Capacity Release 

To contract for capacity release, use our QuestLine® System.

Questar Gas has contracted for firm transportation, storage and no-notice transportation service with Questar Pipeline Company. As part of these contractual arrangements, Questar Gas will pay full rate for this capacity whether the capacity is used or not. On days that Questar Gas does not need to use this capacity, it will release the capacity back to Questar Pipeline to be sold to other parties.

Questar Pipeline will then post the released capacity services on its web-based Contract Administration System, QuestLine®, for parties to bid on and purchase. Contractual arrangements for this released capacity will be with Questar Pipeline directly. Any revenue received from Questar Pipeline for capacity released and resold will be credited to Questar Gas's monthly bill.

Questar Gas can lower its costs by releasing and maximizing the revenue from its release capacity. This released-capacity program enables Questar Gas to resell services it needs on peak days to other parties during times of the year when the service from Questar Pipeline is not needed.

• Acquiring Released Capacity
There are two ways to acquire a parcel of Questar Gas's released capacity. The customer can wait until Questar Gas releases unneeded capacity back to Questar Pipeline. It is then posted on Questar Pipeline's QuestLine® System and the customer can bid a price and conditions to purchase that capacity.

The second way to acquire Questar Gas's released capacity is to work directly with Questar Gas to prearrange a deal. This prearranged deal will include all the negotiated terms, conditions, price, quantity and time frames agreeable to the customer and Questar Gas. Questar Gas then releases the capacity to Questar Pipeline's web-based QuestLine® System. This transaction, however, is released as a prearranged deal. A prearranged deal gives a customer more control over the transaction. Customers with prearranged deals have the right of first refusal. If another party sees the prearranged deal posted on Questar Pipeline's QuestLine® System and chooses to exceed the agreed upon price, terms, conditions, quantity and time frame, the first party can choose to match the increased price or terms or let the other party purchase the released capacity.

• Capacity Release Contracts
Questar Gas's transportation customers should call their account representative. Marketers working on behalf of on-system transportation customers or interested in Questar Pipeline capacity for off-system business, should call Questar Gas's marketing department.

• Working with Questar Pipeline's QuestLine® Contracting System
In order to bid on Questar Gas's released capacity or contract for capacity specified in a prearranged deal, customers need to have the proper hardware, keyboard, memory, modem, monitor and access codes to work with Questar Pipeline's QuestLine® System.

• Firm Transportation Capacity Release - Receipt and Delivery Points
Questar Gas may release un-utilized firm transportation service from several receipt points to a delivery point. Questar Gas will only be allowed to release the receipt and delivery points it has listed on its firm transportation agreement with Questar Pipeline.

• Flexible Receipt and Delivery Points
An acquiring shipper may nominate receipt and delivery points other than those listed on the released firm transportation agreement. The method of choosing an alternate receipt or delivery point is through the nomination process.
