Harry A. Blackmun:

I have to announce to say per curiam in 77-1652, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission versus the Shell Oil Company and a companion case 77-1654, Consumer Energy Council of America versus Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, cases in which Mr. Justice Stewart took no part in either consideration or decision.

The judgment below was affirmed by an equally divided court.
