conform completely to the reservation charge(s) and

reservation surcharge(s) and all the terms and conditions

specified in the Releasing Shipper's notice, then the

Acquiring Shipper(s) shall be the Bidding Shipper(s) who

offer(s) the highest bid. Provided, however, if such bid was

submitted as a bid in an open season relating to a pre-

arranged release and the Pre-Arranged Shipper matches such

result in bids of equal rank then the capacity shall be

awarded in accordance with Section 9.9(f) hereof.

contingency by the date specified by the Releasing Shipper

pursuant to Section 9.3(p) hereof, such bid shall be deemed

to have been withdrawn.

Shipper does not specify otherwise, all bids will be
