Alliance Files an Application for Waiver to FERC

    Subject to FERC approval, Alliance will contract with Pecan North
    Dakota for a new transportation agreement

    CALGARY, Sept. 15 /CNW/ - Today, Alliance Pipeline L.P. ("Alliance"),
filed proposed tariff sheets at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
(FERC) to enable Pecan Pipeline (North Dakota), Inc. ("Pecan North Dakota"), a
wholly owned subsidiary of EOG Resources Inc., to transport dense phase gas
under a waiver of the liquefiable hydrocarbon specification currently
contained in Alliance's FERC Gas Tariff. Because the Pecan North Dakota
receipts will be blended with much larger quantities entering from Canada, the
combined gas stream delivered at the Chicago market will remain within
Alliance's FERC Tariff gas quality specifications. Gas transported on the
Alliance system is processed at Aux Sable Liquid Products, L.P. extraction
plant in Channahon, Illinois.
    Subject to FERC approval, Pecan North Dakota will contract with Alliance
for an initial ten-year transportation agreement.
