CANADA'S NEB CLAMPS DOWN ON SHORT TERM GAS SALES TO CALIFORNIA
Canada's National Energy Board has taken interim action to limit new short term sales of natural gas to California. NEB said companies planning to export gas under existing short term orders via the Kingsgate, B.C., border point must now receive prior permission. Shippers seeking new short term approvals must also seek board approval. Companies seeking approvals will be required to reveal the pipeline system to be used, destination of the gas, and end user.
