28.4 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 El Paso which conditions shall not be revealed during

the open season; and


(r) any other applicable conditions.


A Releasing Shipper including any Shipper with a pre-arranged

release that is subject to an open season, may withdraw such

notice regardless of whether a valid bid has been received, at

any time prior to the close of the open season set forth in

Section 28.8 if such withdrawal is due to an unanticipated

need for the capacity; provided, however, that once the notice

is withdrawn, both the offer to release and any bids received

during the open season shall remain posted on the electronic

bulletin board for a period of thirty (30) days for monitoring

and control purposes.


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

deliver a notice via El Paso's electronic bulletin board of a

pre-arranged release. The notice shall set forth all of the

information on the terms of the release called for in Section

28.4 above and all of the information called for in Section

28.9 below required to define the pre-arranged bid. In

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

maximum applicable reservation rate, 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 less than one (1) month.


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

capacity shall not exceed the term of the Transportation

Service Agreement or Acquired Capacity Agreement under which

releasing occurs, nor shall it be less than one (1) full gas

flow day.


28.7 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 28.8 and

28.10 below.
