close of the bid period. If the existing Shipper is not

willing to commit to pay the maximum rate, Shipper can

initiate negotiations on the terms for an extension by

giving Transporter written notice within ten (10) days after

Transporter's notice. If Transporter and Shipper do not

reach agreement on the terms and conditions under which

service will be extended within the shorter of sixty (60)

Days thereafter or the expiration date of the Service

Agreement ("Negotiation Period"), then Shipper shall have no

further rights under this Section 21 or 18 C.F.R. 284.221.

During the Negotiation Period, the parties may freely

negotiate the terms and conditions for continued service,

including the effective rate, and if mutual agreement is

reached, services shall be continued accordingly; provided,

however, that Transporter shall have no obligation to agree

to a rate lower than the maximum applicable rate.




22.1 General. Transporter shall provide for electronic

communication with its Shippers in compliance with GISB

Standards, and also shall provide for such electronic

communication with third parties that are not Shippers

and are authorized to act on behalf of Shippers or

others interconnected with Transporter's system on a

basis that is not unduly discriminatory. Transporter

specifically shall allow such interface using the

protocols, data sets, and codes detailed in the GISB

Standards. Transporter also may allow non-standard

communication, including use of its own EBB and use

of paper documents pursuant to agreements among

Transporter, its Shippers, authorized agents of

Shippers or other third parties. References in this

Tariff to Transporter's EBB or communication or

submission of information "electronically" shall be

deemed to mean the utilization, either directly or via

a third-party service provider, of the electronic data

interchange system accessible via Transporter's EBB,

(NorAm Edge), or the use of GISB X-12 data sets via the

internet, as such electronic methods may be effective

and compatible with Transporter's system from time to

time. If Transporter determines that an electronic

method does not support the submission of an item of

information required by this Tariff to be submitted

electronically, the information may be communicated

in writing by other means. Transporter shall maintain

an Electronic Bulletin Board available to all Shippers
