In evaluating bids associated with the open season, any

request for a change in primary Receipt Point or Delivery Point

under Section 7.2 or 7.4, respectively, of the General Terms and

Conditions will be considered to have an NPV of zero (0) when

comparing requests for service and awarding capacity, unless:


a) Shipper has agreed in conjunction with its request to

increase its MDQ or;


b) Shipper has agreed to extend the term of its firm



in which case Transporter will consider the term of such MDQ

increase or contract extension when evaluating the NPV.
