OG&E paid $41.9 million a year to Enogex for natural gas distribution and storage. That amount fell to $39.8 million a year in 2009 and will stay at that level until April 2014 under a joint stipulation and settlement agreement recommended Tuesday by Administrative Law Judge Jacqueline Miller.

Consumers won't be affected by the one-year extension, since it essentially preserves the existing terms of the contract. Those costs are already factored into customers' bills.

The proposed extension still needs the approval of the three-member Corporation Commission.
