17. FIRM CAPACITY RELEASE MECHANISM (Continued) Temporary releases of firm capacity for thirty-

one (31) days or less may be released without bidding.

Releases of over thirty-one (31) days and up to and

including one (1) year may be released without bidding if

the release is in the context of an Asset Management

Arrangement (AMA) or a State-regulated Retail Access Program

as defined by the Code of Federal Regulations Section 284.8.

Releases for a term greater than one (1) year may be

released without bidding if the release is at the applicable

maximum rate. Transporter must be notified of such releases

via an acceptable electronic communication mechanism as

described in Section 8 of these General Terms and Conditions

or via an alternate method in an emergency situation as

described in Subsection 17.13, so as to allow the Service

Agreement to be executed between Transporter and the

Replacement Shipper. Such release must be posted on the

Website in accordance with Subsection 17.3. No maximum rate limitation applies to releases

of firm capacity of one (1) year or less if the release is

to take effect on or before one (1) year from the date the

Transporter is notified of the release.
