BID FORMAT AND AWARD PROCESS:

During the Open Season period, National Fuel will accept requests for this transportation service under National Fuel’s EFT rate schedule. Requests for rate discounts or discounts of fuel and loss retention will not be accepted. Shippers may request all or part of the available capacity, and are allowed to revise their bids within the posting period. All acceptable requests will be ranked and the best bid(s) determined 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 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. 

 

 

Credit Requirements:

Shippers will be required to demonstrate creditworthiness or provide a credit alternative acceptable to National Fuel.

All requests must be submitted using a Service Request Form (“SRF”).  Bidders may complete an SRF online or download the PDF version from the Forms section of our website at http://www.nationalfuelgas.com/supply/market/Forms/Forms.aspx, or obtain one by contacting our Marketing Department at 716.857.7740.  If not submitted online, the completed form can be, mailed or faxed to the address listed below:
