By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and statutes of the United States of America, including Section 13 of the Emergency Natural Gas Act of 1977 (Public Law 95-2), and Section 301 of Title 3 of the United States Code, and as President of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

SECTION 1. There is hereby delegated to the Chairman of the Federal Power Commission, hereafter the Chairman, all of the authority vested in the President by the Emergency Natural Gas Act of 1977, except for the authority to declare and terminate a natural gas emergency pursuant to Section 3 of said Act. Nothing in such delegation shall be construed as delegating such authority to the Federal Power Commission as a collective body, except insofar as the Chairman may further delegate his authority under Section 3 of this Order.

SEC. 2. The Chairman shall, to the extent he deems appropriate, consult with the Secretary of the Interior, the Administrator of the Federal Energy Administration, other members of the Federal Power Commission and the heads of other Executive agencies in exercising the authority delegated to him by this Order.

SEC. 3. All authority delegated to the Chairman by this Order may be further delegated, in whole or in part, by the Chairman to any other officer of the United States or to any Executive agency.

SEC. 4. The heads of all Executive agencies shall cooperate with and assist the Chairman in carrying out the authority delegated to him by this Order.

SEC. 5. All Executive agencies shall, to the extent permitted by law, provide the Chairman on request such administrative support and information as may be necessary to carry out the authority delegated to him by this Order.
