Specifically, EnCana (formerly 3698157 Canada Ltd.) and Alberta Ltd. request the Commission to issue an order: (1) Transferring NGA section 3 authorization for the operation and maintenance of facilities for the importation of natural gas from the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada, into Montana; and (2) authorizing the assignment of EnCana's January 11, 2001 Presidential Permit for the operation and maintenance of facilities at the Saskatchewan, Canada/Montana import point.

The import facilities consist of (1) a gas meter station in LSD 5-4-1-14 W3M adjacent to Highway 4 approximately 0.5 mile north of the Village of Monchy, Saskatchewan; and (2) a 219.1 mm O.D. pipeline located directly south of this meter station across the Canada-United States border at Section 6 T37N R30E, extending a distance of approximately 2438 feet. The pipeline crosses the International Boundary and interconnects with a gathering line owned by EnCana Energy Resources, Inc. in Montana.
