7.1 General. This section defines the terms and conditions of the

capacity release program on Southern Trails' system and applies to any Shipper

that has contracted for firm transportation service under this tariff and

elects to release all or a portion of its firm capacity.


7.2 Conditions of Release. A Shipper shall have the right to release

any portion of its firm capacity but only to the extent that the released

capacity is acquired by another Shipper through provisions of this section.


7.3 Criteria of Release. A releasing Shipper may specify how bids for

released capacity are to be evaluated to determine the best offer. A Shipper

must notify Southern Trails of the criteria by which volumetric bids are to be

evaluated. These criteria must be objectively stated, applicable to all

potential bidders and nondiscriminatory. Unless the offer to release is

withdrawn according to § 7.22, the releasing Shipper shall not be entitled to

reject a bid that meets its specified criteria.
