SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Exports of electricity from the United 
States to a foreign country are regulated by the Department of Energy 
(DOE) pursuant to sections 301(b) and 402(f) of the Department of 
Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7151(b), 7172(f)) and require 
authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 
    On April 8, 2009, DOE issued Order No. EA-260-C to EPCOR Energy 
Marketing (US) Inc., which authorized EPCOR to transmit electric energy 
from the United States to Canada as a power marketer for a five-year 
term using existing international transmission facilities. That 
authority expires on April 8, 2014. On December 18, 2009, DOE issued 
Order No. EA-260-D changing EPCOR's name to CP Energy Marketing (US) 
Inc. and all other terms and conditions of Order EA-260-C remain 
unchanged. On March 26, 2014, CP Energy Marketing filed an application 
with DOE for renewal of the export authority contained in Order No. EA-
260-D for an additional five-year term. CP Energy Marketing is also 
requesting a short-term extension of the April 8, 2014 expiration date 
so that its current authorization will remain in effect until the date 
DOE acts on this application.
    In its application, CP Energy Marketing states that it does not own 
any electric generating or transmission facilities, and it does not 
have a franchised service area. The electric energy that CP Energy 
Marketing proposes to export to Canada would be surplus energy 
purchased from electric utilities, Federal power marketing agencies, 
and other entities within the United States and/or Canada. The existing 
international transmission facilities to be utilized by CP Energy 
Marketing have previously been authorized by Presidential permits 
issued pursuant to Executive Order 10485, as amended, and are 
appropriate for open access transmission by third parties.
    Procedural Matters: Any person desiring to be heard in this 
proceeding should file a comment or protest to the application at the 
address provided above. Protests should be filed in accordance with 
Rule 211 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) Rules of 
Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.211). Any person desiring to become 
a party to these proceedings should file a motion to intervene at the 
above address in accordance with FERC Rule 214 (18 CFR 385.214). Five 
copies of such comments, protests, or motions to intervene should be 
sent to the address provided above on or before the date listed above.
    Comments on the CP Energy Marketing application to export electric 
energy to Canada should be clearly marked with OE Docket No. EA-260-E.

Canada T2P 3C5 and Lisa Tucker, Esq., K&L Gates LLP, 1601 K Street NW., 
Washington, DC 20006.
    A final decision will be made on this application after the 
environmental impacts have been evaluated pursuant to DOE's National 
Environmental Policy Act Implementing Procedures (10 CFR part 1021) and 
after a determination is made by DOE that the proposed action will not 
have an adverse impact on the sufficiency of supply or reliability of 
the U.S. electric power supply system.
