24.2 Negotiated Rate Applicability (Cont'd)


(d) Expiring/Terminating Service. An existing

Shipper with a right-of-first-refusal may

retain all or a portion of its capacity, when

such capacity is posted subject to Negotiated

Rate offers, (1) by matching the highest

Negotiated Rate offer submitted by another

Shipper that meets or exceeds the lowest rate

that Chandeleur is willing to accept for such

service, or (2) by paying a Recourse Rate or

the Negotiated Rate for the capacity it wishes

to retain; provided, however, that nothing

herein shall obligate Chandeleur to render

service to any Shipper at rates less than

Chandeleur's then applicable maximum tariff

(ii) Revenue (rate x quantity); or

(iii)Net Present Value (rate x quantity x term,

discounted using the interest rate(s)

shown in the posting);


(2) If capacity is posted for a period of more

than three days, Chandeleur may specify any

bid evaluation method it chooses, provided

that the bid evaluation criteria is non-

discriminatory and assigns value only to

guaranteed revenues. The evaluation method

will be described in sufficient detail so
