20. CAPACITY RELEASE (Continued)


20.3(a) A Releasing Shipper may release capacity to a Prearranged

Replacement Shipper for any period of thirty-one (31) days or less

without having to comply with the notification and bidding requirements

of this Section 20. A Releasing Shipper may not re-release capacity

covered by this Section 20.3(a) to the same Prearranged Replacement

Shipper until twenty-eight (28) days after the first release period has

ended. The releases covered by this Section 20.3(a) may not extend more

than thirty-one (31) days. However, such releases may be continued under

the provisions set forth in Section 20.3(b). A release under this

Section 20.3(a) must be submitted in writing to Transporter to be posted

to the EBB and/or Designated Site prior to commencement of the release

setting forth the following:


1. Releasing Shipper's name, contract number and contract

quantity to be released;


2. Receipt Point, Delivery Point(s) and volumes associated

with each;


3. commencement date for the release, termination date for the



4. name of Prearranged Replacement Shipper and demand, capacity

or reservation rates to be paid;


5. any specific conditions of the release, which conditions

must be objectively stated, applicable to all bidders,

operationally feasible, non-discriminatory to other Shippers and

consistent with this Tariff. If Releasing Shipper submits no

release conditions, or Transporter finds the requested conditions

operationally infeasible or inconsistent with this Tariff, the

released capacity shall be subject to the conditions currently

effective in this Tariff. Releasing Shipper must notify

Transporter if the minimum conditions precedent to the release are

not to be posted on the EBB and/or Designated Site until after the

capacity is awarded; and
