purchase capacity solicited pursuant to section 29.1 herein that Transporter intends to

accept. Shipper shall have 25 days after receiving notice to notify Transporter as to

whether it will match the Highest Bid in terms of price, quantity and duration. If the

Shipper elects to match the Highest Bid, it must execute a new Transportation

Agreement that contains the terms of the Highest Bid; provided, however, that

Shipper shall not be required to pay any rate higher than the maximum applicable

recourse rate. If the Shipper fails to match the offer presented by Transporter,

Transporter shall enter into a Firm Transportation Agreement with the Person

submitting the competing offer.


29.4 Transporter shall post any matched offer below the maximum applicable recourse rate

on its Web Site for an additional 25 days, during which time bids may be submitted at

a higher price. Shipper will be given an opportunity to match any higher bid. This

process will repeat until Shipper agrees to pay Transporter’s maximum applicable

recourse rate, the Shipper fails to match an offer, or no higher bid is submitted. The

iterative process shall not extend for greater than 120 days from the initial posting of

a matched offer pursuant to this section 29.4. At the expiration of such 120 day

period, the most recent offer shall be accepted.


29.5 If Transporter receives no bids at the maximum applicable recourse rate and

Transporter refuses to accept a lower bid, Transporter may abandon service to

Shipper, unless Shipper agrees to pay the maximum applicable recourse rate for a

period of one year, or if Transporter and Shipper negotiate the terms and conditions

of a Firm Transportation Agreement extension.




These General Terms and Conditions are incorporated in and are a part of Transporter’s Rate

Schedules and service agreements. To the extent there is any inconsistency between terms in

these General Terms and Conditions and terms in Transporter’s Rate Schedule or service

agreements, these General Terms and Conditions shall govern.
