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 #102. 

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  Confirm KMLP'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.


All bidders must satisfy KMLP's creditworthiness requirements, as stated in Section 12 of the General Terms and Conditions of KMLP's FERC Gas Tariff, prior to submitting a bid.  Any bid submitted which causes bidder to exceed bidder's pre-determined level of creditworthiness is deemed an invalid bid.  Potential bidders are encouraged to contact KMLP's Credit Department prior to bid submittal to determine whether they have established sufficient credit for their bid.


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

En = Summation of months 1 through n (Sigma)

n = term in months

R = Incremental monthly revenue

Dth = TQ of Contract

i = Monthly Discount Factor of 0.8333%


KMLP 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).
