BID FORMAT AND AWARD PROCESS

During the Open Season period, National will accept requests for this transportation service to commence November 1, 2006.   Requests for rate discounts will only be considered for bids from Niagara to System Points service (FT-1 S).   No requests for discounts of fuel and loss retention will be accepted.   All acceptable requests will be ranked and capacity awarded based on the highest Net Present Value (NPV) of the reservation charge revenues, per unit of capacity (Dth/day) requested.   The NPV calculation will incorporate length of contract term and will utilize a monthly rate of 0.8% for discounting purposes.   In the event that more than one shipper submits requests that are equivalent in value, the best bid shall be the bid with the shortest term.   In the event that multiple shippers submit requests that are equivalent in value and term, the available capacity shall be prorated to those shippers based on the quantities requested.  

National Fuel has predetermined a minimum acceptable Reservation Rate Floor from Niagara to System Points Service (FT-1 S) bids and National Fuel will reject any discount below the Reservation Rate Floor.   National Fuel has not revealed the Reservation Rate Floor to any other person.

If it is necessary to prorate the capacity among successful bidders, service agreements will be sent to each successful bidder reflecting such proration.   These service agreements will provide for a range of quantities between the prorated quantities and the requested quantities.   The contract quantity will be within this range and will be determined by the capacity subscribed by all successful bidders under executed service agreements.
