26. CAPACITY RELEASE (Continued)


26.4 Release Procedures.


(a) Notice by Releasing Shipper. A Releasing Shipper wanting to

release capacity shall notify Transporter electronically

(hereinafter called "Releasing Shipper's Notice"). Releasing

Shipper's Notice may include reasonable terms and conditions that

are objectively stated, applicable to all potential bidders, and

non-discriminatory, and shall include the following:


(1) Releasing Shipper's legal name, Transportation Service Agreement

Number, rate schedule, and the name, title, address, telephone

number, and fax number of the individual responsible for

authorizing the release of capacity.


(2) In accordance with NAESB Standard 5.3.26, Version 1.8, Releasing

Shipper has the 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.



(3) Whether the release is firm or recallable, including the

specifics of any recall right. These provisions must be

objectively stated, nondiscriminatory, applicable to all bidders,

operationally and administratively feasible as determined by

Transporter and in accordance with Transporter's tariff.


(4) The maximum and minimum quantities of firm daily capacity in

Dth/d that Releasing Shipper elects to release (this must not

exceed Releasing Shipper's maximum contract demand available for

capacity release).
