accordance with the timeline set forth in Section 22.4.

The posting will include the MDQ or MSQ available for

assignment, the Points of Receipt and Delivery and the

released quantity for each point, the term of the

assignment, whether the assignment is firm or recallable

and the recall conditions, as well as the methods and

rights associated with returning the previously recalled

capacity to the Replacement Shipper, if applicable, the

minimum rate the Releasing Shipper will accept, and any

special conditions applicable to the assignment.

The Releasing Shipper may express the minimum acceptable

rate in dollars and cents or percents of maximum tariff

rate. The Releasing Shipper should also state whether it

requires a volumetric MMBtu or Dth committment.
