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

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

applicable to the capacity being released; (b) a Prearranged Release

for less than one (1) year at the applicable maximum rate, provided

that this exception shall not apply where the rate ceiling on such

transactions has been waived pursuant to 18 C.F.R. Section 284.8(i);

or (c) a Short-term Prearranged Release. 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 to Trailblazer's DART system (or in

writing for posting on Trailblazer's DART system if Trailblazer's

DART system 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 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.




(a) A Capacity Release Request received by Trailblazer

via EDI (which is applicable only for Prearranged Capacity Release

Request) or through the DART system 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 Trailblazer's DART system as requested. The posting shall contain

the information contained in the Capacity Release Request, except

that all identifying information, and 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 (including

all reservation surcharges) applicable to the capacity subject to the

Capacity Release Request or a statement that the maximum rate does

not apply where the rate ceilings on such releases have been waived

pursuant to 18 C.F.R. Section 284.8(i), 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.
