BID FORMAT AND AWARD PROCESS

During the Open Season period, National Fuel will accept requests for this transportation service under National Fuel’s FT and FT-S rate schedules.  Requests for rate discounts will not be accepted.  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 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 will award Niagara year-round capacity independently of Niagara winter-only capacity.  Bidders desiring both Niagara year-round capacity and Niagara winter-only capacity should submit separate bid forms (as described below) for each request.
