On August 18, 1994, the Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) granted Centra Gas Ontario Inc. (Centra Ontario) long-term authority to import and export natural gas from and to Canada pursuant to DOE/FE Order No. 968 (Order 968), in FE Docket No.94-55-NG.(1) Under this import/export authorization, Centra Ontario purchases natural gas from various Canadian suppliers in western Canada and imports up to 1,974 MMcf of this gas per year near Warroad, Minnesota (Sprague, Manitoba) for transport on Centra Pipelines Minnesota Inc. for redelivery into Canada near Baudette, Minnesota.
