A Customer (including a Replacement Customer), who releases its right

the original Customer's FSS-1 Agreement, remains responsible for
compliance with all terms and conditions of such Agreement, which shall
remain in effect, and for payment to Petal of the amount of any firm
Storage Capacity and Deliverability Charge not paid by the Replacement
Customer. A Customer (including a Replacement Customer) who releases
its right to capacity for the full remaining term of such original
Customer's FSS-1 Agreement, shall be released from its obligations
under such Agreement subject to the following conditions: First, upon
obtaining the consent of Petal, which consent shall not be unreasonably
withheld, and second, upon receiving the approval of Petal's

To release its capacity rights, a Customer must notify Petal in writing

Non-index based release - percentage of maximum rate, or 3) Index-

for the capacity release offer should adhere to the method
specified by the Releasing Customer. The bidder may bid the
maximum reservation rate, in Petal's tariff or general terms and
conditions, as an alternative to the method specified by the
Releasing Customer, except when the release is index-based for a
term of one year or less or utilizes market-based rates.

and on a firm or recallable basis. If on a recallable basis,

Customer may select: 1) the present-value formula specified in
Section 4.2 of the General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff, 2)
net revenue, 3) highest rate, or 4) state its own nondiscriminatory
criteria, subject to Petal's approval.
