  • 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
