Capacity Release Request must be delivered via Natural's

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 or 19.4, or the re-

release qualifies for any of the other exemptions from bidding,

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