    On August 8, 1997, the Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the 
Department of Energy (DOE) authorized DYPM, formerly Electric 
Clearinghouse, Inc., to transmit electric energy from the United States 
to Canada as a power marketer (Order No. EA-122). On October 15, 1999, 
that authorization to export electricity was renewed in EA-122-A for a 
period of five years which expired on October 15, 2004.
    On October 18, 2004, the FE received an application from DYPM to 
renew its authorization to transmit energy from the United States to 
Canada for a term of five years. DYPM, a Texas corporation having its 
principal place of business in Houston, Texas is a power marketer that 
does not own or control any electric generation or transmission 
facilities nor does it have any franchised service territory in the 
United States.
    In its application DYPM notes that it has had no electricity export 
transactions to Canada in the past several months. However, DYPM 
requests DOE to expedite the processing of its application in order to 
take advantage of certain market situations that could necessitate DYPM 
to make sales into the Ontario Independent Electricity Market Operator. 
Accordingly, DOE has shortened the public comment period to 15 days.
    DYPM proposes to export electric energy to Canada and to arrange 
for the delivery of those exports over the international transmission 
facilities owned by Basin Electric Power Cooperative, Bonneville Power 
Administration, Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative, International 
Transmission Company, Joint Owners of the Highgate Project, Long Sault, 
Inc., Maine Electric Power Company, Maine Public Service Company, 
Minnesota Power, Inc., Minnkota Power Cooperative, New York Power 
Authority, Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation, Northern States Power, 
Vermont Electric Power Company and Vermont Electric Transmission 
Company.
    The construction of each of the international transmission 
facilities to be utilized by DYPM as more fully described in the 
application, has previously been authorized by a Presidential permit 
issued pursuant to Executive Order 10485, as amended.
    Procedural Matters: Any person desiring to become a party to this 
proceeding or to be heard by filing comments or protests to this 
application should file a petition to intervene, comment or protest at 
the address provided above in accordance with Sec. Sec.  385.211 or 
385.214 of the FERC's Rules of Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.211, 
385.214). Fifteen copies of each petition and protest should be filed 
with the DOE on or before the date listed above.
    Comments on the DYPM application to export to electric energy to 
Canada should be clearly marked with Docket EA-122-B. Additional copies 
are to be filed directly with Betsy R. Carr, Sr. Director & Regulatory 
Counsel, and Steven F. Dalhoff, Director, Regulatory Affairs, Dynegy 
Power Marketing, Inc., 1000 Louisiana, Suite 5800, Houston, TX 77002-
5050.
