submitted online via the LINK® System.

season or otherwise, any available capacity will be allocated between or

among such requests on a pro rata basis; provided, however, if one or more

party(s) is offered capacity on a pro rata basis pursuant to this Section

3.11(A) and any party declines, by notifying Pipeline in writing, to

contract for such capacity, such party's request shall be deemed null and
