Open Season & Bidding Procedure Highlights

 

  • Bids must be received by TransCanada no later than 8:00 a.m. MT (Calgary time) each business day
  • Full winter term: November 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023. No partial period bids will be accepted.
  • System Segment Capacity:
    • Some posted segments share common capacity.  A successful bid on one system segment may reduce the capacity on another system segment.
    • Any bids that pertain to common capacity will be evaluated together for allocation purposes.
    • Each capacity segment requested must be on an individual bid form
  • Conditional Bidding: STFT bids can be conditioned on another STFT bid
    • If an STFT bid is conditional on other STFT bids, and any of these STFT bids require a reduction to the maximum daily quantity, the maximum daily quantity for the other STFT bid will be reduced by the same percentage.
    • Please submit each set of conditional bids in a separate fax, to provide clarity on which bids are related.
  • Minimum Acceptable Quantity: May be specified by bidder in the event that prorating capacity is necessary
  • There are no Diversions, Alternate Receipt Points, or Renewal Rights with any STFT service
  • Transportation sales in the Daily Existing Capacity Open Season will affect the available capacity in this STFT Open Season
  •  Please note that the STFT bid floor percentage is applied only to the applicable Daily Demand Toll for FT service and not applied to abandonment surcharge or pressure charge.
