and fuel it receives from the ACQUIRING SHIPPER. If any of the rates billed to

and paid by the ACQUIRING SHIPPER under its Service Agreement exceed the rate

which the Commission determines to be just and reasonable and COMPANY is

ordered to make refunds, the ACQUIRING SHIPPER shall be eligible to receive

refunds to the extent of any payments it made in excess of the rates the

Commission subsequently determined to be just and reasonable. For releases that

become effective on or after July 30, 2008, the rate paid by the ACQUIRING

SHIPPER in any capacity release transaction with a term of one (1) year or less

which is not subject to the maximum rate cap will be deemed to be a final rate

and is not subject to refund.


22.6 Offer and Bid Procedures:


(a) Offer/Bid Schedule: The minimum days and times by which both

offers and bids for releases of capacity must be electronically

Sections 22.6(h) and (i) hereof, are deemed to be non-standard

offers and shall require additional evaluation time. It shall be

the responsibility of the RELEASING SHIPPER to post its

Offer in sufficient time to allow the release to occur on the date

extending the bid period for such Offer. If it posts its Offer early, the

RELEASING SHIPPER may alter the bid deadline and the deadline for
