of a final order requiring unbundling, and the

anticipated effective date of the unbundling

order. At the time of such notice, Shipper must

certify with supporting data that:


(i) The contract quantity reduction requested

is equal to the level of stranded capacity

on Panhandle resulting from (1) Shipper

unbundling its distribution/transportation

functions from its merchant functions and

(2) a net decrease in Shipper's system

sales requirements.


(ii) Shipper has used reasonable efforts to

seek state body approval of a mechanism

that allows Shipper to recover the costs

incurred under Shipper's Service

Agreements and that such recovery efforts

were unsuccessful prior to requesting its

contract quantity reduction.


(iii) Shipper has used reasonable efforts to

release its capacity to Replacement

Shippers, by posting the capacity on the

Messenger system for thirty (30) days at

the rate provided for under the relevant

Service Agreement(s). Additionally,

Shipper has used reasonable efforts to

release its capacity to the new merchants

of retail service in its service territory

and to request that its state body require

new merchants to accept release of such

capacity for the remaining term of the

Service Agreement.
