BID FORMAT AND AWARD PROCESS:

 

During the Open Season period, National Fuel will accept requests for the FT or EFT service for the capacity as indicated. Requests for rate discounts or for discounts of fuel or loss retention will not be considered during this Open Season. Shippers may request all or part of the available capacity. 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% (9.6% annually) for discounting purposes. In the event that more than one shipper submits requests that are equivalent in value and term, the available capacity shall be prorated to those shippers based on the quantities requested.

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.
