Reservations

Without limiting or waiving any other rights that Tennessee may have with respect to this Open Season, Tennessee reserves the following rights:

1.            At any time during this Open Season, upon notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate this Open Season, to extend the Open Season Period, or to modify this Open Season.

2.            To clarify and finalize bids containing non-specific, ambiguous, and/or nontransactable bid information (including, without limitation, rate, term, receipt or delivery points, and/or TQ including TQ associated with specific receipt and/or delivery points) or discrepancies in bid information, provided that Tennessee shall have no obligation to do so.

3.            On a not unduly discriminatory basis, to reject any bid or service request that, in Tennessee's sole determination, is incomplete, is inconsistent with the terms of this Open Season, contains additions or modifications to the terms of the open season, is otherwise deficient in any respect (including failure to provide credit support as Tennessee deems necessary), or requests service outside the scope of this Open Season.

4.            To reject any bid that does not specify capacity within the paths posted above.

5.            To award capacity to mutually agreeable alternate receipt or delivery points if capacity is unavailable at the meters specified in the bid.

6.            To award capacity for a quantity less than the bid quantity, if sufficient capacity is not available to award the entire bid quantity.

9.            To reject contingent bids.

Submission of Bids

This Open Season is for capacity available for the receipt/delivery point paths specified above. In order to be considered eligible to be awarded capacity following this Open Season, potential shippers must submit a bid that specifies terms, volumes, receipt points and delivery points that are consistent with the respective dates, quantities and associated receipt and delivery zones outlined above.  All Bids should refer to Open Season #1096. 

Available capacity volumes are contingent upon mainline, meter and lateral capacity. Bids cannot exceed the stated maximum volumes.

Parties interested in this capacity should submit a binding Firm Transportation request through the DART system or submit a binding bid via facsimile at (713) 369-9305.  Customers may also submit a binding bid via e-mail by e-mailing their bid to TGPBidroom@kindermorgan.com.  Confirm Tennessee's receipt of any bid by contacting the Bidroom between 8 A.M. and 5 P.M. CST, Monday through Friday.

All bids submitted during the open season may be replaced with a higher Net Present Value (“NPV”) bid during the Open Season Period.  Bids cannot be replaced with lower NPV bids.  Upon completion of this Open Season, all remaining bids will be considered binding until a successful bid(s) has been awarded. 

 

Evaluation Method

All final bids for each Proposal received during the open season will be evaluated on an NPV basis using the following factors:

NPV = En [R*(1 / (1+i)**n)]

En = Summation of months 1 through n (Sigma)

n = term in months

R = Incremental monthly revenue

i = Monthly Discount Factor of 0.8333%

Tennessee reserves the right to accept any one bid or combination of bids that will result in the largest aggregate NPV for the aforementioned package(s).
