28. CAPACITY RELEASE (Continued)


28.3 Notice Requirements


Any Releasing Shipper electing to release capacity shall submit a

notice via GTN's EBB that it elects to release firm capacity. The

notice shall set forth the following information:


(a) Releasing Shipper's legal name, contract number, and the name,

title, address, telephone number, and fax number of the

individual responsible for authorizing the release of capacity.


(b) Rate schedule of the Releasing Shipper.


(c) In accordance with NAESB Standard 5.3.26, Version 1.8,

Releasing Shipper has choice to specify dollars and 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 purposes of bidding and awarding,

maximum/minimum rates specified by the Releasing Shipper should

include the tariff reservation rate and all demand surcharges,

as a total 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.


(d) Daily quantity of capacity to be released, expressed in Dth/d,

at the designated delivery point(s). (This must not exceed

Releasing Shipper's maximum contract demand available for

capacity release and shall state the minimum quantity expressed

in Dth/d acceptable for release.)
