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 DART system (or in writing for posting

on Transporter's DART system if Transporter's DART system 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 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 23 shall be posted on Transporter'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 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.
