released capacity are to be evaluated to determine the best offer. A Shipper

must notify Overthrust of the criteria by which volumetric bids are to be

evaluated. These criteria must be objectively stated, applicable to all

potential bidders and nondiscriminatory. Unless the offer to release is

withdrawn according to § 8.22, the releasing Shipper shall not be entitled to

reject a bid that meets its specified criteria.
