An open season is not required for: (a) a Prearranged

Release for more than one (1) year at the maximum reservation charge

applicable to the capacity being released, (b) a Short-term Prearranged

Release, (c) a Prearranged Asset Manager Release, as defined in Section

19.2(g)(i) hereof or (d) a Prearranged Release to a Marketer

Participating in a State-Regulated Retail Access Program, as defined in

Section 19.2(g)(ii) hereof. A Capacity Release Request which is not

subject to an open season need only contain the information required in

Sections 19.4(a) and (b). Such Capacity Release Request must be

delivered via Trailblazer's Interactive Website (or in writing for

posting on Trailblazer's Interactive Website if Trailblazer's

Interactive Website is unavailable for receiving Capacity Release

Requests) sufficiently in advance so that the release may become

effective under Section 19.9 before the release transaction is to

commence. A Releasing Shipper may not rollover, extend or in any way

continue a Short-term Prearranged Release exempt from bidding under

subsection (b) hereof with the same Replacement or Subreplacement

Shipper until twenty-eight (28) days after the Short-term Prearranged

Release has ended unless the Releasing Shipper complies with the

Capacity Release Request provisions in Sections 19.3 and 19.4, or the

re-release qualifies for any of the other exemptions from bidding,

referenced in subsections (a), (c) or (d) hereof.




(a) A Capacity Release Request received by Trailblazer

via EDI (which is applicable only for Prearranged Capacity Release

Request) or through Trailblazer's Interactive Website prior to the

starting time of the open season requested by the Releasing Shipper in

its Capacity Release Request in conformance with this Section 19 shall

be posted on the Informational Postings portion of Trailblazer's

Interactive Website as requested. The posting shall contain the

information contained in the Capacity Release Request, except that the

minimum price in any minimum price condition requested to be held

confidential by the Releasing Shipper (but not the existence of the

minimum bid condition), shall be kept confidential and shall not be

posted. The posting shall also include the maximum reservation charge,

if applicable, (including all reservation surcharges) applicable to the

capacity subject to the Capacity Release Request the beginning and

ending time for the open season and the time the notice was posted.

Trailblazer shall post the Capacity Release Request upon receipt,

unless the Releasing Shipper requests otherwise. If the Releasing

Shipper requests a posting time, Trailblazer will comply with that

request as long as it comports with the deadlines set forth in this

Section 19.
