6.9 Availability of Released Capacity - Released capacity shall be

made available on a nondiscriminatory basis and shall be assigned

based on the results of a bid period or a pre-arrangement

complying with the procedures described below.


6.10 Awarding of Contingency Bids - Released capacity subject to

contingency bids will not be awarded until the bidding shipper has

notified TransColorado, through TransColorado's EBB, that all

contingencies have been met. If all contingencies have not been

met by the deadline established by the releasing shipper, the

released capacity shall revert back to the releasing shipper

unless TransColorado has been directed otherwise.


6.11 Bid Period - No bid period shall be required for the following

transactions: (1) a pre-arranged release that (a) is for the

maximum applicable reservation charge, (b) is for the full term

for which the capacity is released and (c) meets all terms and

conditions of the release; and (2) a pre-arranged release for a

term of 31 days or less where the parties have negotiated and

posted to TransColorado's EBB a pre-arranged deal at the maximum

rate meeting all terms and conditions of the release.


A releasing shipper may post through TransColorado's EBB a pre-

arranged deal at the maximum rate to determine if another shipper

would be willing to offer better terms and conditions. All other

releases, except as indicated below, shall be subject to a bid

period conducted according to the following procedures:


(a) For pre-arranged releases (1) at the maximum reservation

charge and for the full term of the release or (2) for 31

days or less the releasing Shipper shall post notice of the

released capacity on TransColorado's EBB within 48 hours

after the transaction commences. However, a rollover of a

pre-arranged release of 31 days or less may occur only if

the parties negotiate and post on TransColorado's EBB a pre-

arranged deal at the maximum rate meeting all the terms and

conditions of the release.
