ORDER TRANSFERRING BLANKET AUTHORIZATION

TO EXPORT AND IMPORT NATURAL GAS

TO AND FROM CANADA









DOE/FE ORDER NO. 1226-A












In DOE/FE Order No. 1226 (Order 1226), issued in FE Docket No. 96-87-NG on December 11, 1996, Westcoast Gas Services Inc. (WGSI), a Delaware corporation with its principal place of business in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, was authorized to import natural gas, including liquefied natural gas (LNG), from Canada and to export natural gas to Canada. Specifically, WGSI has authority to import up to 1,000 Bcf of natural gas, including LNG, from Canada and to export up to 1,000 Bcf of natural gas to Canada over a two-year period beginning on the date of the initial import after December 31, 1996.(1) Deliveries under Order 1226 commenced on January 1, 1997; therefore, this authorization will expire on December 31, 1998.

On May 12, 1998, Engage Canada, succesor to WGSI, filed an application requesting that Order 1226 be transferred to Engage Energy Canada, L.P. (Engage Canada). Effective June 1, 1997, all assets of WGSI were transferred to the Limited Partnership and all contractual arrangements were finalized to entitle Engage Canada to carry on the business of WGSI. Engage Canada seeks to continue the same import/export activities authorized under Order 1226, and under the terms and conditions described in that Order.

Accordingly, pursuant to section 3 of the Natural Gas Act, the import and export authorization conferred by DOE/FE Order No. 1226 is transferred from Westcoast Gas Services Inc. to Engage Energy Canada, L.P. (Engage Canada), effective the date of this Order. Engage Canada shall be bound by all terms and conditions set forth in Order 1226.

Issued in Washington, D.C., on June 5, 1998.
