PROCEDURE FOR BIDDING AND AWARDING

THE POSTED CAPACITY

 

Northwest will only accept electronic bids (see instructions below) for all of the posted

package(s) of available transportation capacity.

 

Duplicate bids will be discarded. Maximum rate bids will be accepted for any primary

contract term, subject to available capacity. The posted capacity will be awarded to the

shipper’s bid with the greatest economic value, subject to the pre-arranged shipper’s one-

time right to match the highest bid(s).

 

The economic value of each bid will be determined on a present value basis. In case

of a tie, each tied shipper will have the right to improve its bid by submitting an

improved bid within 24 hours of the bid close time.  Such improved bids shall be

submitted electronically through Northwest Passage.

 

 

If a tie still exists, such capacity shall be awarded on a pro-rata basis to the shippers

indicating a willingness to accept a pro-rata share. All bidding and awarding will be

conducted in accordance with General Terms and Conditions Section 25 of Northwest’s Tariff.
