ANR REASSIGNS CANADIAN GAS SUPPLY CONTRACTS

 DETROIT, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- ANR Pipeline Company, a subsidiary of The Coastal Corporation, today announced that it has reassigned a substantial portion of its Canadian gas supply contracts with Western Gas Marketing Ltd. to Wisconsin customers.
 The contracts with Western Gas Marketing, which account for some 159 million cubic feet per day, have been purchased by five local distribution companies in Wisconsin, which will continue to use ANR's capacity services to transport the gas to their respective markets.
 "Reassigning these contracts to existing customers ensures that ANR Pipeline will retain its historic transportation and service levels," said James F. Cordes, executive vice president of The Coastal Corporation and president of Coastal's Natural Gas Group.
 "This action will also eliminate any transition costs that may have been associated with these gas supply contracts when ANR begins operating under the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Order 636 on November 1, reducing costs that ANR would otherwise have passed along to its customers," continued Cordes.
& "This is just one in a series of actions ANR has initiated to maintain or increase market share while it minimizes transition costs to its customers," added Cordes.
 The Coastal Corporation (NYSE: CGP) is a Houston-based energy holding company. Coastal has consolidated assets of more than $10 billion and subsidiary operations in natural gas marketing, transmission and storage, petroleum refining and marketing, oil and gas exploration and production, coal, chemicals, trucking and independent power production.
