c. The Bid for Released Capacity does not

meet the minimum criteria established in

the Releasing Shipper's Offer.


As specified in the Releasing Shipper's Offer, the

best bid will be determined using one of the following

methods: highest rate, net revenue, or present value. If

the Releasing Shipper elects to accept volumetric bids or

volumetric bids with a minimum volumetric commitment, the

Releasing Shipper must have also specified the method to

rank competing volumetric and reservation charge bids.

Prearranged Bidder to match the bid in accordance with

If there is a tie for the best bid, and there is no

Prearranged Replacement Shipper who has agreed to match the

best bid, the bid will be determined by means of a lottery,

with all capacity being allocated to the winner(s), unless

the Offer to Release Capacity specifies a different tie

and the price, reservation quantity and term of the best
