is Pipeline's currently-effective maximum rate for

service applicable to Releasing Customer, plus all

applicable surcharges and transition costs, excluding

any marketing fees. This maximum rate applies

notwithstanding any discounts granted under the

Service Agreement between Releasing Customer and

Pipeline. The posted notice must specify whether the

Releasing Customer will consider bids on a volumetric

basis; if so, the maximum applicable reservation rate

shall be the 100% load factor derivative of

applicable reservation charges, as set forth on Sheet

Pipeline and Replacement Customer subsequently

negotiate different usage rate components as

permitted by the applicable Rate Schedule,

Replacement Customer shall pay the usage rates

otherwise applicable to Releasing Customer. Where

Releasing Customer is subject to a Negotiated Rate,

the Recourse Rate shall be used for purposes of

bidding under this Section 23.
