Notification and Request for Bids
to Section 14.1(i) of the General Terms and Conditions (GT&C) of the
Southern Natural Gas Company (Southern) tariff, Southern is soliciting bids for
operational sale of gas quantities on its system. This operational sale is
attributable to the sale of a Dth equivalent quantity of fuel retained by
Southern for the cost of electricity used by electric compression. Pursuant to
Tariff Section 35.5 of the GT&C, Southern will sell fuel retained for
electricity and credit or debit, as appropriate, the net proceeds to the
Deferred Electricity Losses Account as provided in the Tariff.
on anticipated operating conditions, Southern expects to have up to 425,000 Dth available for sale on its system from 5/1/2017 to 5/31/2017 and
is soliciting interest to purchase some or all of this gas. Southern will
accept fixed-priced bids with ratable flows from 5/1/2017
to 5/31/2017 for the purchase of the gas. Evaluations will be made
based upon highest revenue (price and volume), in accordance with Section 20 of
the GT&C of Southern's Tariff and the ability of Southern to meet the
delivery requirements of the bid as determined by Southern in its operational
discretion. Bids of equal value will be awarded on a pro-rata basis. A
successful purchaser(s) will be required to transport the acquired gas from the
point(s) of custody transfer.
to bidding on the purchase of any gas quantities from Southern, the successful
bidder(s) must have entered into a NAESB form Purchase and Sales Agreement with
Southern and must satisfy Southern's credit requirements in Section 2.1(d) of
the GT&C. Southern is under no obligation to accept any special provisions
to the NAESB form Purchase and Sales Agreement and any bid which contains
special provisions may be deemed by Southern to be non-responsive. Southern reserves
the right to reject any and all bids that it determines do not meet the
requirements of this posting, or to reject any low bids. Southern reserves the
right to aggregate bids when multiple bids total less than the posted request.
