SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Energy (DOE) regulates

pursuant to sections 301(b) and 402(f) of the Department of Energy 
Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7151(b) and 7172(f)). Such exports require 
authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 
824a(e)).
    On October 2, 2014, DOE issued Order No. EA-295-B, which authorized 
MLCI 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 authorization expires on October 5, 2019. 
On June 3, 2019, MLCI filed an application with DOE for renewal of the 
export authorization contained in Order No. EA-295-B for an additional

affiliated with any entity that owns generation assets in the United 
States,'' and that ``neither [the Applicant] nor any of its affiliates 
holds a franchise or service territory for the transmission, 
distribution or sale of electric power.'' The electric energy that the 
Applicant proposes to export to Canada would be surplus energy 
purchased from third parties such as electric utilities and Federal 
power marketing agencies pursuant to voluntary agreements. The existing 
international transmission facilities to be utilized by the Applicant 
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

(5) copies of such comments, protests, or motions to intervene should

Pe[ntilde]a, Merrill Lynch Commodities, Inc., 20 E. Greenway Plaza,

    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 DOE determines 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.
