Take notice that on June 25, 2003, ANR Pipeline Company (ANR) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1, the following tariff sheets proposed to become effective July 25, 2003:

Second Revised Sheet No. 182

Third Revised Sheet No. 186

ANR states that it seeks approval of (1) an assignment of its Gas Purchase Agreement (GPA) with Dakota Gasification Company, as well as related transportation capacity, to BP Canada Energy Marketing Corp. (BP) and (2) the above-referenced tariff sheets to implement recovery of the costs relating to such assignment. Subject to Commission approval, ANR states that it has agreed to assign to BP its obligations under the GPA, and permanently release to BP two transportation contracts with Northern Natural Gas Company and Northern Border Pipeline Company, respectively. ANR explains that assuming that the Assignment Agreement is effectuated on August 1, 2003, the parties have agreed to a buyout cost of approximately $9.5 million. To recover the buyout costs, ANR proposes to revise its existing tariff to include a mechanism that provides for a twelve month recovery period.
