Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB): Communication
system that allows parties to view pipeline information through
personal computers and phone lines. An online connection allows
information to be viewed on a screen to the user, and allows the
user to react by entering data, requesting new data, and/or
requesting files to be transferred. Order 636 mandated that
pipelines institute user-friendly EBBs to provide shippers with
timely information about available capacity.
Evergreen Clause: Provision in a contract that
allows an automatic extension beyond that primary term, unless
either party elects to terminate the contract by giving notice
prior to the anniversary date.
