3.1 Procedures for Sale of Capacity.


(a) Sale of Capacity. Upon the availability of new storage capacity resulting from an

expansion of ASC's facilities or as storage capacity becomes available in ASC's

facilities, ASC shall sell such capacity to prospective Customers either via the

open season procedures described in Sections 3.1(b)-(f) below or via the first-come,

the procedures being at ASC's sole option. This Section 3.1 shall apply to sales of

capacity under Rate Schedules FSS, NNSS, FP and FL.


(b) Notice of open season. If ASC elects to conduct an open season pursuant to Section 3.1(a)

above, ASC shall post notice of the open season on its Internet Web Site and, in the case

of service from an expansion of ASC's facilities, no earlier than one year before such

facilities are expected to be available for service. Such notice shall set forth when

the open season begins and ends, the type of service being offered, how and where interested

parties may submit requests for service, the criteria that will be used to evaluate bids

("Bid Evaluation Procedures"), and additional details about the open season.


(c) Duration. An open season held pursuant to Section 3.1(b) above shall be held for a period

for available capacity posted pursuant to this Section 3.1(d), ASC will notify the potential

Customer that submitted the rejected bid of the reason(s) for such rejection via e-mail.
