Any Releasing Shipper electing to release capacity shall submit a

notice via NBP's Internet website that it elects to release firm

capacity. The notice shall set forth the following information:

cents or percents of maximum tariff rate in the denomination

of bids and all transportation service providers should

support this. Once the choice is made by the Releasing

Shipper, the bids should comport with the choice. In

accordance with NAESB Standard 5.3.27, Version 1.8, for

number or as stated separately. If a volumetric rate is

used, Releasing Shipper must indicate whether bids on a

reservation charge basis will be accepted as well and if so

must specify the method of evaluating the two types of bids.

Releasing Shipper also should indicate whether bids will be

accepted on a dollar basis or as a percentage of the

Releasing Shipper's as-billed rate.

exceed Releasing Shipper's maximum contract demand available

for capacity release and shall state the minimum quantity

expressed in Dth/d acceptable for release.)

begin and terminate. The minimum release term acceptable to

NBP shall be one (1) day.
