NOTICE TO: MARKET PARTICIPANTS

Re: Stakeholder Comments on Strawdog Draft –Intertie Conduct in the Post Quick Hits World

On May 7, 2008 the MSA notified stakeholders that it had commenced a Stakeholder Consultation Process in relation to Intertie Conduct in the post Quick Hits world.  At that time the MSA published a ‘Strawdog’ draft upon which interested parties were invited to provide comment.

Comments were received from five market participants during the comment period set out in the related Project Schedule.  In accordance with its Stakeholder Consultation Process, the MSA is publishing the comments received on the Strawdog draft.  Those comments can be found through the following link(s):

ATCO

EPCOR

ENMAX

TransAlta

TransCanada

The MSA is considering the comments received and will formally respond to the comments when it publishes the revised Draft guideline on Intertie Conduct.  That step is anticipated to occur on June 9, 2008.

The Project Schedule for the Stakeholder Consultation Process will be set out at each stage, and will be updated as applicable.  For clarity, the process is currently in the ‘Develop’ stage and the expected timelines remain those set in the Notice of May 7, 2008 http://www.albertamsa.ca/789.html.

Interested parties can track this process through the Current Stakeholder Consultations link on the MSA website home page: http://www.albertamsa.ca/.

The generic Stakeholder Consultation Process can be found on the MSA website through the following link: http://www.albertamsa.ca/files/Principles_and_Framework_for_MSA_Public_Projects_-_Revised_01-15-08(2).pdf.

We appreciate your participation in these matters.

Yours truly,
