Recommended Term:

CIG recommends that bids have a proposed term of no less than two years (although CIG reserves the right to reject any bid which fails to comport with the provisions of this open season).

Open Season Dates:

Open Season Start: 11:00 AM MST, February 6, 2019

 

Bids due: 2:00 PM MST, Wednesday, February 20, 2019

 

Bids awarded by: 11:00 AM MST, February 21, 2019

 

Email attached Bid Sheet to KMWestBids@KinderMorgan.com

 

NOTE:  CIG will rely upon the time the bid is received to determine whether the bid was timely.  Bids that are received (as determined by the time stamp on the CIG's email inbox) after the “End” date and time listed above will be considered invalid bids and will not be eligible for an award of capacity in this Open Season.  CIG recommends that bids be submitted well in advance of the closing time listed above to minimize the risk that any email delay could cause a bid to be excluded from consideration.

 

General Open Season Requirements:

 

Bids must include the bidding party's name, Open Season Name (‘Cheyenne to Green River'), quantity, term, and rate.

 

By submitting a bid, the bidding party certifies that:

(a)   All information contained in the bid is complete and accurate.

(b)   It satisfies, or will be able to satisfy, all the requirements of CIG's FERC Gas Tariff including, without limitation, the creditworthiness requirements.

(c)   The person submitting the bid has full authority to bind the bidding party.

 

The bid rate must be presented as: 1) the reservation rate per Dth/month, 2) the reservation rate per Dth/day (which will be converted to a Dth/month rate for the Transportation Service Agreement (TSA) by rounding to the fourth decimal the result of the formula (daily rate x 365)/12), or (c) the maximum tariff rate.

 

In addition to the bid rate, each bidding party shall be subject to the applicable maximum usage rate and maximum usage surcharges, all other maximum rates, charges and surcharges, including ACA, Fuel and L&U, and any other authorized surcharges assessed under the applicable Rate Schedule of CIG's FERC Gas Tariff as those amounts may be amended or superseded from time-to-time.  This includes incremental lateral charges and any third party charges resulting from the use of capacity that CIG may hold on other pipelines.

 

CIG reserves the right to reject negotiated rate bids, bids that have rates less than the maximum recourse rate, bids stated as the dollar equivalent of the current maximum recourse rate, bids that are incomplete, contain offers of varying rates within the term, contain additional or modified terms or are inconsistent with the provisions of CIG's FERC Gas Tariff.  CIG also reserves the right to reject bids for quantities that are not for the same quantity for the duration of the term.

 

CIG notes that a bidding party that is awarded capacity may be required to execute multiple contracts if the bidding party bids for varying MDQ such that the MDQ will not vary in each contract.

 

CIG also reserves the right to seek clarification of bids that have what appears to be an obvious error.  Any clarification by bidders must be provided in writing and within the time requested by CIG.  Such clarifications shall be incorporated as part of the binding bid submitted by the bidder.

 

CIG notes that FERC Order No. 894, in some cases, prohibits multiple affiliates of the same entity from bidding in an Open Season for capacity in which the pipeline may allocate capacity on a pro rata basis.  It appears to CIG that the restrictions imposed by FERC Order No. 894 will be applicable in this Open Season and FERC recommends that potential bidders review and adhere to the requirements of that FERC Order.

 

Creditworthiness Requirements:

 

The successful bidder(s) must satisfy the creditworthiness requirements of CIG's FERC Gas Tariff.  CIG will assess the creditworthiness of each successful bidder in accordance with Section 4.14 of CIG's FERC Gas Tariff.  Bidders that fail to satisfy such creditworthiness requirements within a reasonable time will have their capacity award withdrawn.  CIG will treat the financial statements provided by bidders as confidential.

 

Each successful bidder and CIG shall enter into and execute an FTSA (or FTSAs as noted earlier) reflecting the terms of its bid as awarded by CIG.  The FTSA will be in the form contained in CIG's FERC Gas Tariff.

 

Evaluation Criteria:

 

If CIG receives acceptable bids for capacity in excess of the actual amount of available capacity, then CIG will award and/or allocate the capacity in a manner that yields the highest total PV as calculated below. In determining which bid(s) yield the highest total PV, CIG reserves the right to combine multiple bids, in whole or in part, in a manner that results in a total PV of the combined bids that exceeds the highest PV achievable by accepting one or more of the disaggregated bids. This process could result in a bidder being awarded less capacity than requested (unless such bidder elects on its bid sheet not to accept a pro rata allocation of capacity).

 

The PV for each month will be calculated as follows:

 

PV = (R X Q)/((1+i) to the power of n)

Where:

R = the monthly reservation bid rate

Q = the monthly bid quantity

   i = the monthly discount rate of 0.4317% (which is the annual discount rate of 5.18% divided by 12).

n = the number of months from the earliest date the capacity is available in the Open Season to the month the revenue will be received (the first month capacity is available n = 1, the second month n = 2, and so on).
