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

one year or more at the maximum reservation charge applicable to

the capacity being released; or (b) 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

23.4(a) and (b). Such Capacity Release Request must be delivered

to Transporter's Interactive Web Site (or in writing for posting

on Transporter's Interactive Web Site if Transporter's Interactive

Web Site is unavailable for receiving Capacity Release Requests)

sufficiently in advance so that the release may become effective

under Section 23.9 before the release transaction is to commence.

A Releasing Shipper may not 1) rollover, extend or in any way

continue a Short-term Prearranged Release without first complying

with advance posting and bidding requirements, or 2) rerelease

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 23.3 and 23.4.




(a) A Capacity Release Request received by Transporter via EDI

(which is applicable only for Prearranged Capacity Release Request) or

through Transporter's Interactive Web Site prior to the starting time of

the open season requested by the Releasing Shipper in its Capacity

Release Request in conformance with this Section 23 shall be posted on

Transporter's Interactive Web Site as requested. The posting shall

contain the information contained in the Capacity Release Request,

except that all identified 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 ceiling on such releases has 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. Transporter shall post the Capacity

Release Request upon receipt, unless the Releasing Shipper requests

otherwise. If the Releasing Shipper requests a posting time,

Transporter will comply with that request as long as it comports with

the deadlines set forth in this Section 23.
