacity - Released capacity shall be made

available on a nondiscriminatory basis and shall be assigned on the

basis of an open season or pre-arrangement in accordance with the

procedures described in Sections 9.7 and 9.9.
